Arroyo returns to Reds, Diaz homers twice

The Cardinals went on to win that game in the 11th inning. "I was able to get something to hit and put the barrel on it".

The Cardinals scored twice in the first inning with Diaz's first homer of the season and a bloop double down the right-field line from catcher Yadier Molina.

DETROIT - Rookie JaCoby Jones walked on a 3-2 pitch with the bases loaded in the eighth inning to force in the go-ahead run that made Detroit's home opener a success.

Wacha pitched six fine innings and the Cardinals, behind two home runs from Aledmys Diaz, beat the Cincinnati Reds 10-4 Saturday to spoil Bronson Arroyo's return to the majors.

But doubles by Joey Votto and Eugenio Suarez provided a run for the Reds in the fourth as they cut the Cardinals' lead to 2-1. His 2010 campaign featured him earning a career high in wins (17) and WHIP (1.14) in 33 starts that spanned 215 2/3 innings.

Michael Wacha, 6-1 in his career against the Reds, had an easy five-pitch first inning but had a bit more trouble in the second. Schebler connected off Kevin Siegrist. "Leake was terrific. But we just couldn't get anything going offensively".

Zimmermann (1-0) labored early but allowed only one run and four hits.

Dietrich opened Miami's scoring off Wheeler with a two-run triple in the second inning. St. Louis drew a dozen walks from four pitchers but only cashed four of them into runs and stranded a dozen runners. The speedster improved to 24 for 26 in stolen base attempts for his career against Molina, the most by any baserunner off the eight-time Gold Glove victor. His third hit, a liner to left center, plated Jose Peraza to start a four-run sixth that decided the game. Duvall worked a full count against Martinez, even taking a close inside slider on a 2-2 count for a ball. St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said Friday that RHP Trevor Rosenthal (right lat strain), who was scheduled to throw another bullpen session this weekend, might instead throw a simulated game on Saturday and then rejoin the team on its upcoming road trip. RHP Austin Brice (ulnar nerve inflammation, right elbow) made his first rehab appearance for Pensacola on Friday, striking out two in a 13-pitch inning.

The St. Louis Cardinals just finished a hard-fought series against the Chicago Cubs, losing two of three.

The 40-year-old Arroyo will take the mound today for the Reds in his first big-league action since 2014, joining an uncertain Cincinnati rotation that also includes Scott Feldman and Brandon Finnegan along with a variety of young arms.

Cardinals: RHP Michael Wacha has won his past five decisions going back to June 22.

Cincinnati will turn to Scott Feldman (0-1, 5.79 ERA) to try to quell St. Louis' offense.
