Reds Cardinals Baseball

St. Louis Cardinals’ Harrison Bader, right, celebrates as he is doused by teammate Kolten Wong as Tyler O’Neill and Matt Carpenter watch after Bader hit a single to defeat the Cincinnati Reds 4-3 in the first game of a doubleheader Sunday in St. Louis.

ST. LOUIS — Nick Senzel and Phillip Ervin hit solo home runs, Luis Castillo pitched six effective innings and the Cincinnati Reds beat the St. Louis Cardinals 5-3 Sunday night to end a four-game losing streak and salvage a split of their doubleheader.

With the 4-3 win in the first game and the Chicago Cubs’ 4-0 loss to Milwaukee, the Cardinals gained a half game in the NL Central to increase their division lead to three games. St. Louis has only lost two of its past 11 games and is 12-3 in its past 15.
