Garcia gets a win, Cardinals beat Reds

CINCINNATI — Left-hander Jaime Garcia got his first victory in more than a year on Saturday night, another step in his comeback from shoulder surgery, and Yadier Molina homered again in the city where he's always booed, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 6-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.

The Cardinals evened their series at a game apiece. St. Louis has won nine of the last 10 series between the NL Central rivals.

Garcia (1-0) gave up six hits and a pair of runs in 5 2-3 innings, fanning seven and retiring 12 batters in a row over one span.

Ryan Ludwick homered in the ninth off Jason Motte. Trevor Rosenthal came on with two outs and fanned Todd Frazier with two runners aboard for his 15th save in 17 chances.

Molina hit a solo shot off left-hander Tony Cingrani (2-4).
