Lynn improves to 5-0 as Cards drop RedsFast starts are becoming routine for Lance Lynn and the St. Louis Cardinals.
Lynn won his 10th straight decision, allowing one run and five hits in seven innings Wednesday to lead the Cardinals over the Cincinnati Reds, 4-2.
Lynn (5-0) struck out five and walked two, improving to 10-0 in 10 starts and one relief appearance since losing to Milwaukee on Sept. 7. He became the NL’s first five-game winner.
“It’s early - but it’s fun so far,” Lynn said.
He was 6-0 with a 1.48 ERA through May 7 last season, then went 12-7 with a 4.46 ERA the rest of the way.
Leading the NL Central at the start of May for the sixth straight year, St. Louis has won six of its last nine.
