An R-B-I single in the bottom of the 12th inning off the bat of Alex Gonzalez gave the Cincinnati Reds a 1-to-0 victory over the Cleveland Indians. It was the second consecutive extra-inning game between the two Ohio rivals. The Indians won 8-to-6 in eleven innings last night.
Marcus McBeth got a win in his first big league decision thanks
in large part to Josh Hamilton's defense. The Reds center fielder
threw out a runner at the plate in the top of the 12th. McBeth
pitched two hitless innings.
Aaron Fultz took the loss, dropping to 3-and-1.
Cincinnati starter Aaron Harang (huh-RANG') held the Indians in
check for seven innings.
Cleveland starter C.C Sabathia (sah-BATH'-ee-uh), who was
bidding to become the majors' first ten-game winner, shut down the
Reds through nine innings on three hits and one walk.
