Garrett shines as Reds blank Cardinals


He threw three pitches for strikes with consistency and needed just 78 pitches to obtain his 18 outs.

The 6-foot-5 Garrett, a four-star basketball recruit out of high school who played two years at St. John's before switching to baseball, looked poised throughout his outing. Michael Lorenzen sailed through the seventh and Raisel Iglesias retired six of the seven men he faced, working around a two-out walk in the ninth to Matt Carpenter for his second save.

By the way Michael Wacha's season finished a year ago _ when he was battling a second stress reaction in his right shoulder _ you likely wouldn't recall that he finished on a winning streak of five games, especially since he wound up only 7-7 with a unsightly 5.09 earned run average.

Third baseman Jhonny Peralta bobbled Eugenio Suarez's potential double-play ball behind the bag and then his throw trying for a forceout at second went into right field, scoring Joey Votto.

Scott Schebler hit a two-run homer, his second in two games, for the Reds in the eighth.

There were no odd plays at Busch Stadium, a day after a pitch that bounced got stuck to Cardinal catcher Yadier Molina's chest protector. His 2006 campaign ended with him posting career bests in ERA (3.24) and innings pitched (240 2 /3 innings) while going 14-11 and earning his only All-Star selection.


Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Amir Garrett throws during the first inning of the team's baseball game against the St. Louis Cardinals Friday, April 7, 2017, in St. Louis. Suarez scooted home on the error to make it a six-run lead.

Jose Peraza (from the Todd Frazier trade) and former Milwaukee Brewer are at second base.

Votto's double in the sixth scored Billy Hamilton.

"It's a shame to lose a great start like that", Mike Matheny said. It left the bases loaded three times.

Kyle Freeland allowed one run in six solid innings in his major league debut, leading Colorado past Los Angeles. "We got a little bit over-aggressive there, but they're the type of time that can exploit that aggressiveness with Molina behind the plate". Matheny was impressed with Rosenthal's velocity and secondary pitches and Rosenthal could be activated from the 10-day disabled list as early as Monday. RHP Austin Brice (ulnar nerve inflammation, right elbow) is scheduled to make his first rehab appearance Friday at Pensacola. On Saturday, the Cardinals struck back with a 10-4 blowout. Give me St. Louis for the win. They're 8-0 in his last eight starts against Cincinnati and 5-0 in his last five home starts versus the Reds. Diaz lined a solo shot in the first off losing pitcher Bronson Arroyo (0-1) and then touched Arroyo for a three-run blast in the fourth to give St. Louis a 6-1 lead.
