CINCINNATI (AP) - Anthony DeSclafani handled the St. Louis Cardinals for the second straight start, striking out a career-high nine, and the Cincinnati Reds turned a big first inning off John Lackey into a 3-2 victory Tuesday night.

DeSclafani (7-7), the most experienced member of Cincinnati's all-rookie rotation, gave up seven hits and two runs in six innings. It was his second straight impressive start over the NL Central leaders.

Last Wednesday in St. Louis, DeSclafani gave up only three hits in seven innings of a 1-0 win. 

Aroldis Chapman fanned two in the ninth - his fastball topping out at 101 mph - for his 23rd save in 24 chances. The left-hander has converted 56 consecutive save opportunities at Great American Ball Park since his last failure in September 2012.

11U Finishes 4th At State...

BURBANK - The Salem 11U Wildcats state run was ended last night after going down to Streator 15-5.  

The Wildcats got behind early as Streator plated 9 runs in the first inning on 10 hits.  Salem battled back to close the lead to 11-5 after 4 innings.  

However, the 'Cats could not overcome the early deficit and the season ended with Salem finishing in 4th place.  

Coach Mike Koehnke and the rest of the staff and players would like to thank all the fans who supported the team to make this a great experience.

CCL Standings Becoming Clearer...

TRENTON - The Trenton Miners wrapped up second place in the Clinton County Baseball League by sweeping the Carlyle Lakers 8-4 and 12-2.  The Miners are 10-2 with a makeup game at Centralia tomorrow night.  A suspended game with Beckemeyer will not be completed since it won't affect the standings.  

    The Germantown Reds are back in the postseason after their 7-6, walk-00ff win over the Centralia Buds.  The Reds ended 8-6 in the league and will have either the No. 3 or 4 seed in the tournament.  Germantown is at present the No. 3 seed but that could change if Centralia downs Trenton tomorrow.  That would tie the Buds and Reds in the final standings but Centralia owns the tiebreaker for the 3rd slot. 

Salem 11U Wildcats Still Alive At State Tournament...

BURBANK - The Salem 11U Wildcats are still alive at the state tournament in Burbank as they went 1-1 over the weekend.  On Saturday morning, the Wildcats fell to Streator 7-5.  Blane Phillips hit a three run homerun to lead the way offensively.  Bryson Quinn added a double and a RBI. Quentin Purcell took the loss on the mound despite a solid outing.  

    Salem then defeated Warren Park in an elimination game 9-6.  Hunter Daniels got the win going 4.2 innings striking out 3 and allowing 4 earned runs.  Jacob Koehnke got the save in relief facing the final four batters with 2 strike outs.  Once again the Wildcats were led at the plate by Blane Phillips who was 3-4 with a 2-run homer and an RBI single.  Carson Parrish was 3-3 with a double and 2 singles, Carter Consolino added 3 singles and scored 2 runs.  Bryson Quinn, Brayden Aaron and Brayden Smith also had big RBIs in the game.  Jackson Syverston walked and scored a run.  

    Salem will get a rematch with Streator today at 5:30.
