CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Jaime Garcias 40th win in the majors will always be special. Edrice Adebayo College Jersey . It took a lot of hard work and more than a year to get it. The left-hander took another step in his comeback from shoulder surgery by getting a win on Saturday night, and Yadier Molina homered again in the city where hes always booed, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 6-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. The Cardinals evened their series at a game apiece. St. Louis has won nine of the last 10 series between the NL Central rivals. Garcia (1-0) made his second start since recovering from surgery on his labrum and rotator cuff last May. He gave up six hits and a pair of runs in 5 2-3 innings, fanning seven and retiring 12 batters in a row over one span. Although he would have liked to have stayed in the game longer, it was encouraging to get a long-awaited victory behind his name. "I didnt go as deep as I wanted to," said Garcia, who threw 55 strikes out of 75 pitches. "But its a big win for me, for the team. Obviously Im excited to go out there and feel healthy." His first five innings were very encouraging. "He had exactly what we were hoping to have, right from the top," manager Mike Matheny said. "He just couldnt stay in the game longer." Ryan Ludwick homered in the ninth off Jason Motte. Trevor Rosenthal came on with two outs and fanned Todd Frazier with two runners aboard for his 15th save in 17 chances. Molina hit a solo shot off left-hander Tony Cingrani (2-4), who has lost both of his starts since returning from the disabled list. Cingrani, who had shoulder tendinitis, has given up eight runs and 14 hits in 12 innings his last two times out. Molina also homered off Johnny Cueto for a 1-0 win on opening day in Cincinnati. Two of his five homers have come at Great American Ball Park, where he is booed by fans who remember his 2010 brawl at home plate with second baseman Brandon Phillips. "I tell them to keep booing -- just to myself," Matheny said. "It seems the louder they get, the better he gets." Jon Jay, a late addition to the Cardinals lineup, had three hits and drove in a pair of runs. St. Louis was forced to change its bullpen and its lineup before the game. Left-handed reliever Kevin Siegrist went on the 15-day disabled list with strained pitching forearm. Left-hander Sam Freeman was called up from Triple-A to take his spot. Centre fielder Peter Bourjos was scratched from the lineup less than half an hour before the first pitch because of a stomach virus, prompting Matheny to change three spots in the batting order. Jay, who wasnt in the original lineup, took Bourjos place in centre. The sixth inning proved pivotal, with second baseman Mark Ellis playing a role in both halves. The Cardinals loaded the bases with a single and a pair of walks, and Ellis hit a sacrifice fly to the wall in centre. Jay singled home another run for a 4-1 lead. Phillips doubled home a run in the bottom of the inning, leaving runners on second and third. Ellis jumped and caught Devin Mesoracos liner, helping Garcia hold the lead and stay on course for his first victory since May 17 last year. "An unbelievable play," Garcia said. "A game-changer right there." The Cardinals dugout couldnt believe Ellis got the ball. "The way I saw it, it looked like he had no chance when the ball left the bat," Matheny said. "Im still surprised. It looked like he jumped twice his height." NOTES: Adam Wainwright (7-2) tries to become the NLs first eight-game winner in the series finale.

LOS ANGELES -- Jon Lester had never faced the Los Angeles Dodgers before, and he handled their lineup with ease. The left-hander pitched three-hit ball into the eighth inning, Jonny Gomes three-run homer capped a four-run first, and the Boston Red Sox won 4-2 on Saturday, snapping the Dodgers four-game winning streak. "For the most part, I commanded the ball pretty well and was able to move the fastball around and get some weak contact from a good-hitting lineup," Lester said. "I know what Im capable of. Its just a matter of going out there and doing it. Since the (All-Star) break, Ive felt good physically, and I feel like Im in a good place throwing the ball right now." The Red Sox began the day percentage points behind Tampa Bay for first in the AL East. They won at Dodger Stadium for the first time in five games dating to their first visit in 2002, when they were swept in three games. Lester (12-7) gave up one run in 7 1-3 innings, struck out six and walked four. "He was absolutely phenomenal," Boston catcher David Ross said. "This was the best fastball location hes had for me all year. This is the first time Ive caught him in a while, but he threw excellent." Koji Uehara got the final four outs to earn his career high-tying 13th save in 16 chances. He hasnt allowed a run in his last 18 appearances, going 1-0 with eight saves since July 9. The Red Sox got to rookie Hyun-Jin Ryu (12-5) right away under a searing sun in 82-degree heat. With one out in the first, Ryu hit Shane Victorino with a pitch before Dustin Pedroia reached on an infield single to second. Victorino scored on Mike Napolis RBI single. Gomes followed with his 11th homer on Ryus next pitch, scoring Pedroia and Napoli to make it 4-0. Ryu struck out Stephen Drew and Will Middlebrooks to end the inning. "I was hitting fifth and he threw four first-pitch fastballs before I got up," Gomes said. "I knew he had good off-speed stuff, good secondary stuff, and the majority of pitchers have good fastballs, so I was hunting the fastball." Ryu caught a cold returning from the road trip to Miami, but he said it didnt affect his pitching. He lost in consecutive starts for the first time in his career. "The lesson is donnt give up too many runs," he said through a translator. Stitched Kentucky Jerseys. The Dodgers trailed 4-2 on Adrian Gonzalezs RBI double off Craig Breslow with two outs in the eighth. After Breslow walked Hanley Ramirez to put the tying runs at first and second, Uehara ended the inning by striking out A.J. Ellis. Lester retired eight of the first 10 batters he faced before the Dodgers notched their first hit, a single by Mark Ellis in the fourth. "Our starting pitching has been absolutely grinding and keeping us in the game. Jon grabbed that lead and ran with it," Gomes said. "Thats how he was in the beginning of the season. I dont think hes re-inventing himself right now. I think hes just getting back on track." The Red Sox backed Lester with two double plays, including Drews one-man double play that ended the seventh. He caught a soft line drive off the bat of Juan Uribe and then sprinted to second to double off Ramirez. "We were behind in most of the counts and he made big pitches when he had to," Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis said. "More times than not with our offence were going to be able to get back in the game all the way, but he didnt allow it." Ryu allowed four runs and five hits in five innings, tying his shortest outing of the season. The left-hander struck out seven and walked none in losing his second straight start after winning six in a row. Hours after Ricky Nolasco limited the Red Sox to two hits in a 2-0 on Friday, Ryu fell to 6-2 at home. "Im glad we got to him early," Ross said. "Every pitcher wants to establish their heater. So if youve got a good aggressive hitter like Jonny who can hit the ball out of the ballpark and he jumps on that first pitch, its huge." Dodgers starters hadnt allowed a run in their previous 26 innings dating to Wednesday, their second-longest scoreless run of the season. NOTES: The Red Sox improved to 36-32 on the road. ... Boston SS Xander Bogaerts singled in the ninth for his first major league hit. ...
