Fowler delivers again as Martinez, Cardinals beat Reds 8-5

CINCINNATI (AP) Dexter Fowler delivered again, getting three hits and driving in two runs as the St. Louis Cardinals overcame Scott Schebler's two home runs to beat the Cincinnati Reds 8-5 Thursday night for a three-game sweep.

The Cardinals began the day 2 1/2 games behind Colorado for the second NL wild-card spot and five games behind the Central-leading Chicago Cubs.

Fowler went 7 for 13 with two home runs and six RBIs in the series. Yadier Molina drove in two runs as the Cardinals completed their first sweep in Cincinnati since 2010.
