Odubel Herrera's one-out solo homer in the bottom of the seventh inning Wednesday lifted the Philadelphia Phillies to a 4-3 win over the St. Louis Cardinals at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.

Homering in his fourth straight game, Herrera tagged reliever Sam Tuivailala (1-3) with the loss on a difficult day for St. Louis. The Cardinals lost starting pitcher Michael Wacha to an oblique injury in the bottom of the fourth, one batter after he served up a two-run homer to Cesar Hernandez that gave the Phillies a 3-1 edge.

Wacha, who entered with an 8-2 record, permitted six hits and three runs (one earned) in 3 2/3 innings. He walked two and fanned two.

Reliever Edubray Ramos (2-0) worked 1 2/3 scoreless innings to earn the win for Philadelphia. Adam Morgan got the last two outs to garner his first big league save, retiring Tommy Pham on a grounder to short with the tying run at second to end the game.

The Phillies initiated scoring in the first when Carlos Santana chased Rhys Hoskins home with a sacrifice fly. Hoskins singled with one out and reached third on Herrera's double.

Yadier Molina ambushed a first-pitch fastball from Jake Arrieta in the second, driving it deep into the left-field seats for the first of his two homers on the day and tying the score at 1.

Molina got to Arrieta again in the sixth, erasing a 3-1 deficit by clocking a two-run homer to right-center field. It plated Marcell Ozuna, who singled with two outs and advanced to second on a wild pitch.

Arrieta lasted six innings, yielding four hits and three runs. He walked two and whiffed five.

Herrera had three of Philadelphia's nine hits. St. Louis had seven hits.
