The Cincinnati Reds were eliminated from the NLDS yesterday with a 6-4 loss to the San Francisco Giants. The Giants took a big lead in the fifth, scoring six times behind a Brandon Crawford RBI triple and a grand slam from Buster Posey. Cincinnati responded with two runs in the bottom half off of a Brandon Phillips two RBI double. The Reds would cut into the lead a little more in the sixth on a Ryan Ludwick solo homer. In the bottom of the ninth, Cincinnati cut into the lead more on a Ludwick RBI single, but with two on and two out, Scott Rolen failed to deliver. Cincinnati finishes the season with a record of 99-68. The Giants advance to the NLCS and will take on the winner of St. Louis and Washington.
In other MLB playoff action, Washington tied the series with St. Louis at two with a walk off 2-1 win. The Baltimore Orioles outlasted the New York Yankees, 2-1 in 13 innings to tie the series at two and Detroit claimed the ALCS over Oakland with a 6-0 win.
