CINCINNATI -- The D-backs were wise to what the Reds were thinking in the first inning on Saturday night with Billy Hamilton on third base. They stopped a double-steal attempt and even caught Hamilton in a rundown as Joey Votto broke from first base to steal second base. However, Hamilton was fast enough to scamper back and that opened the door for trouble.
The Reds went on to score three runs in that inning, on the road for a 6-1 victory over the D-backs, assuring them of their third-straight series win. More >
