Reds 5, Cubs 3
Sometimes a win is so sweet because of how hard the loss would have been.
That was case Monday night.
"That's a good game to win," Dusty Baker said. "It would have been devastating to lose."
Francisco Cordero had about as rough an inning as you can possibly have without giving up a run. But he got the save and the Reds five-game losing streak is over.
"It got a little edgy at the end," Adam Dunn said. "But I don't care how we win as long as we win."
Johnny Cueto bounced back from his debacle in St. Louis with a solid start. He went six innings, allowing three runs on six hits. He struck eight and walked two.
Let's if the Reds can build on it tomorrow. It's Carlos Zambrano v. Aaron Harang.
