Lynn Sharp As Cards Cruise Past Reds

The Cardinals scored four times in the sixth inning to back six stellar frames from Lance Lynn in a 5-1 win over the Reds at Busch Stadium. Lynn struck out 10 while allowing just four hits and a walk for the win. Matt Adams' pinch-homer erased a 1-0 deficit for St. Louis. Allen Craig and Carlos Beltran also knocked in runs for the Redbirds.

The Cardinals and Reds play the rubber match of their three-game series this afternoon at Busch Stadium. First pitch is set for 12:45 p.m., with Jake Westbrook slated to oppose Homer Bailey. The Reds won Monday's opener 13-4 before the Cards bounced back last night to win 5-1. Cincinnati is 5-and-3, while St. Louis is 4-and-4.

If you want to get someone's attention, whisper. That old investment brokerage ad is the opposite of what is going on regarding shootings in Ferguson and Tower Grove. When people threaten violence or blankly label one as a racist, it's very hard to listen. The same holds true for those who sum up the plight of impoverished black communities as "that's how those people are."
