Garcia and Beltran Team Up, Cardinals Beat Reds
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Jaime Garcia pitched seven effective innings and hit a two-run triple, Carlos Beltran homered again and the St. Louis Cardinals extended their winning streak to a season-high four games Wednesday night with an 11-1 rout of the slumping Cincinnati Reds.

Garcia (2-0) allowed one run on seven hits and three walks. He was aided by four double plays and helped his cause with a triple off the wall in center field in the sixth that made it 7-1 and chased Mat Latos (0-2).

The Reds have dropped five of the first six games on their 10-game road trip and are already five games in back of the Cardinals in the NL Central.
