CINCINNATI, Ohio -- The defending National League champions opened the season with a lot of waiting. And a couple of wins, too. The St. Louis Cardinals overcame another long delay and Todd Fraziers two homers on Thursday, holding on to beat the Cincinnati Reds 7-6 and take two of three in their season-opening series. The first pitch was delayed 3 hours, 42 minutes because of rain. Some of the Cardinals spent their down time by studying Cincinnatis pitchers again and getting a little extra work in the indoor batting cages. "Its tough to stay mentally into it," said Matt Adams, who had a single and a pair of doubles. "Thats what we had to do to make sure we could go out there and perform. Were watching video and taking swings in the cage and stretching and making sure were ready to go." Finally on the field, the Cardinals emerged from their two-game hitting slump by knocking Homer Bailey (0-1) out of the game in the fifth inning. Jhonny Peralta homered to get it going. It wasnt perfect -- St. Louis stranded eight runners -- but it was much better. "We had a lot of opportunities that we missed, too," manager Mike Matheny said. "We had a lot of guys in scoring position." St. Louis pulled away with three runs in the seventh, when Matt Hollidays single off the top of the outfield wall was upheld by the only video review of the series, this one initiated by the umpires. Lance Lynn (1-0) gave up Jay Bruces two-run homer and Fraziers solo shot during five innings. Frazier added a three-run homer in the seventh that cut it to 7-6. Trevor Rosenthal got the last four outs for his second save. The series involved nearly as much waiting as playing. There was a 2-hour, 40-minute delay before Wednesdays game, a 1-0 victory by Cincinnati. Along with the delay on Thursday, the teams wound up waiting 6 hours, 22 minutes to play during the two days. As Thursdays delay stretched on, Reds reliever Sam LeCure tweeted: "Uncle." "The whole series was kind of weird with all the rain and stuff," Frazier said. "It really put a damper on things." The starters had a rough time after the delay. Lynn beat the Reds three times last season, but couldnt get a 1-2-3 inning on Thursday. Bruce and Frazier hit back-to-back homers in the first for a 3-0 lead. Even Bailey had a single off Lynn, who gave up eight hits while throwing 107 pitches. Peralta hit a two-run homer in the second off Bailey, and the Cardinals tied it with a breakthrough hit in the fourth. Adams doubled and came around on Jon Jays double, the Cardinals first hit with a runner in scoring position this season. They had been 0 for 17. Jays hit also extended his hitting streak to 15 games, including the end of last season. Hollidays first hit of the season, an RBI double, put the Cardinals up 4-3 in the fifth. Bailey lasted only 4 1-3 innings, giving up seven hits, three walks and four runs. The Cardinals added three in the seventh, when they loaded the bases on a pair of walks and Hollidays single off the top of the wall. The ball went over Billy Hamiltons glove and deflected to Bruce, who caught the ball. The umpires correctly ruled that it a hit off the top of the wall, and a 2-minute, 8-second review initiated by the umps upheld the call. They wanted to make sure the ball hadnt cleared the wall. Allen Craig and Yadier Molina followed with RBI singles as St. Louis pulled ahead 7-3. NOTES: The game ended 7 hours, 23 minutes after it was originally scheduled to start. ... Shelby Miller starts for the Cardinals in Pittsburgh on Friday against Gerrit Cole. Mike Leake goes for the Reds in New York against the Mets Jenrry Mejia. ... Adams dived into the stands trying to catch a foul ball, and pushed a fan who reached up and caught it before he could get it. "I was trying to stop myself from going into the stands," Adams said. "People came up to me and said I shoved him. I didnt even know. Im not that type of guy to go after anybody." ... It was Fraziers fourth career multihomer game. ... Hamilton walked in the eighth inning, reaching base for the first time this season. He is 0 for 12 with six strikeouts. Len Dawson Jersey . Lauzon rushed for 42 yards on 15 carries for the Vert et Or (2-3) while quarterback Jeremi Roch completed 19-of-32 passes for 251 yards and one interception. Alexandre Aube scored the other touchdown for Sherbrooke. Spencer Ware Jersey . Weise will have his hearing with the NHL head office over the phone, while the league has requested an in-person hearing with Kassian. Oilers centre Sam Gagner suffered a broken jaw after getting hit with a high stick from Kassian in Edmontons 5-2 win. . Summers has seen scant playing time with the Coyotes since being selected 29th overall by the club in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, having played in 47 career NHL games. Derrick Johnson Jersey . The $145.7-million Tim Hortons Field was slated to open this month, a year before it was to host all 32 mens and womens soccer competitions. The delay has forced the Hamilton Tiger-Cats football team to use a smaller facility for the first two home games of the season. Bennie Logan Jersey . This game was inside. Adrian Peterson was missing. The stage was set for another step toward the playoffs.Charlotte, NC ( - Cam Newtons two third-quarter touchdown passes and a smothering defensive display kept the Carolina Panthers rolling with a 27-16 victory over the Arizona Cardinals in an NFC Wild Card Playoff. Newton delivered scoring strikes to Fozzy Whittaker and Mike Tolbert that erased a 14-13 halftime deficit, and the Panthers defense made the lead stand by limiting a weaponless Arizona attack to a mere 13 yards and two first downs over the final two quarters. With third-string quarterback Ryan Lindley at the controls, the Cardinals mustered a paltry 78 total yards overall -- the fewest by one team in a playoff game in NFL history. Both of Arizonas touchdowns came on short fields caused by a pair of Carolina turnovers. Lindley did throw a TD pass to Darren Fells in the second quarter, but was intercepted twice -- once near the goal line -- and finished with just 81 yards on a 16-of-28 completion rate. Jonathan Stewart added 123 rushing yards and a touchdown on 24 carries in the fifth straight win for the Panthers, whose late-season surge was good enough to capture the soft NFC South with a 7-8-1 record. Newton hit on 18-of-32 throws for 198 yards with one interception. Carolina will next visit either reigning Super Bowl champ Seattle or Green Bay in the Divisional round, depending on the outcome of Sundays Detroit-Dallas clash. The loss concluded a disastrous stretch run for Arizona, which owned the NFLs best record at 9-1 in mid-November. The Cardinals then lost four of their final six regular-season games with quarterbacks Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton beset by injuries. Arizona capitalized on a Newton interception and a fumbled punt by Brenton Bersin to go ahead at the break, but had minus-three yards during a third quarter in which the Panthers dominated on both ends. Whittaker put Carolina in front to stay with 5:36 remaining in the period by taking a short screen 39 yards to the end zone, with the reserve running back eluding several tackles after cutting across the field and following his blocks down the left sideline. Arizonas Ted Ginn Jr. opted to return the ensuing kickoff after fielding it eight yards deep in the end zone, but the former Panther had the ball dislodged by Melvin White at the 8-yard line and Kevin Reddick recovered the fumble for Carolina at the 3. After Tony Jefferson was called for interference on Greg Olsen on an incomplete pass on 3rd-and-goal, Newton found Tolbert alone in the flat on the next snap for a 1-yard touchdown that staked the Panthers to a 27-14 lead. The deficit proved to be too much for Arizonas punchless offense to overcome, though the Cardinals had a chance to closse the gap when Sam Acho forced a fumble while sacking Newton in Carolina territory with just under 12 minutes left.dddddddddddd Rashad Jefferson returned the loose ball 30 yards to the Panthers 8-yard line. However, All-Pro linebacker Luke Kuechly stepped in front of Larry Fitzgerald and intercepted Lindley on the following play. The Cardinals never threatened afterward, managing only a safety in the final seconds when Carolina punter Brad Nortman deliberately ran out of the end zone to avoid a potential block. Carolinas two costly turnovers negated a 208-65 advantage in total yards for the first half, as well as a 10-0 lead it had built after one quarter. Bersin bobbled away a punt on his own 30-yard line to set up Arizonas first touchdown, Lindleys 1-yard strike to Fells on the opening play of the second quarter that came after the fill-in quarterback delivered a 14-yard completion to Fitzgerald to convert a 3rd-and-10. Newtons cross-up with Jerricho Cotchery later in the frame resulted in Antonio Cromarties interception and 50-yard return into the red zone. Four plays later, Marion Grice stretched the football across the goal line on a 1- yard run for a 14-10 Arizona advantage, with the score initially ruled a fumble that the Panthers recovered but overturned on replay. Graham Gano also pulled a 43-yard field goal attempt wide left to add to Carolinas mistakes, though he hit a 39-yarder late in the half to complete a 9-play, 59-yard two-minute drive. The Panthers appeared to be on the way to a blowout win early on, scoring on their first two possessions that each began on short punts by the Cardinals Drew Butler. Butlers 24-yard kick led to a Gano 47-yard field goal that began the scoring. Newton went 4-for-4 on Carolinas next series, which Stewart finished with a winding 13-yard touchdown that put the NFC South champs up 10-0 with 5:21 left in the first quarter. Game Notes Arizonas 78 yards surpassed the 86 Cleveland managed against the New York Giants in the 1958 Eastern Conference Championship for the fewest in an NFL postseason game ... The Panthers snapped a three-game postseason losing streak, which included a 33-13 setback to Arizona in Charlotte in a 2008 NFC Divisional Round matchup ... The Cardinals surrendered 188 rushing yards after permitting 267 and 206 on the ground to Seattle and San Francisco, respectively, in the final two weeks of the regular season ... Kuechly was credited with 10 tackles and two passes defensed in addition to his interception ... Carolina wide receiver Philly Brown did not return after injuring his left shoulder near the end of the first half.
