Randal Grichuk and Jedd Gyorko each homered and drove in three runs, leading the St. Louis Cardinals over the Cincinnati Reds 8-2 on Monday.
Brandon Finnegan, pitching for the first time since going on the DL with a shoulder injury in April, left Monday's game at St. Louis with a left triceps strain.
NL All-Star voting coming down to the wire
With four days of balloting remaining, Cubs 3B Kris Bryant, Marlins OF Marcell Ozuna, Reds SS Zack Cozart and Nationals 1B Ryan Zimmerman find themselves in tight races at their respective positions. Each league's starters will be announced on the Esurance All-Star Selection Show on Sunday, July 2 at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN.
Zack Cozart hit .347 in the first two months of the season, third-best in the majors behind Ryan Zimmerman and Buster Posey. Billy Hamilton's 15 games with three or more steals since his debut in 2013 easily leads MLB.
Scooter Gennett homered and got four hits, and the Cincinnati Reds scored five times in the first inning off Tanner Roark en route to a 6-2 victory over the Washington Nationals on Sunday.
Michael Taylor homered twice among his four hits, Trea Turner finished 5-for-5 with a walk and the Washington Nationals beat the Cincinnati Reds 18-3 on Saturday.
The Reds have perhaps the single flashiest defender in Billy Hamilton, but he isn't doing it alone. In particular, first baseman Joey Votto has bounced back from a bizarre down year defensively.
There was a day or two a couple weeks ago when Cozart led the NL in WAR. Following a short stay on the DL, the shortstop should become an interesting trade target as the deadline approaches.

Bryce Harper chose a good time for his first hit. The Nats slugger's 10th inning single - his only knock of the night - gave his team a 6-5 win over the Reds. The hit, combined with five scoreless innings from the beleaguered Washington bullpen, helped the Nationals keep their 9.5-game cushion over second-place Atlanta. It's Harper's third walk-off hit this season, tied for most in MLB.

Another short-ish night for Nats hurler Stephen Strasburg, who exits after allowing the Reds five runs on eight hits in five frames. After going six-plus innings in 13 of his first 14 starts this year, Strasburg has failed to go six in each of his last three outings.
Reds add Castillo, option Garrett
The Reds have recalled RHP Luis Castillo from Double-A Pensacola to make his major league debut against the Nationals on Friday night. LHP Amir Garrett has been optioned to Triple-A Louisville to open up a roster spot.

The Reds' rotation makeover gets underway, with Luis Castillo (No. 94 on Keith Law's Top 100 prospects) going tonight and Homer Bailey coming off the DL tomorrow. With their MLB-worst 6.12 ERA from the rotation, there's nowhere to go but up.
Schebler, Votto create power pair in Cincy
Reds RF Scott Schebler tied 1B Joey Votto for the team lead in home runs by hitting his 20th during Wednesday's 8-3 loss to the Rays. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, it's only the third time in franchise history that Cincinnati has two players with 20 long balls through the first 75 games of a season. It also happened in 1953 (Ted Kluszewski and Gus Bell) and 1970 (Tony Perez and Johnny Bench).
Hunter Greene offers incredible upside on the mound and a rare combination of youth and athleticism in a pitcher with his arm strength.
Tampa Bay left fielder Mallex Smith rushed in to tag out speedy Billy Hamilton after a lengthy rundown, highlighting the Rays' 8-3 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday.
