Recap

Cardinals 7, Reds 1: Visiting St. Louis blasted three first-inning homers off Homer Bailey, winning for the fourth time in five games.

Matt Holliday, David Freese and Yadier Molina all took Bailey deep in the first, staking the Cardinals to a 4-0 lead before Jake Westbrook took the mound for St. Louis.
