Homer Bailey didn't feel so good while warming up. When it mattered, he gave the Reds everything they needed in a game they desperately wanted. Bailey allowed only three hits into the eighth inning and Zach Cozart hit his first major league homer Sunday, leading Cincinnati to a 3-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals that left the Reds feeling revived.
