But I have faith Im going to be able to get back right into it.Ender Inciarte and Matt Kemp each had two-run homers during a six-run ninth that featured a single and two-run double from pinch-hitter Chase dArnaud.I got two knocks in an inning, it was really cool, dArnaud said.Inciarte had three hits to extend his hitting streak to 17 games, and Kemps 24th of the season off Jonathan Broxton was his first since a trade from San Diego.Atlanta beat the Cardinals for the first time in five meetings this season.
