ST. LOUIS, Mo. (AP) – Jon Jay was hit by a pitch from J.J. Hoover with the base-loaded in the ninth inning, lifting the St. Louis Cardinals to a 5-4 win over the Reds on Tuesday night.

Matt Holliday drew a leadoff walk to start the winning rally. He advanced to third on Matt Adams’ single. After Peter Bourjos ran for Holliday, Jhonny Peralta walked to load the bases. Hoover (1-10) then plunked Jay to force in Bourjos with the winning run.

Pat Neshek (6-0) pitched one inning of scoreless relief as the Cardinals won for the fifth time in six games and remained 2 1/2 games behind Milwaukee in the NL Central.

The Reds have lost four in a row.

Jay scored the tying run in the eighth on pinch-hitter Daniel Descalso’s RBI double.
