Garrett dazzles in debut, Reds beat Cardinals 2-0

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.

The Yankees had taken a 5-1 lead thanks to early two-run homers from Matt Holliday and Gary Sanchez off Ubaldo Jimenez.

Police arrested a man in Marsta, a northern Stockholm suburb close to the city's worldwide airport, as a possible suspect. Another witness told the newspaper that the out-of-control truck ran over at least two people.

Hamilton stole second base on the top of the sixth inning.

Billy Hamilton got aboard and scored in the span of a minute.

Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said his team needs to find some consistency.

Gordon's double off reliever Jandel Gustave brought home Brandon Moss and Alcides Escobar and followed a bases-loaded passed ball by Astros catcher Evan Gattis that allowed Salvador Perez to score. Stephenson walked six, one intentionally, and fanned four in 1 2/3 innings.

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".

CHICAGO - Phil Hughes was sharp through six innings in his first start in almost a year, Miguel Sano doubled in the tie-breaking run in sixth and the Minnesota defeated Chicago.

Reds: C Devin Mesoraco (right hip) was scheduled to catch seven innings for Double-A Pensacola on Saturday. It could have cinched a series win Saturday, but simply couldn't keep the Cardinals' offense in check, allowing a whopping 22 baserunners. Arroyo is 8-15 with a 4.69 ERA in his career against St. Louis. He allowed 2 hits and walked 2 batters, but finished the game with 4 strikeouts and turned over a 1-0 lead to his bullpen.
