Harrison Bader fell a triple shy of hitting for the cycle and Luke Voit hit two of Memphis' six home runs as the Redbirds beat Colorado Springs, 10-4, on Wednesday afternoon.

Bader, the Cardinals' No. 5 prospect, finished 3-for-4 with a two-run homer in the first, his 10th of the year. Voit, batting third for Memphis on Wednesday, went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer in the first and a solo shot in the third, giving him a dozen this season and four in his last four games.

The 21-year-old went 7-2 with a 1.42 ERA in 10 starts at Double-A Springfield before earning a promotion earlier this month.
