Over 130,000 fans came to Great American for a four game, three day series against the Cubs, and the Reds capped it off with some ninth inning magic thanks to Xavier Paul and Ryan Hanigan.
Mat Latos pitched an amazing game, giving up only 6 hits in 8 innings, 4 runs (two earned) and striking out 6 and also getting an RBI single.
- Xavier Paul had a pinch hit triple to lead off the bottom of the 9th. About as an exciting of a hit that I've seen from the Reds in a few weeks.
- Mat Latos continues to be a great investment, throwing 114 pitches in 8 innings, but failing to get the win. His line actually looks worse than how he pitched, only two of the runs given up while Latos was on the mound were earned.
- The most under rated player in baseball Ryan Hanigan also had a great day, with a few amazing defensive plays and getting 2 RBI's on 2 hits, including driving in the winning run in the bottom of the 9th. He's now hitting .284
- Zack Cozart got it done ...
