Miller strong in debut, leads Cards over Reds 1-0

St. Louis to face Atlanta in wild card playoff

ST. LOUIS - Rookie right-hander Shelby Miller took a no-hitter into the sixth inning in his first career start, Matt Carpenter had a run-scoring single and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Cincinnati Reds 1-0 Wednesday night.

The Cardinals, who won 12 of their final 16 regular-season games, clinched the second NL wild card spot Tuesday and will face the Braves in Atlanta on Friday.

Cincinnati, which has won four of seven, takes on NL West champion San Francisco in an NL division series beginning Saturday.

Carpenter drove in Shane Robinson with a one-out single that eluded second baseman Henry Rodriguez. Robinson singled off Jonathan Broxton (3-3) to start the rally.

St. Louis reliever Victor Marte (3-2) picked up the win with one inning of relief.
