Adam Wainwright doesnt understand why hes having a really tough time getting the Reds out. Shin-Soo Choo and Joey Votto homered on Monday as Cincinnati roughed up Wainwright for the second start in a row, and Mat Latos went the distance for the first time this season in a 7-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. Latos (14-5) credited an offence that seems to have Wainwrights number. "It doesnt matter who were playing, but theres definitely more of an anxiety added when you have a guy like Wainwright," said Latos, who allowed four hits. "We were fortunate to be able to get to him today." Fortunate? Or maybe theyve figured him out? "I dont know about that," said Ryan Ludwick, who singled home a run. "I think weve gotten some pitches to hit the last two outings weve faced him, and weve done damage." Latos gave up a pair of singles and a sacrifice fly by Matt Holliday in his fourth career complete game. The third-place Reds are trying to end the Cardinals season-long dominance during their four-game series at Great American Ball Park. St. Louis has won the last seven series between the teams and is 10-6 against Cincinnati this year. "It starts at one," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "Hopefully this is just a beginning because weve got a lot of work to do, a long way to go." The Cardinals took two of three in St. Louis last week, the only loss coming when the Reds tagged Wainwright (15-9) for nine runs in a career-low two innings. They hit him hard again on Monday, piling up six runs and 10 hits in six innings. Wainwright isnt sure whats going on with him and the Reds. "The last time, it was a matter of me leaving too many ball in the middle of the plate," Wainwright said. "Today, they hit some good pitches. I feel very strong. Ive had some good games against them in the past. Its a head-scratcher, to be honest with you." Its an important series for Cincinnati, which now trails the Cardinals by 2 1/2 games. St. Louis opened the day tied with Pittsburgh for first place. The Reds maintain a comfortable lead for the ffinal NL wild-card spot. Royals Jerseys 2019. The last time the Cardinals visited Great American Ball Park, they won by scores of 13-3 and 15-2 during a one-sided series that left the Reds embarrassed. This one started much better for them. Wainwright fell to 5-9 career against Cincinnati. In his last two starts against the Reds, the right-hander has given up 18 hits and 15 runs in only eight innings. Hes 1-3 in four starts against Cincinnati this season with a 7.77 ERA. "Thats a real good pitcher," Baker said. "We have nothing but respect for Wainwright. Hes not the guy that you would exactly choose to face twice a week. Its a funny game." Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina came out of the game in the fifth inning because of a sore left wrist. He was activated off the 15-day disabled list on Aug. 15 after missing 14 games with a sore right knee. The Reds quickly got to Wainwright. Choo opened the first with a single and scored on Ludwicks two-out single. Ludwick missed more than three months with torn cartilage in his right shoulder, but the left fielder is starting to get his swing back in shape. Ludwick has driven in a run in each of his last four games. Zack Cozart singled home a run in the second, and Choos two-run homer made it 4-0.
