Ludwick's HR Sends Reds over Cards 3-2 in 10th
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Ryan Ludwick homered in the 10th inning and the Cincinnati Reds beat the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2 on Saturday for their fifth straight win.

Cincinnati's surge has moved it back into first place in the NL Central. The Reds have matched their season high at 11 games over .500.

Ludwick, a former Cardinal, got two strikes to start his at-bat against Victor Marte (2-2), fouled off three pitches, then worked the count full. He connected for his 13th homer, flinging his helmet away before jumping into the pile of teammates at home.

Yadier Molina homered for St. Louis, which left the bases full in the eighth.

Sam LeCure (3-2) pitched the 10th to get the win.
