Cardinals 3, Reds 2

ST. LOUIS — Matt Carpenter and Jhonny Peralta homered to back up a dominant start by Jaime Garcia, lifting the Cardinals. Carpenter's homer in the first inning was his second leadoff home run of the season and 11th of his career. It was also Carpenter's second career homer against Reds starter Anthony DeScalfani. Peralta's solo homer in fourth was the 200th of his career. Peralta is hitting .345 in August. Garcia needed just 85 pitches to get through 8-plus innings and 19 of his 24 outs were ground balls or strikeouts.
