Molina’s homerun helps Cardinals win on opening day

Sports

March 31st, 2014 by Chris Parks

CINCINNATI (AP) – Yadier Molina’s homer broke a seventh-inning tie and drew another round of loud boos while he rounded the bases on Monday, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 1-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.

The Reds were blanked on opening day for the first time since 1953, ending the second-longest streak of scoring in at least one run in season openers in major league history. The Phillies went 62 years without being blanked in an opener from 1911-72.

Adam Wainwright used his refined sinker to finally get the best of the Reds, who have hit him like no other team. Wainwright allowed three hits in seven innings, fanning nine.

St. Louis escaped a threat in the eighth. Trevor Rosenthal retired all three batters in the ninth, finishing a three-hitter for the defending National League champions.

Sports

March 30th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

CINCINNATI (AP) – No waiting for one of the NL Central’s longstanding rivalries to resume. The defending NL champion St. Louis Cardinals and the Cincinnati Reds open the season against each other on Monday for only the second time in the last 20 years. The Cardinals won the season series 11-8 last year and held off the Reds, who had to settle for a wild card. They lost the one-game playoff in Pittsburgh and fired manager Dusty Baker.

The Cardinals are stocked for another title run. The Reds open the season with eight players on the disabled list, including starter Mat Latos, closer Aroldis Chapman and catcher Devin Mesoraco.   Adam Wainwright, who won 19 games and finished second in the NL Cy Young voting last season, faces Cincinnati’s Johnny Cueto.
