J.J. Hoover then issued a walk to Matt Holliday, loading the bases, and Craig (3-for-4) followed by slicing the first pitch he saw over the right field fence for a grand slam, giving him 95 RBI on the season.
Holliday belted a three-run homer for St. Louis, which grabbed a 1/2-game lead over idle Pittsburgh atop the National League Central with a victory in the first of a three-game series.
Zack Cozart (three RBI) and Todd Frazier each supplied a two-run triple for the Reds, who fell 3 1/2 game off the pace in the NL Central.
