CINCINNATI -- Since the All-Star break, the last-place Reds have traded away another star and turned into a formidable team. Saucony Jazz Original Prezzo .Brandon Phillips had three hits and left-hander Brandon Finnegan allowed two singles in six innings on Thursday, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 7-0 victory and a rare series win over the St. Louis Cardinals.The Reds took two of three, giving them only their fifth series win in the last 23 between the NL Central rivals. And it goes beyond the one series.For the first time since 1999, the Reds have won six straight series after the All-Star break. They traded RBI leader Jay Bruce to the Mets during the current surge.This is the time when some teams might phone it in, manager Bryan Price said. This group hasnt.Phillips had a single and a pair of doubles, scored three times and drove in a run against former teammate Mike Leake (8-9). Ramon Cabrera drove in three runs, and Eugenio Suarez knocked in a pair.Finnegan (7-8) allowed only a pair of singles, and then left after throwing 79 pitches on a humid, 88-degree afternoon. The bullpen gave up three more singles while closing out Cincinnatis fourth shutout, which is tied with Milwaukee and Pittsburgh for the fewest in the NL.I didnt have my best command, Finnegan said. They hit some balls hard, but we had some guys catch it. I had a lot of movement on the ball. (It) was a confidence boost, definitely.Reds first baseman Joey Votto went 0 for 4, ending a 17-game hitting streak that was the longest of his career.It was the second time that the Reds faced Leake since they traded him in the middle of last season as part of their rebuilding. On July 7 at Great American Ball Park, Leake allowed only one earned run in 7 1/3 innings of a 7-6 Reds victory that ended with Vottos homer in the bottom of the ninth.This time, he left the game after failing to retire a batter in the sixth, giving up eight hits and seven runs. After spending his first 5 1/2 seasons in Cincinnati, Leake suspects the Reds have an advantage because they know how he pitches.Im sure it plays a part, Leake said.Leake extended his streak without walking a batter to 35 innings, the longest in the majors this season. It ended when Adam Duvall walked on a full-count pitch to open the sixth. The club record is held by Bob Tewksbury, who went 44 innings without walking a batter in 1993. Duvall later scored on Phillips double, his third hit of the game.The Reds got a pair of runs in the second inning, all on hits to right field. Phillips singled, Scott Schebler doubled and Cabrera pulled a ball down the line for a two-run single. Phillips doubled again to right field in the fourth and scored on Suarezs sacrifice fly.STATSThe Reds won nine straight series after the All-Star break in 1999, when they lost a one-game playoff to the Mets for the NL wild card. ... The Cardinals got Brandon Moss and Jhonny Peralta back from the DL at the start of the series. Moss went 6 for 13 with two doubles and a homer in the series. Peralta was 2 for 10.TRAINERS ROOMCardinals: Leadoff hitter Matt Carpenter is expected to come off the DL over the weekend. Hes missed 29 games with a strained right oblique. He went 4 for 12 during a rehab assignment with a homer and a double.Reds: SS Zack Cozart was out of the lineup for the third consecutive game with a bruised finger on his throwing hand. ... Schebler was hit on the right side of the knee in the sixth but stayed in the game. He left after the inning as part of a double switch.UP NEXTCardinals: St. Louis returns home and starts a three-game series against Atlanta. LHP Jaime Garcia (7-8) is 2-1 in seven career starts against the Braves with a 4.32 ERA.Reds: Anthony DeSclafani (6-0) opens a series in Pittsburgh. Hes 0-1 with a 3.27 ERA in two career starts at PNC Park.---Follow Joe Kay on Twitter: http://twitter.com/apjoekay Nike Air Max 2017 Offerta . "It was nerve-wracking, but we pulled through," said Collaros, who threw four touchdown passes to lead the Toronto Argonauts (8-4) to a 33-27 win over the Calgary Stampeders (9-3) in front of 28,781 fans at McMahon Stadium. Saucony Jazz Original Scontate . Any real chance at payback wont come until the playoff. Still, Pittsburgh knows its taut 3-2 win over the Bruins on Wednesday night is a pretty good place to start laying the groundwork. "They are a very good defensive team," Penguins forward Brandon Sutter said. http://www.sauconyoutletitaliaon-line.it/saucony-shadow-italia.html . Each of Houstons starters scored in double figures as the Rockets improved to 2-0 against the Spurs this season, with both victories coming on the road. They also moved within 3 1/2 games of San Antonio (22-7) for the lead the Southwest Division. One loss didnt really cost No. 5 Clemson a shot at the national title. A second one wont be as forgiving.The Tigers (9-1, 6-1 ACC, No. 4 CFP) are still in control of the leagues Atlantic Division, and remained in the top four of the College Football Playoff rankings -- even after Pittsburgh beat them last week.A loss at Wake Forest (6-4, 3-3) on Saturday night, though, would change everything.Quarterback Deshaun Watson called that one-point loss to Pitt a good learning lesson before pointing out that its something they know they cant afford to experience again.I havent had too many losses, especially in college, Watson said. Its new around here. But you live and you learn. Youre going to take losses at some point in your life. Everyones not perfect. Theres no one thats playing football right now thats completely undefeated, regardless if youre a player or a coach. Its a good time to learn and grow from it.With a win, Clemson will wrap up a share of the division title with Louisville and would earn a spot in the ACC championship game in two weeks in Orlando, Florida. A loss, and its the Cardinals who will represent the Atlantic Division -- and would move into prime position to claim one of the four playoff spots.Wake Forest felt the potency of those Cardinals last week, and now wants to do a better job of playing the full 60 minutes against Clemson.The Demon Deacons led Louisville and had Heisman Trophy front-runner Lamar Jackson bottled up through three quarters before the Cardinals reeled off 34 points in the fourth quarter of a 44-12 victory.I told the team that you battled your butt off and had everyone in the country turning the channel to see the fourth quarter of a Wake Forest football game and we didnt finish the deal, coach Dave Clawson said. What can we learn from that? I think the lesson is to beat a team of that calibber, you have to execute for four quarters. Nike Air Vapormax Flyknit Uomo. If there is any let up, a team like that makes you pain instantly and dearly.---Some other things to know about the Clemson-Wake Forest game:WATSONS TENDENCIES: Watson is passing more often and throwing less frequently than he did last year when he was a Heisman finalist. The Clemson QB is averaging five more pass attempts and four fewer rushes than in 2014, though those passing numbers might be skewed by the 70 throws he made against Pitt last week. Hes rushed eight times or fewer in three of his last five games.TURNOVER MARGIN: Takeaways are always key and Wake Forest can give itself a chance at the upset by continuing to force turnovers. The Demon Deacons lead the ACC with a turnover margin of plus-9 -- a marked improvement over last year, when they were minus-13 -- and Watson threw three interceptions in the loss to Pitt.DABO VS. WAKE: Clemson coach Dabo Swinney is 7-0 against the Demon Deacons and the combined score is 264-94. Wake Forests last win in the series came in 2008 and three days after the game the Tigers parted ways with then-coach Tommy Bowden and promoted Swinney on an interim basis.ONE WHO GOT AWAY: Keep an eye on Clemson DT Dexter Lawrence, a freshman from Wake Forest, North Carolina, who had nine tackles in the Pitt loss while also recovering a fumble and blocking two kicks. Only three other players in school history have that many blocks in one game.---AP Sports Writer Pete Iacobelli in Clemson, South Carolina, contributed to this report.---Follow Joedy McCreary at http://twitter.com/joedyap.
