Reds beat Cardinals 5-4 for series sweep
CINCINNATI (AP) - Joey Votto hit a two-run double and David Ross
had a two-run homer to help the Cincinnati Reds beat the St. Louis
Cardinals 5-4 this afternoon.
The win capped the Reds' first three-game sweep of the Cardinals
in Cincinnati in nine years.
The Cardinals' loss was their seventh straight, ending their
first winless road trip of at least seven games since May 1972.
Reds starter Aaron Harang (15-4) gave up three hits and three
sacrifice flies in seven innings. David Weathers became the ninth
Cincinnati closer to reach the 30-save mark.
