Cards Finally Back Home, Rally For 3 In 9th To Beat Reds 5-4

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Kolten Wong hit an RBI single and the St. Louis Cardinals finally returned to Busch Stadium with quite a rally, scoring three runs in the ninth inning to beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-4. St. Louis played its first home game since July 26. The Cardinals were idle for 17 days after 10 players tested positive for the virus. Yadier Molina drove in three runs, including an RBI single in the ninth. The nine-time All-Star catcher made his first appearance since being sidelined by COVID-19 earlier this month.
