CINCINNATI (AP) – Nick Castellanos stood up, bent over, and jabbed St. Louis pitcher Jake Woodford after scoring a series of fights involving lighters that shook on the pitch as the Incinati Reds beat the Reds.
St. Louis starting manager Adam Wainwright turned six runs and was chased in the third. At the beginning, the teams started labeling each other.
Castellanos, longing for the opening day, jumped out of the box before Woodford threw his bat, knocking out two exits and the fourth none. Castellanos took the ball and offered to throw it back to Woodford before deflecting it.
The wild field soon shocked Castellanos from third, he headed in a 7-2 draw when he collided with Woodford, who caught Yadier Molina throwing the plate.
As Castellanos began to walk, Molina hurried from above, struck him from behind, and the benches and bulls emptied into the wild scene.
There was more pushing before the command was restored. But as the jars of help from both teams went to their bulls, they became entangled in the field.
Castellanos ousted the only player. Aristides Aquino replaces Castellanos and leads the sixth final at home.
The two-run Tucker Barnhart household burned a third of the six runs for the Reds.
Tyler Mahl (1-0) attacked nine in five innings, allowing two earned runs.
Paul DeJong performed with two soloists in St. Louis. Nolan Arenado joined the Cardinals in his first home run.
Wainwright (0-1) had just 2/3 innings, losing seven of their five runs.
Back in 2010, the Cardinals and the Reds were in a big fight in Incinati. Molina և Brandon Phillips started barking on the plate և, finally, the jug of “reds” nyu Queto nailed in the back և tried to get out.
Cardinals. OF Harrison Bader (right forearm), RHP Dakota Hudson (elbow), LHP Kwang Hyun Kim (back) և RHP Miles Mikolas (right shoulder) are on the 10-day disability list.
Reds. CF Nick Senzel did not start catching the opening dive on Thursday after injuring his left shoulder. He was replaced by Tyler Nakin, but Senzel entered the game in the fifth move with a double switch. Manager David Bell said Shogo Akiyama (hamstring) և RHP Sonny Gray (back) would soon report to an alternative site in Louisville, Kentucky to continue their recovery.
The Cardinals send RHP’s Carlos Martinez to the hill on Sunday to meet with Reds right-back Jeff Hoffmann in the final of the three-game series on Sunday.
