Jhonny Peralta’s 10th-inning single, his third hit of the game, drove in the winning run to give the St. Louis Cardinals a 6-5 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night.n Jay Bruce homered, doubled and knocked in four runs for the Reds, giving him nine RBIs in four games. Brandon Phillips returned from left thumb surgery wearing a brace and was 0 for 4 with a walk.
