SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) -- Irving Lopez homered and tripled, scoring two runs as the Springfield Cardinals defeated the Midland RockHounds 4-1 on Tuesday. With the loss, the RockHounds snapped a six-game winning streak.

Chris Chinea homered and singled for Springfield.

Midland got on the board first with a run in the third inning. After reaching base on a walk, Brallan Perez advanced to third on a double by Luis Barrera and then scored on a single by Tyler Ramirez.

After tying the game in the third, the Cardinals took the lead for good with two runs in the fifth inning. Dylan Carlson and Randy Arozarena hit RBI singles en route to the two-run lead.

The Cardinals tacked on another run in the sixth when Chinea hit a solo home run.

Springfield southpaw Austin Warner (3-5) picked up a quality start and the win after allowing one run on six hits over six innings. Opposing starter Brian Howard (5-3) took the loss in the Texas League game after allowing four runs and nine hits over 5 2/3 innings.
