Wacha pitches Cardinals over Reds

Cincinnati, OH (SportsNetwork.com) – Michael Wacha’s strong outing to open his
2015 season led the St. Louis Cardinals to a 4-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds

Wacha (1-0), whose 2014 season ended when he allowed a series-ending home run
to San Francisco’s Travis Ishikawa in the NLCS, only allowed a run on five
hits and a walk with two strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings

Matt Adams’ first hit of the season was a solo home run that put the Cardinals
up for good in the fourth.

Cincinnati starter Johnny Cueto (0-1) was sharp in the Reds’ first loss this
season, allowing two runs — one earned — on four hits and a walk with four
strikeouts in seven innings.

The Reds’ only run of the game came on Todd Frazier’s first-inning home run.
