Heisey's pinch-hit single in the ninth inning scored Ryan Ludwick to lift the Reds to a 1-0 win over the St. Louis Cardinals in a rain-delayed game that was dominated until the end by good pitching. St. Louis starter Michael Wacha pitched 6 2/3 scoreless innings while striking out seven, walking one, and allowing three hits. Kolten Wong, Matt Carpenter, and Allen Craig collected a base hit each, the only three hits for St. Louis on the night. The Cards and Reds play at 11:00 this morning and you can hear it on KSMO.
