Braves Beat Reds in 10th

ATLANTA (AP) - Freddie Freeman's single to the center-field wall scored Jason Heyward from second base with two outs in the 10th inning on Sunday, lifting the Atlanta Braves to a 1-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds.

Cincinnati's Johnny Cueto and Atlanta's Julio Teheran each allowed only three hits in eight scoreless innings before giving way to relievers.

With two outs in the 10th, Heyward hit a single up the middle off J.J. Hoover (1-3). B.J. Upton followed with a grounder that bounced off Hoover's glove toward shortstop for an infield hit.

Left-hander Manny Parra was summoned to face Freeman, who hit a drive that bounced on the warning track beyond center fielder Billy Hamilton's reach.

Cincinnati manager Bryan Price and pitcher Homer Bailey were ejected in the first inning of Sunday's game against Atlanta after a replay ruling went against them.

Price asked for a replay after first-base umpire Greg Gibson called Atlanta's B.J. Upton safe on a pickoff throw from pitcher Johnny Cueto. The replays shown on the video board indicated first baseman Joey Votto may have applied the tag before Upton reached the bag.

Price came back out of the dugout after the umpires ruled the play stands, meaning there was not "clear and convincing" evidence to overturn it. Price was ejected by crew chief Bill Miller, the second-base umpire. Miller also tossed Bailey, who argued from the Reds' dugout.
The ejections were the first for the Reds since Brandon Phillips on Sept. 1, 2012, at Houston. The last Reds manager to be ejected was Dusty Baker on Aug. 28, 2011.
