CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Todd Frazier hit a three-run homer off Shelby Miller, who had won his last six decisions, and Devin Mesoraco added a solo shot as the Cincinnati Reds beat the St. Austin Seferian-Jenkins Jersey . Louis Cardinals 5-3 on Friday night and tightened the top of the NL Central. The Reds moved within three games of the second-place Cardinals, who have won seven of their last nine games while staying right behind the division-leading Brewers. Cincinnati is 3-4 against St. Louis this season and trying to end a longstanding trend this weekend. The Reds have lost nine of their last 10 series against the Cardinals. Miller (6-3) lost his first two starts before winning six straight decisions, the best such streak of his career. He allowed five runs in five innings, including Fraziers ninth homer in the third inning. Homer Bailey (4-3) escaped numerous threats during his six innings. Aroldis Chapman gave up a hit in the ninth while getting his fourth save in five chances, with his fastball topping out at 102 mph. Bailey was coming off his worst start of the season. He lasted only 3 2-3 innings and gave up a season-high six runs during a 12-1 loss at Philadelphia on Saturday. The right-hander is only 6-10 career against St. Louis, by far his most losses against any team. He gave up eight hits and three runs, including Allen Craigs two-run single in the fourth. Jhonny Peralta drove in another by hitting into a fielders choice in the sixth. Bailey avoided further damage by picking Peralta off second base to end the inning with pinch-hitter Jon Jay batting. The Reds had right fielder Jay Bruce back in the starting lineup. He hadnt played since surgery on May 5 to repair torn cartilage in his left knee. Cincinnati is still missing first baseman Joey Votto, on the disabled list with a strained muscle above his left knee. Bruce doubled and scored on Brayan Penas sacrifice fly in the fourth inning for a 4-2 lead. Bruce also struck out twice and grounded out with two runners aboard to end the seventh. Pena played first base and made a saving defensive play to open the eighth. He dived to the line to get Matt Hollidays leadoff grounder and, while still on his chest, flipped the ball to Jonathan Broxton covering the base to get the out. Reds leadoff hitter Billy Hamilton walked, reached on a fielders choice and stole a pair of bases without drawing a throw on either one, giving him 18 this season. NOTES: A pair of lefties will start the second game of the series. Jaime Garcia is 9-2 career against the Reds, his most wins against any team. Hell face Tony Cingrani (2-3). ... The Cardinals sold the contract of OF Joey Butler to the Orix Buffaloes in Japan. The Cardinals had outright release waivers on Butler, who was at Triple-A Memphis. ... The Reds revamped their bench for the series, calling up OF Donald Lutz from Triple-A Louisville and sending INF Neftali Soto back down. ... RHP Mat Latos is expected to begin a rehab stint on Sunday with Louisville. He hasnt pitched this season because of torn knee cartilage and a strained right forearm.

It was hard for Luck to pull off another comeback, or even get into the end zone, while standing on the sideline. Rivers threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to rookie Keenan Allen and Nick Novak kicked four field goals to give the Chargers a 19-9 victory against the Colts on Monday night. "I wasnt sure who the Colts were playing this week all the ads I saw," Rivers said, noting that all the pregame buzz surrounded the Colts (4-2), not the Bolts (3-3). Rivers expertly guided a balanced offence on three scoring drives of at least 74 yards while rebounding from a three-interception performance in a dismal loss at Oakland. That, and a lot of dropped passes by Colts receivers, kept Indianapolis (4-2) from taking a two-game lead over Tennessee in the AFC South. The Colts didnt even score a touchdown. All their points came on three field goals by Adam Vinatieri. A week earlier, Luck helped rally the Colts to a 34-28 victory against Seattle. "We knew if we didnt turn the ball over and we sustained drives, which we did -- we had some 12, 14, 16-play drives -- that wed give ourselves a chance to win," Rivers said. "We didnt go into the game saying Lets play ball control, Rivers added. "We wanted to score as many points as we could. We didnt score that many, but we did sustain drives. I thought Keenan Allen stepped up big. They were doubling Gatesy (Antonio Gates) a lot, and Danny Woodhead stepped up big. The offensive line was great. Thats the way we need to be able to run the football. If we can mix the run in, we got a chance." Luck had no real chance against the Bolts because of two long drives in the second quarter that helped contribute to the Chargers dominating the time of possession 38 minutes, 31 seconds to 21:29. Allen got behind safety Delano Howell and cornerback Vontae Davis on a post route for the TD, completing a 12-play, 74-yard march that took 6:14 and gave San Diego a 7-3 lead. It was Allens second TD catch of the season. Novaks first field goal capped a drive that went 79 yards in 17 plays in 7:58. The drive was kept alive when cornerback Greg Toler was whistled for illegal contact for pushing receiver Lavelle Hawkins out of bounds on third-and-6 from the Chargers 45. Luck then completed four straight passes to move the Colts into Chargers territory before Coby Fleeener dropped a pass at the 25. Buster Skrine Jersey. Luck scrambled for 6 yards and threw an incompletion before Vinatieri kicked a 50-yard field goal as time expired. On the Colts only other possession of the second quarter, Darrius Heyward-Bey dropped what likely would have been a long touchdown pass down the right sideline. "We stunk on third down today," Luck said. "A lot of credit to their defence. I think we made our fair share of mistakes, but I think its what they did. If we cant convert third downs and drives continually stall like that, its a short rest for our defence and no points for us, so its a bad combination." Novak also had field goals of 33, 34 and 50 yards, with the final one coming with 1:55 left. Vinatieri had kicks of 30, 50 and 51 yards. Chargers cornerback Derek Cox snuffed out Indys final chance when he intercepted a pass that was tipped by receiver Reggie Wayne with 1:07 to play. Rivers was 22 of 33 for 237 yards and no interceptions. Luck was 18 of 30 for 202 yards. Wayne got his 1,000th career reception in the fourth quarter on a 21-yard pass from Luck. Wayne had five catches for 88 yards, giving him 1,001 for his career. He passed Hines Ward (1,000) for eighth place on the NFL list. "Its a great honour," Wayne said. "Its a humbling experience to be in an elite class with a bunch of guys who have helped pave the way for guys like myself. I wish it was more of a greater celebration. I would rather take the W than any accolades." The Colts opened the game with a flea-flicker, with Trent Richardson taking the handoff and tossing the ball back to Luck, who completed a 35-yard pass to Wayne. The drive bogged down at the Chargers 11, leading to Vinatieris 30-yard field goal. San Diego established its running game with 147 yards. Ryan Mathews ran for 102 yards on 22 carries for his first 100-yard game of the season. There were family ties in this one: Chargers defensive co-ordinator John Pagano beat older brother Chuck, the Colts coach. "Give John Pagano the credit he deserves," Chargers coach Mike McCoy said. "He did an outstanding job of getting these players ready. Its him and the rest of the whole defensive staff." NOTES: Chargers WR Eddie Royal left with a toe injury in the second quarter but returned later in the game. ... Chargers LG Johnnie Troutman was injured in the second half and also returned. ... Colts ILB Jerrell Freeman sustained a concussion in the first half.
