St. Louis Cardinals
The Reds (50-38) completed their first series of the second half of the season by sweeping the division rival Cardinals (46-43) with a 4-2 win on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball. The Pirates suffered a 4 to 1 loss against the Brewers in Milwaukee today, allowing the Reds to grasp sole possession of first place in the National League Central.
Homer Bailey got only his second at home win of the season and improved to an 8-6 record and a 3.93 ERA. The key to today's game were two out hits. Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips drove in a pair of RBI's with two outs in the 3rd and the unlikely hero of the game Scott Rolen had the game winning hit with a two out, two RBI single in the bottom of the 8th.

Of all the people you might have thought would take Joey Votto’s roster spot while he’s on the DL with that arthroscopic knee surgery, I bet you didn’t consider a right-handed pitcher.
