The Cincinnati Reds fell to the St. Louis Cardinals last night, 5-4 in 16 innings. The Reds jumped out to the early lead, scoring twice in the second on a Cardinals wild pitch. But the Cards came back with two in the fourth on an Allen Craig RBI infield single. However, Cincinnati responded in the fifth with one on a Brandon Phillips solo blast. But once again St. Louis came back with an RBI single from Carlos Beltran. It would take until the 14th for more runs, as Cincinnati and St. Louis exchanged runs. However, in the 16th, Matt Adams came through with his second solo homer of the game to give St. Louis the win. The Reds finish the series with the Cardinals tonight. Tony Cingrani will take the hill against Lance Lynn. The game can be heard on 970 WATH with pre game at 6:40 and first pitch at 7:10.
The Cleveland Indians topped the Baltimore Orioles last night, 6-4. The Indians raced out to a 4-0 lead in the first on RBI singles from Yan Gomes and Mike Aviles and an RBI double from Ryan Raburn. However, the Orioles would come right back to tie it in the fourth on a solo blast from Adam Jones and a Manny Machado three-run dinger in the fifth. But in the home half of the fifth, the Indians responded on a Yan Gomes RBI double. The Indians have today off before hosting the New York Mets on Friday night at 7.
