The Cincinnati Reds clipped the Atlanta Braves, 5-4 in comeback fashion last night. The Braves jumped out to a three run lead in the first on RBI singles from Brian McCann and Dan Uggla. Cincinnati would tally one in the third on a Shin-Soo Choo homer to cut into the lead but the Braves responded in the fifth on a Freddie Freeman RBI single. However, Cincinnati cut the lead to two in the fifth and one in the eighth before back-to-back homers with two outs by Devin Mesoraco and Shin-Soo Choo to win the game in walkoff fashion. The Reds are now 19-15 and will wrap up the three game set with the Braves today. Mike Leake will face off against Mike Minor.
