Reds Rally to Beat Cardinals
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Miguel Cairo hit a two-out, two-run, go-ahead single in the eighth inning to lift the Cincinnati Reds to a 5-3 victory Saturday over St. Louis Cardinals.

The slumping Reds had lost seven of nine games before picking up the victory that snapped a three-game St. Louis winning streak.

A throwing error by Cardinals third baseman David Freese led to three unearned runs in the eighth and Miguel Batista (1-1) and two other St. Louis relievers could not pitch around it.

Former Cardinals closer Ryan Franklin gave up a two-run single to left field by Cairo.

Aroldis Chapman (1-0) got two outs in the seventh and Francisco Cordero pitched the ninth for his third save and No. 293 for his career, tying him with Jason Isringhausen for 22nd all-time.
