Dusty Baker was thrilled after the win - for the team, for Edwin Encarnacion, and for Aaron Harang.
He was asked about the back-to-back Encarnacion-Paul Bako homers that set up Ken Griffey Jr.'s game-winning RBI-single.
“Everyone knows lightning doesn’t strike twice, but it struck twice today. In the rain and everything. Man, that’s wonderful,” Baker said.
Baker hopes the victory will jumpstart the Reds. It was a key win - averting an eighth loss in nine outings and a 7-12 start. The Reds approach the Dodgers at 8-11.
"I just want to enjoy this one today. I’ll tell you, what a game. What an exciting ballgame. I’m just happy."
