Reds rally in ninth for 3-2 win over Astros

By JOE KAY, AP Baseball Writer

CINCINNATI (AP)—All the Reds had to show for a long, cold afternoon was one hit heading into their final at-bat. Five batters later, they were celebrating on the infield.

Jay Bruce(notes) pulled a double just inside first base, completing Cincinnati’s three-run rally off closer Brandon Lyon in the ninth inning Wednesday for a 3-2 victory over the Houston Astros that left everyone stunned.

“It’s hard to believe we had one hit and came back to win,” said Chris Heisey, who singled during the rally.

Lyon (3-2) came on to try to finish off the one-hitter, but failed to retire any of the five batters he faced while blowing a save for the fourth time in eight chances. It started badly—he walked Drew Stubbs on four pitches. Then, it got worse with each batter.

Heisey and Joey Votto singled to bring Stubbs home, and Brandon Phillips tied it with another single to the opposite field. Bruce then pulled a pitch down the line for Cincinnati’s third game-ending hit of the season.
