09/19 22:02 CDT Cardinals beat Reds 2-1, stay 2 1-2 up in Central Cardinals beat Reds 2-1, stay 2 1-2 up in Central R.B. FALLSTROM AP Sports Writer ST. LOUIS (AP) --- John Lackey powered back into the St. Louis postseason rotation picture with 7 2-3 dominant innings, and Randal Grichuk and Matt Holliday hit consecutive homers in the first inning of the Cardinals' 2-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Friday night. The NL Central leaders had only five hits but maintained a 2 1-2-game lead over the Pittsburgh Pirates with eight games remaining. Their magic number is seven for clinching a second straight division title and two over third-place Milwaukee for securing a fourth straight postseason berth. St. Louis is 6-1 on its final nine-game homestand. Lackey (14-9) was passed over in the just-completed three-game series against Milwaukee after complaining of a dead arm. The 35-year-old right-hander arrived at the trade deadline with a big-game reputation but was 2-2 with a 5.05 ERA in his first eight starts.
