CINCINNATI (AP) -- Matt Adams' second homer sent St. Louis to a 5-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds in 16 innings on Wednesday night, protecting the Cardinals' hold on second place in the NL Central.

Adams broke an 0-for-17 slump by connecting in the 14th. After St. Louis let that lead get away, he homered again off Logan Ondrusek (3-1), ending the Reds' longest game of the season.

The Cardinals had dropped the first two games in the series, letting the Reds get within a game and a half for second place. They finish their season series on Thursday. St. Louis leads it 11-8.

Carlos Martinez (2-1) escaped a threat in the 15th, when Shin-Soo Choo reached third with two outs but was caught in a rundown.

The Cardinals have dropped five of seven overall, costing them precious ground in the division's three-team race. The Pirates, Cardinals and Reds are all in good shape to make the playoffs - one as a champion, the other two as wild cards.

St. Louis wasted a chance to put it away in the 14th inning.

Adams broke his deep slump by leading off with homer off Alfredo Simon. Speedy Billy Hamilton helped the Reds tie it with another stolen base in the bottom of the inning.

Hamilton ran for Ryan Ludwick after his single off Edward Mujica, who blew a save chance for only the third time in 38 chances. Hamilton stole second - he's 2 for 2 against catcher Yadier Molina - and scored easily on Zack Cozart's single.

Leadoff hitter Matt Carpenter had three hits and a walk, scoring twice. Carpenter has five of the Cardinals' 14 hits in the last two games.

Bronson Arroyo broke with his history of subpar showings against the Cardinals. It was his 38th career start against St. Louis - more than against any other team - and he didn't have a lot to show for it, going 0-3 against the Cardinals this season and 8-16 in his career.

He went seven innings and allowed three runs - two earned - giving the Reds chances that they squandered.

St. Louis scored twice in the fourth, when Matt Holliday hit a sacrifice fly and Carlos Beltran came around on a throwing error by first baseman Joey Votto on Allen Craig's grounder.

Craig sprained his left foot while rounding the base on the play and left the game. He'll be examined again on Thursday.

Brandon Phillips led off the fifth with his 18th homer, giving him 100 RBIs. He's the first Reds second baseman to reach the mark since Hall of Famer Joe Morgan drove in 111 in 1976, when the Reds swept the Yankees for their second straight World Series championship.

Notes: RH Jake Westbrook felt good a day after he threw in the bullpen. Westbrook has been sidelined since Aug. 22 with a strained lower back. He's eligible to come off the DL on Friday. Manager Mike Matheny isn't sure whether he'll use him as a starter - as Westbrook prefers - or out of the bullpen when he returns. ... Carpenter leads the NL with 169 hits and 15 three-hit games. ... Arroyo tied a Reds record with three sacrifice bunts. ... LH Tony Cingrani (6-3) starts the final game of the series for Cincinnati. He went on the DL after leaving a game Aug. 20 with a strained lower back. RH Lance Lynn (13-9) starts for St. Louis. He's 3-0 in four starts against the Reds this season.

AP - A judge has again blocked an Ohio hospital from forcing a 10-year-old Amish girl to resume chemotherapy after her parents decided to stop the treatments.

The order comes a week after an appeals court sent the case back to the judge and told him to give more consideration to the request by Akron Children's Hospital.

The hospital wants limited guardianship of Sarah Hershberger to decide whether the Medina County girl should continue treatments for leukemia. Doctors believe Sarah will die without chemotherapy.

But Judge John Lohn said in his ruling that not allowing the parents to make medical decisions for their daughter would take away their rights, and said there is no guarantee the chemotherapy would be successful.

The girl's family stopped treatment because it was making her extremely sick.

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire public health officials believe one person died of a rare, degenerative brain disease, and there's a remote chance up to 13 others in multiple states were exposed to it through surgical equipment.

Dr. Joseph Pepe, president of Catholic Medical Center, says officials are 95 percent certain that a patient who had brain surgery in May and died in August had sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.

Officials have notified eight people who had brain surgery during that time period, because the faulty proteins that cause the disease can survive standard sterilization. The disease has only been transmitted that way four times, never in the United States.

Some of the surgical instruments had been rented, and officials say up to five patients in other states could have been exposed.

The equipment has been quarantined.

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Democratic Newark, N.J., Mayor Cory Booker has to focus on a surge in crime in his city with six weeks left in his campaign for a U.S. Senate seat.

The state's largest city recorded its ninth homicide in as many days Tuesday.

At a campaign event Wednesday, Booker announced the city is working on a program to put more police on the streets. He calls the run of violence "unacceptable" and has outlined plans to extend the summer deployment of increased patrols and deploy additional police to target gun violence.

Booker is a rising star in the Democratic Party. His U.S. Senate opponent, Republican Steve Lonegan, has frequently accused him of having spent too much time building a national profile and not enough on Newark's problems.

The special Senate election is Oct. 16.
