The Cincinnati Reds topped the Cleveland Indians yesterday, 4-2. The Reds jumped out to an early lead on a Shin-Soo Choo solo homer in the first. The Tribe would tie it in the fourth on a Carlos Santana sac-fly, but the Reds came right back with a run in the sixth on a Brandon Phillips sac-fly to take the lead. In the eighth, Jason Giambi smashed a 467-foot homer to tie the game at two. But once again, Cincinnati responded on a Joey Votto two-run homer in the bottom half of the eighth that would win the game. Mike Leake was solid on the mound for the Reds, throwing 7.1 innings and surrendering one earned run on five hits with seven strikeouts. The Reds and Indians will battle again today in Cincinnati. Mat Latos will toe the rubber against Zach McAllister. The game can be heard on 970 WATH with pre game at 6:40 and first pitch at 7:10.
