Jordan Walker helps Cardinals edge Reds to wrap up season

Jordan Walker went 3-for-4 with a double, a run and an RBI as the St. Louis Cardinals edged the visiting Cincinnati Reds 4-3 on Sunday in their season finale.

Nick Martini hit a homer for the Reds (82-80) and Stuart Fairchild had two doubles, a run and an RBI.

Winning pitcher Miles Mikolas (9-13) allowed three runs on seven hits in seven innings. He struck out 10 batters and walked none.

Ryan Helsley closed out the ninth inning for the Cardinals (71-91) for his 14th save.

In his final game before retiring, Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright struck out as a pinch hitter.

Reds starting pitcher Hunter Greene (4-7) allowed four runs on nine hits in five innings. He struck out six batters and walked one.

In possibly his last game for the Reds, first baseman Joey Votto was ejected for protesting ball-and-strike calls after striking out in the first inning.

Martini led off the game with a homer to give the Reds a quick 1-0 lead.

The Cardinals tied the score 1-1 in the second inning. Richie Palacios hit a double, Andrew Knizner was hit by a pitch, Jose Fermin bunted the runners over and Irving Lopez hit a sacrifice fly.

Cincinnati moved ahead 2-1 in the third inning on doubles by Fairchild and Elly De La Cruz. But the Cardinals responded by taking a 4-2 lead in the bottom of the inning.

Tommy Edman hit a single, stole second base and scored on Walker’s double. Luken Baker followed with an RBI double and Fermin hit a run-scoring single.

The Reds cut their deficit to 4-3 in the seventh inning as Will Benson hit a single and scored on Fairchild’s double off the left-field wall.

Noelvi Marte hit a one-out double in the ninth inning, extending his hitting streak to 16 games. Marte moved to third on a single by Benson, who then stole second base.

But Helsley struck out the next two batters to seal the victory.
