Hit Batter, Walk, Wild Pitch Lifts Reds Over Cards

ST. LOUIS (AP)- Andrew Miller loaded the bases with a hit batter, followed with a tying four-pitch walk, then threw a wild pitch that put Cincinnati ahead in a three-run seventh inning as the Reds kept up their slim playoff hopes with a 10-5 win over the St. Louis Cardinals.

St. Louis, second in the NL Central, dropped four games behind the division-leading Chicago Cubs with two weeks left.

The fourth-place Reds are 20-26 and also trail Milwaukee.

The Cardinals led 5-3 before Nick Castellanos’ RBI single in the sixth off Alex Reyes.
