CINCINNATI, OHIO (FOX19) - Homer Bailey earned his first win in three outings against St. Louis (26-22) this season as the Cincinnati Reds (22-24) knocked off the Cards in the first game of the series 5-3 Friday night.

Bailey (4-3) managed to scatter eight Cardinal singles over six innings, giving up three runs and striking out four.

"Those guys had been hot so we had to throw good pitches," Bailey said.

Reds' third baseman Todd Frazier has been on a tear through the month of May and manager Bryan Price moved Frazier into the two-hole in the lineup for the first time this season. Frazier capitalized on the opportunity with a three-run homerun in the third to go along with a single up the middle in the seventh. Frazier's batting average in May is now up to .306, with five homeruns and 15 RBI.

"If you get a pitch, you got to hit it. We got the pitches and we got the hits," Frazier said.

Reds' catcher Devin Mesoraco hit a solo shot for his sixth homerun of the year. First-baseman Brayan Pena added two hits and an RBI-sacrifice fly, scoring Jay Bruce who had doubled earlier in the inning in his first game back since missing 14 games recovering from surgery on a partially torn meniscus. Billy Hamilton picked up two more stolen bases tonight, raising his total to 18 on the year.

Cardinals' starting pitcher Shelby Miller went five innings, giving up four runs on five hits. Miller had won his six previous decisions before being handed the loss in this one. Tonight's start is the most runs Miller had given up in a game since his first start of the year on April 4, when he allowed five runs in a loss against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Miller moves to 6-3 on the year with two of his three losses coming against the Reds.
