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.

What will the future hold for the Class of 2015? Time will tell.

My youngest has now graduated from high school. Back in 1980, I was the youngest of my family who graduated.
