Reds-Cardinals Preview

(AP) -- A number of St. Louis batters continued their impressive starts in the Cardinals' third straight victory.

The Cincinnati Reds' struggling offense is hoping to wake up behind Homer Bailey in his season debut Saturday at Busch Stadium.

St. Louis, which took two out of three in Cincinnati last week, won 6-1 Friday. Yadier Molina put the Cardinals (6-3) ahead with a three-run double in the seventh inning. Scoring on that play were Jhonny Peralta and Matt Holliday, who have both hit safely in all nine games. They're the first teammates to do so since the New York Yankees' Derek Jeter and Robinson Cano opened with 11 and 10-game hitting streaks in 2010.
