CINCINNATI (AP) - First baseman Allen Craig's throwing error in the seventh inning helped the Cincinnati Reds rally for their fourth straight win, 5-3 over the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday night.

Craig fielded Ryan Hanigan's slow grounder with the bases loaded and threw wildly to first base, allowing two runs to score for a 3-2 lead off Adam Wainwright (7-9). Zack Cozart's sacrifice fly completed a three-run rally.

Todd Frazier had a solo homer off Wainwright, who allowed only two hits over the first six innings before letting it slip away.

Alfredo Simon (1-1) escaped a bases-loaded threat in the seventh by striking out Matt Holliday. Aroldis Chapman fanned three in the ninth for his 12th save in 16 chances.

The game drew 40,217 fans, Cincinnati's seventh sellout of the season.
