Cardinals Hold Off Reds

Yadier Molina went 3-for-5 with a solo homer as the Cardinals downed the Reds 7-5 at Busch Stadium. Kolten Wong and Matt Holliday each knocked in two runs for St. Louis while Lance Lynn notched the win. Trevor Rosenthal earned his third save in the victory.

The Redbirds wrap up their three-game series with the Reds this afternoon at Busch Stadium. St. Louis sends right-hander Shelby Miller to the hill as he looks to bounce back from his rough first start. Cincinnati counters with Mike Leake. First pitch is set for 12:45.
