The Cincinnati Reds had a two-game winning streak snapped last night in a loss to the St. Louis Cardinals, 5-1. The Reds were on the board first on a Brandon Phillips sac-fly. Bronson Arroyo had a perfect game through five innings, but the Cardinals ended that in the sixth when Matt Adams hit a two-run homer and Carlos Beltran hit an RBI single to give St. Louis a three run lead. The Reds fall to 5-3 and will wrap up their series in St. Louis today. Reds hurler Homer Bailey will battle Jake Westbrook.
