Craig's slam leads Cards to win over Reds

(AP) -

    

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Allen Craig hit his first career grand slam with two out in the seventh inning, helping the St. Louis Cardinals rally for an 8-6 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night.

    

Matt Holliday also had a long three-run homer as St. Louis moved into sole possession of first place in the NL Central for the first time since July 29. The Cardinals lead idle Pittsburgh by a half-game and Cincinnati by 3½ games in the top-heavy division.

    

Rookie Carlos Martinez (1-1) pitched two innings for his first major league win and Edward Mujica worked a perfect ninth for his 35th save.

    

Zack Cozart had two hits and three RBIs for the Reds, who blew leads of 4-0 and 5-3. Jay Bruce hit his 25th homer in the eighth.
