Matt Holliday and Lance Berkman swatted back-to-back homers in the first inning and the Cardinals went on to trounce the Reds, 8-1. Holliday added a three-run jack in the fifth inning to back a solid start from Jaime [[ HIGH-may ]] Garcia. Garcia tossed six frames of two-hit, one-run ball to run his record to 8-and-3 on the year. Edinson Volquez took it on the chin for Cincinnati, allowing seven runs, six earned, on seven hits in five-and-a-third innings. Scott Rolen drove in the Reds' lone run on a fourth-inning groundout. The finale of the three-game series is tonight with Jake Westbrook opposing Bronson Arroyo.
