The Cincinnati Reds fell for the second straight day, 8-3 to the San Francisco Giants to tie the NLDS at two. The Giants took the lead right away as Angel Pagan homered in the first at bat of the game. However, the Reds answered in the bottom half of the first when Todd Frazier walked in a run. But, San Francisco responded right away in the second behind a Gregor Blanco two-run shot. Cincinnati would cut into the lead in the third on a Ryan Ludwick solo blast. But once again, the Giants answered by scoring two in the fifth on an Angel Pagan RBI double. Cincinnati tried to stay alive by putting up one in the sixth, but the Giants would prove to be too much, putting the game out of reach in the seventh with three runs. The NLDS will be decided today in Cincinnati. The game can be heard on 970 WATH with pregame at 12:30 and first pitch at 1.
