Cardinals fall short
Photos
Reds 5, Cardinals 3
Todd Wellemeyer allowed four runs, three earned, on five hits in five innings. (AP)
The Cardinals got off to a quick start, as Albert Pujols hit an RBI double to put them ahead in the first inning. After that, however, offense was hard to come by for most St. Louis hitters, except for Colby Rasmus who went 3-for-4 and fell a triple short of the cycle. Todd Wellemeyer lost for the first time in three starts.
