The Cincinnati Reds ousted the Oakland Athletics yesterday, 6-5. The Reds scored one in the first, but Oakland responded with a solo homer from Josh Donaldson in the second. However, the Redlegs came right back with one in the second and two in the third on a Jay Bruce two-run homer and a Corky Miller RBI double. With the Reds up four, Oakland would score three times in the sixth, but the offense would stall there as the Cincinnati bullpen closed the door. The Reds will have tonight off before hosting the San Diego Padres on Friday night. The game can be heard on 970 WATH with pre game at 6:40 and first pitch at 7:10.
The Cleveland Indians fell to the Detroit Tigers, 6-5 in 14 innings last night.

Cleveland would cut the lead to one in the bottom half on a Michael Bourn RBI double, but the Tribe could not tie it. The Indians finish the series with Detroit tonight at 7.
