Ozuna comes alive with two homers as Cardinals beat Reds

That pep in his step and thrill of a place he likened to playing at home in the Dominican Republic led Ozuna to predict that he was going to hit a home run Saturday and then do himself one better by hitting two on Sunday. The left fielder put the Cardinals ahead with a three-run homer in the first inning and then helped muscle them to a 9-5 victory against Cincinnati. The win split the Mexico Series between them and the host Reds and sent the Cardinals back to the States with their sixth win in seven games.

Home runs from Ozuna and O’Neill in the first inning pushed the Cardinals to a 4-0 lead that vanished in the fifth.
