Pujols' single sends Cardinals over Reds 6-3

CINCINNATI (AP) - Albert Pujols hit a tiebreaking single in the seventh inning and Matt Holliday followed with a two-run double, sending the St. Louis Cardinals to a 6-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday night.

Adam Wainwright (1-0) gave up only three hits in seven innings, including Orlando Cabrera's two-run homer in the bottom of the sixth that tied it at 2. Ryan Franklin pitched the ninth for his first save.

The Cardinals started their winning rally off Daniel Ray Herrera (0-1). Pujols - 4 for 5 with two homers on opening day - singled off Logan Ondrusek for the lead. Holliday followed with a double off the base of the wall in center.
