Schebler’s walk off HR leads Reds over Cardinals

CINCINNATI (AP) — Scott Schebler’s three-run homer in the ninth inning rallied the Cincinnati Reds to a 7-5 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday night.

Brandon Moss and Tommy Pham hit solo homers in the eighth for a 5-4 lead, but the Cardinals couldn’t hold on.

Seung Hwan Oh (2-2) escaped a bases-loaded threat in the eighth, but gave up a pair of singles to start the ninth. Schebler connected for his second homer of the season and first game-ending shot.

Jumbo Diaz (1-1) fanned Oh with the bases loaded in the top of the ninth to keep it 5-4.
