The St. Louis Cardinals lost for the third time in four days to the Cincinnati Reds, falling 6-2 in the finale.

Tony Cingrani stifled the Cards and also flashed the wood with a bunt single, a steal and scored the first run of the game. Cincinnati scored a run in six consecutive frames including home runs by Todd Frazier, Shin-Soo Choo and Jay Bruce.

St. Louis goes into their final series with first-place Pittsburgh 1.5 games behind the Pirates, and 1.5 games in front of the Reds. Joe Kelly and AJ Burnett square off in the series-opening game on the Zimmer Sports Network at 6:20.
