Posted April 06, 2013 on AP on Fox
Ian Desmond made two errors at shortstop that helped the Cincinnati Reds send the game to extra innings, then led off the 11th with his first homer of the season to rally the Washington Nationals to a 7-6 victory Saturday. The Nationals were coming off a 15-0 loss in the series opener, their most lopsided defeat since baseball returned to Washington in 2005. The Reds hit six homers in that one. Washington got the better of it this time, hitting five homers to Cincinnati's one. The teams have combined for 12 homers, accounting for 20 of the 28 runs in the series. Wilson Ramos hit two for the Nationals, including a solo shot off J.J. Hoover (0-2) in the 11th. Desmond's errors helped the Reds rally from a 5-1 deficit.
