Cards Crush Reds

Matt Adams smacked a two-run homer as the Cardinals crushed the Reds 15-2 in the rubber match of a weekend series at Great American Ball Park. David Freese and Tony Cruz added solo homers and drove in two runs apiece for the Redbirds, who have won three-of-four since a seven-game skid. Lance Lynn struck out 11 over eight innings of two-run ball as he improved to 13-and-5. The Cards start a four-game series with the Dodgers tonight.
