ANAHEIM, Calif., July 4 (UPI) -- Jon Jay hit a two-run homer to highlight a seven-run second inning Wednesday that brought St. Louis a 12-2 mauling of the Los Angeles Angels.

The Angels had a seven-game winning streak snapped with Jerome Williams suffering through the tough second frame.

Daniel Descalso doubled home two runs in the second and scored on a single by Matt Carpenter before Jay delivered his fifth home run of the season.

The big inning made things easy for starter Shelby Miller (9-6), who lasted six innings while giving up two runs on five hits with six strikeouts.

Carpenter also doubled home a run in the fifth and hit a solo homer in the seventh as part of a 13-hit attack. The Cardinals had lost their previous two games.

Williams (5-4) gave up seven hits with four hits and four walks in just 1 2/3 innings.
