A pitching duel it wasn’t as neither starter made it to the 5th inning. But the Cardinals got the best of the Reds in the first game of a day-night doubleheader as St. Louis topped Cincinnati 5-4 behind two long home runs from Paul Goldschmidt. The loss, at least temporarily, drops the Reds out of a playoff spot and behind the San Diego Padres in the race for the second wild card spot.
