ST. LOUIS (AP) — Yadier Molina left the game in the fourth inning with a bruised knee, and the St. Louis Cardinals extended a losing streak to four for the first time this year with a 5-2 defeat to the Cincinnati Reds. The 38-year-old Molina, a nine-time All-Star catcher, and nine-time Gold Glove winner, took a foul tip off the bat of Kyle Farmer off his left knee in the fourth inning. Andrew Knizner pinch hit in the bottom half for Molina, who is batting .277 with seven homers and 27 RBIs.
