Cardinals Beat Rain Delay, Reds
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Kyle McClellan worked six-plus innings after the St. Louis Cardinals guessed correctly and used a substitute starter before a lengthy rain delay in a 4-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Friday night.

Albert Pujols had two RBIs and Ryan Theriot had three hits and scored twice for the Cardinals against a collection of relievers for the Reds, who burned ace Edinson Volquez after pre-game warmups followed by a delay of 2 hours and 10 minutes and ended up with Matt Maloney (0-1) as a substitute starter.

St. Louis stand-in starter Miguel Batista opened with a four-pitch walk to Drew Stubbs and threw two more pitches to Brandon Phillips before a fierce storm prompted tornado warning sirens at least three times brought the game to a halt.
