Latos outduels Wainwright as Reds top Cardinals

Monday, April 29, 2013 | 11:06 p.m. CDT
St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright gave up just five hits and two runs in seven innings but was out-dueled by the Cincinnati's Mat Latos in a 2-1 loss Monday in St. Louis.

ST. LOUIS — Mat Latos outpitched Adam Wainwright, extending his scoreless innings streak to 17, and the Cincinnati Reds got an RBI apiece from Joey Votto and Xavier Paul in a 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday night.

Aroldis Chapman worked a perfect ninth for his sixth save in six chances, finishing off only the third road victory in 11 games for the Reds and handing St. Louis its third straight loss.

Yadier Molina had three of the Cardinals' seven hits, including an RBI double off Jonathan Broxton that produced their first run in 17 innings. The Cardinals stranded 10 runners.

Wainwright (4-2) trailed just six pitches in after Shin-soo Choo doubled on his first offering, advanced on a sacrifice and scored on Votto's single. Over his final six innings, the right-hander gave up three hits and one run on Paul's broken-bat forceout grounder in the fourth set up by hits from Brandon Phillips and Todd Frazier.

Wainwright walked two, one intentionally, after issuing just one in 37 1/3 innings his first five starts.

Latos (2-0) worked around five hits and three walks in his sixth quality start in as many outings this season. The Reds have scored just four runs in his last three appearances.

The Cardinals, who entered with a major league-leading .355 average with runners in scoring position, had two base runners in an inning four times against Latos. Allen Craig, who came in 7 for 11 with runners in scoring position and two outs, failed twice in that situation with forceouts to end the third and fifth innings.
