Found April 17, 2012 on Redlegs Review:
The Cincinnati Reds started their second series of the season against the Cardinals tonight, this time in St. Louis. The Reds headed into the game hoping to recover from losing two out of three at home against the defending World Series chapmions and improving to one game under .500 and coming within 2 games of first place. Johnny Cueto and Kyle Lohse both pitched amazing games. Cueto only giving up 1 run in the first inning and Lohse going scoreless through 7, leaving the Cardinals with a one run lead heading into the 8th inning.

The Reds comeback was momentarily cut short when Brandon Phillips hit into a double play. The Reds luck finally turned around after rookie Short Stop Zach Cozart finally put a run on the board driving a single into centerfield ...
