Kivlehan, Votto rally Reds past Cards 6-4

ST. LOUIS KEPT SCOOTER GENNETT IN CHECK A DAY AFTER HIS FOUR-HOMER GAME, BUT PATRICK KIVLEHAN HAD A PINCH THREE-RUN SHOT THAT SPARKED THE CINCINNATI REDS TO A 6-4 VICTORY ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT, EXTENDING THE CARDINALS' LONGEST LOSING STREAK IN FOUR YEARS.

THE CARDINALS HAVE DROPPED SIX IN A ROW. THEY LET A 4-1 LEAD SLIP AWAY WHEN KIVLEHAN _ ANOTHER UTILITY PLAYER LIKE GENNETT _ AND JOEY VOTTO HOMERED DURING A FIVE-RUN SEVENTH INNING.

GENNETT BECAME THE FIRST REDS PLAYER TO HOMER FOUR TIMES IN A GAME DURING THE 13-1 WIN A NIGHT EARLIER. HE CONNECTED IN HIS LAST FOUR AT-BATS AND HAD A CHANCE FOR MORE HISTORY ON WEDNESDAY _ NOBODY HAS HOMERED IN FIVE STRAIGHT PLATE APPEARANCES.

USING THE SAME TAN BAT THAT PRODUCED FIVE HITS OVERALL THE PREVIOUS NIGHT, GENNETT GROUNDED INTO A DOUBLE PLAY HIS FIRST TIME UP AGAINST LANCE LYNN, ENDING HIS HOMER STREAK. HE ALSO STRUCK OUT, HIT INTO ANOTHER DOUBLE PLAY AND SINGLED AS PART OF THE REDS' GO-AHEAD RALLY.
