      Reds blank Cardinals

      CINCINNATI (AP) -- Speedy Billy Hamilton got his first major league steal Tuesday night and came around on Todd Frazier's double in the seventh inning, sending the Cincinnati Reds to a 1-0 victory, their second straight over the St. Louis Cardinals.

      Hamilton set a professional record by swiping 155 bases in the minors last year. He got an ovation when he made his big league debut as a pinch runner for Ryan Ludwick, who led off the seventh with a single against Seth Maness (5-2).

      After Maness threw to first three times, Hamilton took off and beat catcher Yadier Molina's off-target throw. He scored easily on Frazier's hit and got congratulatory slaps in the dugout.
