ST. LOUIS (AP) - Kolten Wong and Paul DeJong homered, Miles Mikolas tossed seven strong innings and the St. Louis Cardinals completed their second sweep of the woeful Cincinnati Reds this season with a 9-2 victory. The Cardinals have won eight of nine overall and 11 in a row over the Reds. Cincinnati, which has lost five in a row and 13 of 14, has the worst record in the majors at 3-18. The Reds are 0-3 since firing manager Bryan Price and replacing him with Jim Riggleman.

DETROIT (AP) - Mike Moustakas hit a tiebreaking three-run homer in the seventh inning, and the Kansas City Royals outlasted the Detroit Tigers 8-5 to earn a split of their four-game series. Abraham Almonte hit a grand slam in the sixth to give the Royals a 5-2 lead, but Detroit tied it with three runs in the bottom of the inning.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Right-hander Adam Wainwright was placed on the 10-day disabled list by the St. Louis Cardinals because of right elbow inflammation. The 36-year-old is 1-2 with a 3.45 ERA in three starts. He had been scheduled to start Tuesday against the New York Mets. St. Louis made the move retroactive to Friday. Right-hander John Brebbia was recalled from Triple-A Memphis.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A two-year-old pup once destined to be euthanized was crowned the winner of Sunday's "Beautiful Bulldog Contest" at Drake University. The annual tongue-in-cheek pageant for English bulldogs, now in its 39 year, is the unofficial start to this week's Drake Relays track meet. This year's champion, "Bow-Z," hails from nearby Pella, Iowa. She was set to be put down as a puppy because of various physical ailments but was re-routed to a no-kill shelter instead.
