But on Saturday in St. Louis, the 40-year-old right-hander will make his first big league start since 2014.

Garrett was able to have command of each of his four pitches while mixing his two- and four-seam fastballs around the strike zone to keep Cardinals hitters off balance. The 6-foot-5 lefty played two seasons of hoops for St. John's while already a Reds minor leaguer.

St. Louis Cardinals' Aledmys Diaz (36) is congratulated by teammates Matt Carpenter (13), Dexter Fowler (25) and Michael Wacha after hitting a three-run home run during the fourth inning of a baseball game against the Cincinnati Reds Saturday, April 8, 2017, in St. Louis. Both Adam Wainwright and Lance Lynn reached the five innings to qualify for wins in their starts, giving up two runs apiece-but the Cardinals lost both games.

Eugenio Suarez doubled home a run for the Reds in the fourth while Scott Schebler belted a two-run homer in the eighth, his second in as many games. The Reds rotation isn't great right now as their best pitcher, Anthony Desclafani is on the disabled list, and I'm just going to assume Homer Bailey is there as well.

The Cardinals scored twice in the first inning with Diaz's first homer of the season and a bloop double down the right-field line from catcher Yadier Molina.

DETROIT (AP) - Jordan Zimmermann pitched six solid innings, and Jose Iglesias and James McCann homered in Detroit's victory ovr Boston.

PHILADELPHIA - Reigning National League Cy Young Award victor Max Scherzer threw 6 2/3 strong innings in his 2017 debut and Bryce Harper and Daniel Murphy each belted a two-run homer as Washington spoiled Philadelphia's home opener.

The report also claims that my "post-All-Star Game" timeline could be nonsense, and that a deal could be done as early as March. All this comes after Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria expressed interest in selling the team late previous year .


Meanwhile, the Cardinals are 1-4 in their last five game threes of a series, and 4-1 in Martinez's last five home starts.

Here's Cardinals manager Mike Matheny on the efforts of Wacha and Diaz in today's win. "Leake was terrific. But we just couldn't get anything going offensively".

Leake pitched well, scattering six hits while striking out six and walking one.

St. Louis has stumbled a little bit coming out of the gate, as they should be handling the Reds easily.

Scott Feldman tossed six scoreless innings in the Reds' defeat of the Cardinals on Sunday. Arroyo simply missed his spots too often and without a power fastball just isn't equipped to get away with pitches over the plate's heart.

Reds: Kevin Mesoraco (right hip surgical recovery) was not to have a day off Sunday in his injury rehabilitation assignment at Double-A Pensacola, then catch nine innings Monday.

Cardinals: RHP Trevor Rosenthal (right lat strain) felt good after a throwing session and could either pitch in a simulated game or go on a rehab assignment soon. St. Louis beat him 6-1 that night. Martinez is 5-1 with a 2.76 ERA in 16 appearances (five career starts) against Cincinnati.
