Reds' Amir Garrett tosses six scoreless frames in debut

Garrett struck out four, walked two and needed only 78 pitches to record 18 outs. Control has been an issue at times in the minors, so it won't always be this smooth, but the former St. John's basketball player has a promising future on the mound. The youthful Reds staff finished the game off with 1 inning of work from Michael Lorenzen for the hold, followed by 2 innings from Raisel Iglesias for the save. In the bottom of the tenth inning of Game 6 of the 2011 World Series, Scott Feldman relieved Darren Oliver with runners on second and third and one out.

Scott Schebler hit a two-run homer, his second in two games, for the Reds in the eighth.

The Cardinals had been scoreless for their last 13 innings before Aledmys Diaz, in his first career at-bat against 40-year-old Cincinnati righthander Bronson Arroyo, lined his first homer of the season to left field in the first inning Saturday at Busch Stadium.

Miguel Gonzalez (1-0) pitched six innings and allowed two runs on seven hits while striking out six for Chicago.

Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Amir Garrett throws during the first inning of the team's baseball game against the St. Louis Cardinals Friday, April 7, 2017, in St. Louis.

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. The inning started with Billy Hamilton pulling a ball to right that landed in front of Grichuk for what would have been a single for anyone else.

Kyle Freeland allowed one run in six solid innings in his major league debut, leading Colorado past Los Angeles.

"It's a shame to lose a great start like that", St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said.

Zimmermann (1-0), whose 2016 season was hampered by groin and neck injuries, limited the Red Sox to one run on four hits in his longest outing since June 30. "We got a little bit over-aggressive there, but they're the type of time that can exploit that aggressiveness with Molina behind the plate". It left the bases loaded three times. Arroyo, who spent 2 1/2 years out of the major leagues with elbow and shoulder troubles, allowed six earned runs on six hits over four innings, with three strikeouts and three walks. Duvall worked a full count against Martinez, even taking a close inside slider on a 2-2 count for a ball. St. Louis beat him 6-1 that night.

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.

Royals 5, Astros 1: Jason Vargas got his first win in almost two years and Kansas City beat Houston. Martinez is 5-1 with a 2.76 ERA in 16 appearances (five career starts) against Cincinnati.
