Reds Spoil Cardinals Home Opener

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Brandon Phillips kick-started a nine-run ninth inning with a tie-breaking bloop double and Shin-Soo Choo made amends for two botched fly balls with a three-run double, and the Cincinnati Reds spoiled the St. Louis Cardinals' home opener with a 13-4 victory yesterday.

Mitchell Boggs (0-1), the stand-in closer for St. Louis, yielded six runs while getting only one out and the Cardinals needed four more pitchers to get out of the inning. Only a few thousand fans remained of the largest regular-season crowd of 47,375 for the bottom of the ninth in 8-year-old Busch Stadium history.

The Cardinals held a tribute for Stan Musial before the game.
