Cardinals Remain Hot, Top Reds With Nine Runs

Cardinals 9, Reds 7  (20-19)

The Cardinals pushed themselves above .500 for the first time in almost a month with their second straight win over the Reds.  It was another high scoring game, but this time it was without the late inning comeback.  The Cardinals scored three runs in the first inning and never trailed the rest of the way despite the Reds trying to nip at their heels.

Jake Flowers and Ray Blades both hit homeruns for the Cardinals.  Taylor Douthit continued to hit the ball well and he went three for four with three runs.  Blades scored three times and Rogers Hornsby went two for three with a run.

Vic Keen was roughed up but he picked up the win.  He gave up seven runs on twelve hits and three walks with four strikeouts.
