September 22nd, 2015 by Chris Parks

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Rookie Stephen Piscotty doubled in the go-ahead run in a two-run eighth inning and the St. Louis Cardinals turned it on late for a 2-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday.

Rookie Tommy Pham tripled off J.J. Hoover (8-2) to open the eighth and Jhonny Peralta’s one-out single tied it ahead of Piscotty’s drive off the wall in left-center.

Johnathon Broxton (3-5) allowed one hit the eighth and Trevor Rosenthal earned his 47th save in 49 chances to match the franchise record.

The Cardinals had a four-game NL Central lead over Pittsburgh before the opener of their final home stand. They’re a major league-best 51-24 at home and have the best overall record, too, at 94-56.
