St. Louis, MO (SportsNetwork.com) - Matt Holliday smacked a go-ahead double in the sixth inning and Yadier Molina had three hits, including a solo homer to lead the St. Louis Cardinals to a 7-5 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday.
The Cardinals climbed out of a 4-0 hole after 1 1/2 innings, tying the game with a four-run rally in the second inning sparked by Molina's leadoff homer.
Holliday's hit to the right-field wall in the sixth was dropped by Jay Bruce on a tough play, helping Lance Lynn pick up his second win over the Reds this season.
Lynn (2-0) allowed five runs on eight hits in six innings, striking out four and walking none. He also got the victory in a 7-6 decision over Cincinnati on April 3.
The Cardinals have won the first two games of the three-game series and are 4-1 against the Reds this season.
Logan Ondrusek (0-1) replaced starter Homer Bailey to begin the sixth and took the loss. Bailey, who lost to Lynn and the Cardinals on April 3, was knocked around for nine hits and four runs in five innings. He fanned five and walked two.
