Jose Martinez's Slam Highlights Cardinals' Nine-Run Frame

After sparking a second-inning rally that erased the Cardinals' early deficit, Jose Martinez connected for his first career grand slam to key St. Louis' nine-run inning against the Reds. The deluge of runs was a welcome change of pace for the Cardinals, who had scored 14 over the first five games of this road trip. St. Louis won the game, 13-4, to earn the series victory.
