Devin Mesoraco hit a two-run homer and Jay Bruce emerged from a slump by driving in a pair of runs on Tuesday night, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a season-high fourth win in a row with an 8-3 victory over the San Francisco Giants. Mesoraco hit his ninth homerun off Tim Lincecum, who has beaten the Reds during the playoffs but never during the regular season. Bruce, who spent time on the disabled list following surgery for torn knee cartilage, knocked in his first run since April 25. Homer Bailey went six innings in his first game against the Giants since his no-hitter against them last July at Great American Ball Park. The right-hander gave up three runs, five hits and struck out seven to pick up his 6th win of the year. The Reds will look to make it five in-a-row tonight when they send Tony Cingrani to the mound. The game can be heard live on 970WATH and 97.1FM with pre game set for 6:40 and the first pitch at 7:10.
Joey Votto will go through a full workout with the team on Tuesday. Votto says that his quad feels good, but the Reds haven’t decided on the next step. It’s possible they’ll send him out on a brief minor league rehab assignment before bringing him back from the disabled list.
Michael Bourn hit a two-run double in the seventh inning to break a tie and the Cleveland Indians won their season-high fifth straight with a 5-3 victory over the Boston Red Sox last night. Bourn’s double off Andrew Miller snapped a 3-all tie and sent the Red Sox to their second straight loss after winning seven consecutive games.
