Reds complete sweep of Cardinals

JOEY VOTTO HAD A TWO-RUN HOMER AMONG HIS FOUR HITS, ADAM DUVALL HAD THREE HITS OFF MIKE LEAKE AND THE REDS BEAT THE ST. LOUIS CARDINALS 5-2 ON THURSDAY TO COMPLETE A FOUR-GAME SWEEP.

THE REDS HADN'T SWEPT THE CARDINALS IN FOUR GAMES SINCE 2003 IN CINCINNATI, DURING THE FIRST SEASON AT GREAT AMERICAN BALL PARK. ST. LOUIS HAS LOST SEVEN IN A ROW OVERALL FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 2013.

SCOTT FELDMAN (5-4) LIMITED THE CARDINALS' SLUMPING LINEUP TO FOUR SINGLES IN SEVEN SHUTOUT INNINGS. MATT CARPENTER HIT A TWO-RUN HOMER IN THE EIGHTH OFF AUSTIN BRICE. RAISEL IGLESIAS GOT HIS 12TH SAVE.

THE REDS TRADED LEAKE (5-5) TO THE GIANTS FOR DUVALL IN 2015, AND THE RIGHT-HANDER SIGNED WITH THE CARDINALS AFTER THAT SEASON. LEAKE HAS YET TO BEAT HIS FORMER TEAM, GOING 0-4 IN SEVEN STARTS WITH A 4.79 ERA.
