Cardinals beat Reds 7-6 to take 2 of 3 in seriesCINCINNATI (AP) - The St. Louis Cardinals overcame another long delay and Todd Frazier's two homers on Thursday, holding on to beat the Cincinnati Reds 7-6 and take two of three in their season-opening series.
The first pitch was delayed 3 hours, 42 minutes because of rain. The Cardinals then emerged from their two-game hitting slump by knocking Homer Bailey out of the game in the fifth inning. Jhonny Peralta homered to get it going.
St. Louis pulled away with three runs in the seventh, when Matt Holliday's single off the outfield wall was upheld by the first video review of the series.
Lance Lynn gave up Jay Bruce's two-run homer and Frazier's solo shot during five innings.
