St. Louis Cardinals

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jesse Winker hit a tiebreaking home run off Alex Reyes in the ninth inning for his second three-homer game this season, and the Cincinnati Reds completed their first four-game sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals in 21 years with an 8-7 victory.

Winker had six RBIs. He has 17 homers, tied for the NL lead.

Eugenio Suárez added a two-run double for the Reds, who led 7-0 by the third inning en route to their first four-game sweep at St. Louis since May 4-7, 1990.

The Cardinals have lost five straight for the first time since Aug. 3-7, 2018.
