Feldman, Duvall Spark Reds Over Cardinals 8-0

Feldman, Duvall Spark Reds Over Cardinals 8-0”

St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Michael Wacha throws during the first inning of a baseball game against the Cincinnati Reds Saturday, April 8, 2017, in St. Louis.

Garrett was able to have command of each of his four pitches while mixing his two- and four-seam fastballs around the strike zone to keep Cardinals hitters off balance.

Garrett progressed through the Reds' minor league ranks following his decision to depart from St. John's University where he was a member of the basketball team. The youthful Reds staff finished the game off with 1 inning of work from Michael Lorenzen for the hold, followed by 2 innings from Raisel Iglesias for the save.

Scott Schebler and Eugenio Suarez homered for the Reds. Adam Duvall (five hits; homer; two RBI; three runs) and Brandon Hamilton (five hits) were solid in that span as well.

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.

PHILADELPHIA - Reigning National League Cy Young Award victor Max Scherzer threw 6 2/3 strong innings in his 2017 debut and Bryce Harper and Daniel Murphy each belted a two-run homer as Washington spoiled Philadelphia's home opener. Suarez scooted home on the error to make it a six-run lead.

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

"And for a kid coming out and making his debut, he threw a good game", Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said.

Diaz, enjoying the first multi-homer game of his career, had four runs batted in for the day and Jedd Gyorko had two as the Cardinals unwrapped an offense that had been scoreless for the last 13 innings before Saturday. Stephenson walked six, one intentionally, and fanned four in 1 2/3 innings.

St. Louis has had a little trouble on offense so far, but Aledmys Diaz took four hits and two doubles into the weekend, while Randall Grichuck had a homer and four RBI in the same span. Diaz broke out on Saturday, blasting two home runs with four RBI and three runs. The speedster improved to 24 for 26 in stolen base attempts for his career against Molina, the most by any baserunner off the eight-time Gold Glove victor. "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". Duvall worked a full count against Martinez, even taking a close inside slider on a 2-2 count for a ball.

It's been more than three years since Bronson Arroyo has started for the Reds. RHP Austin Brice (ulnar nerve inflammation, right elbow) made his first rehab appearance for Pensacola on Friday, striking out two in a 13-pitch inning. Give me St. Louis for the win. Matheny was impressed with Rosenthal's velocity and secondary pitches and Rosenthal could be activated from the 10-day disabled list as early as Monday. They're 8-0 in his last eight starts against Cincinnati and 5-0 in his last five home starts versus the Reds.
