Sports Reds-Indians series finale postponed by rain, makeup Aug. 9
O'Neill 2 HRs as Flaherty, Cards hand Reds 7th straight loss
ST. LOUIS — Tyler O’Neill homered twice and Jack Flaherty tossed seven sharp innings as the St. Louis Cardinals beat Cincinnati 5-2 Sunday, the Reds' seventh straight loss. O’Neill, who came off the injured list on Friday after missing 13 games with a right groin strain, hit solo home runs in the second and fifth innings. O’Neill had been 0 for 4 since being activated until breaking loose. The two-homer game was the second of his career — he connected for pair of two-run homers in a 7-0 win over Pittsburgh on June 15, 2019. He said the short stint on the injury list helped him regain his confidence.
CLEVELAND — The three-game series finale between the Cincinnati Reds and Cleveland Indians set for Sunday has been postponed by rain and re-scheduled for Aug. 9.
A wet forecast on Mother’s Day forced the postponement about three hours before the scheduled first pitch at Progressive Field.
Ohio's baseball teams split the first two games in the series. Cincinnati's Wade Miley pitched the season's fourth no-hitter on Friday night, a 3-0 win, and the Indians bounced back Saturday with a 9-2 pounding of the Reds.
The Reds will play on Monday in Pittsburgh.
The Indians, who have won 10 of 13, open a two-game series Tuesday at home against the Chicago Cubs. Cleveland ace Shane Bieber is expected to start.
