Reds Win A Big One

Yep, it's just one game. But the Cincinnati Reds had just lost six games. The Philadelphia Phillies had owned the Reds. It was quite possible that the Phillies would take all four games in this series. But Reds starting pitcher Johnny Cueto held on and gave the Reds six innings, giving up three runs and keeping the team in the game.

But it was in the ninth inning and the Reds finally had a clutch hit. Now folks, the Reds have been known for late inning heroics and clutch hitting. It's just that the Reds have been struggling. Reds up. Two outs. Bases loaded. Reds outfielder Jay Bruce blasted a three run double. Francisco Cordero saves the game. Reds win 6-3.

It was a big win. The Reds stopped a losing streak. They are resilient. They will win the NL Central Division. Here's the story with video.
