Homer Bailey struggled in the first two innings of the game as the Reds fell down 2-1 going into the sixth. Rookie Shortstop Zack Cozart then injured his left elbow on a play at second and was taken out of the game. The veteran Edgar Renteria came in to replace him and helped carry the Reds offense to score 10 unanswered runs in an 11-2 win.
Dontrelle Willis will be on the mound for the Reds on Sunday Night Baseball in the rubber match of the series. Willis has pitched very well in his first two starts but has lacked the run support needed to get his first win.
