#REDS WIN! BEAT THE INDIANS 5-3
Mat Latos (5-2) scattered 7 hits and gave up just 2 runs in 7.0 innings (1bb, 7k); Brandon Phillips went 3-for-3 with a home run, 3 RBI and 2 runs scored as the Reds defeated the Indians Wednesday night 5-3. Joey Votto had a pair of hits (1r, 1bb) and Aroldis Chapman notched his 7th save (1hr, 1k).
The Orioles defeated the Pirates Wednesday night, 7-1, giving the Reds a 2.0 game first-place cushion in the NL Central.
The Reds attempt the 3-game sweep of the Tribe Thursday afternoon. First pitch is slated for 12:35pm and the game will be televised on FS Ohio….however, we’d rather you see it live at Great American Ball Park. Plenty of tickets still available. After Thursday’s game, the Reds hit the road for a 6-game trip to New York (Mets) and Cleveland.
