The Cincinnati Reds bested the Pittsburgh Pirates last night, 4-1. The Reds delivered fireworks all night, starting on a Zack Cozart solo homer in the fourth. The Pirates came back to tie the game in the sixth with a Russell Martin RBI double. However, it was all Redlegs from then on. Todd Frazier homered in the sixth and in the eighth the Reds pulled away behind a dinger from Joey Votto and one from Jay Bruce. Mike Leake was solid on the hill, throwing seven innings and giving up one run on six hits. The Reds will take on Pittsburgh again today. Matt Latos will take the hill against Charlie Morton.
