The Cincinnati Reds ousted the Houston Astros last night, 6-4 in 13 innings. Cincinnati jumped on top with two in the first on a Jay Bruce RBI double and a Ryan Ludwick sac-fly. The Redlegs added another run in the second on a Shin-Soo Choo RBI base knock. The Astros cut the lead to one with one in the third and fourth, but Cincinnati answered on a Billy Hamilton RBI single. Houston would tie the game in the sixth on a pair of RBI doubles that would send it to extras. In the 13th, Jay Bruce broke the tie on an RBI double. The Astros scored once in the bottom half, but the comeback would fall short against Aroldis Chapman. The Reds will now have tonight off before opening a crucial series in Pittsburgh on Friday night at 7.
The Cleveland Indians fell to the Kansas City Royals last night, 7-2. The Royals raced out to an early lead, scoring three times in the first behind a Salvador Perez RBI double. However, the Indians would answer with an RBI double from Michael Brantley and a sac-fly from Michael Bourn in the third to cut the lead to one. But it was all Royals from then on, as Kansas City scored once in the fifth and then three times in the eighth to pull away. The Indians will now host Houston tonight at 7.
