ST. LOUIS (AP) - Aledmys Diaz hit two home runs, Michael Wacha allowed one run over six innings and St. Louis beat Cincinnati to spoil Bronson Arroyo's return to the majors.
Garrett went 6 innings in his debut on Friday night, throwing just 78 pitches. The 6-foot-5 lefty played two seasons of hoops for St. John's while already a Reds minor leaguer. He connected for a two-out, three-run drive in the fourth after Wacha extended the inning with his 14th hit in 143 career at-bats.
Eugenio Suarez doubled home a run for the Reds in the fourth while Scott Schebler belted a two-run homer in the eighth, his second in as many games.
Zack Cozart tripled in a run in the fifth, and the Reds chased Martinez in the sixth as the Cardinals made three errors, including two on one play by third baseman Jhonny Peralta.
There were no unusual plays at Busch Stadium, a day after a pitch that bounced got stuck to Cardinal catcher Yadier Molina's chest protector. The Cardinals went on to win that game in the 11th inning.

After walking Dexter Fowler to start the game, Garrett mowed down the next seven hitters with a good mix of fastballs, sliders and changeups. "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".
