The Cincinnati Reds fell to the Texas Rangers yesterday, 3-2. The Rangers jumped on the board in the fifth on a throwing error that would plate two runs. Texas pushed the lead out to three in the seventh when Nelson Cruz hit an RBI single to right. However, in the eighth Chris Heisey hit a sacrifice fly as the Reds cut the Texas lead to 3-2. But that would be all the offense Cincinnati could get as the Reds continued to struggle, falling to 46-36. The Redlegs will return home tonight to battle the San Francisco Giants. Bronson Arroyo will toe the rubber against Michael Kickham. The game can be heard on 970 WATH with pre game at 6:35 and first pitch at 7:05.

Justin Masterson was dominant on the hill for Cleveland, throwing a complete game shutout and giving up just six hits with eight strikeouts.

In the ninth, Alex Burridge came through with an RBI single to tie the game and send it to extras. In the tenth, Jesse Puscheck would blast a two-run homer to give Southern Ohio the lead, but Licking County scored three times in the bottom half to walk off with the win. The Copperheads will hit the road for a two game set with the Lake Erie Monarchs now on Tuesday night.
