The Cincinnati Reds fell to the Chicago Cubs last night, 4-2 in 10 innings. The Cubs were on the board first, scoring twice in the second behind a solo homer from Cody Ransom. The Reds cut the lead to one in the third on a Chris Heisey solo blast, but the game would go scoreless until the ninth. Joey Votto came through in the bottom of the ninth to keep the game alive with an RBI single and send it to extras. However, in the 10th, Darwin Barney smashed a solo homer and Dave Sappeit drove in a run with a base hit. Cincinnati’s late comeback would fall short and the Reds dropped to 12-9. The Redlegs will wrap up the homestand against Chicago today. Mat Latos will duel with Jeff Samardzija. The game can be heard on 970 WATH immediately following the Midday Journal at 12:35.
