Wacha Deals As Cards Win Home Opener

Yadier Molina ripped a three-run double in the first and the Cardinals went on to a 5-3 win over the Reds in the home opener yesterday. Michael Wacha tossed six innings of one-run ball for the victory while Matt Holliday and Allen Craig knocked in runs. St. Louis is now 4-and-3.

The Cardinals and Reds continue their three-game series tonight at Busch Stadium. St. Louis sends Lance Lynn to the hill looking for his second win in as many starts. Cincinnati counters with Homer Bailey, who looks to bounce back from a rough first start. First pitch is set for 7:15.
