CINCINNATI (AP) â€” Mike Leake snapped his three-start losing streak and drove in a run, Drew Stubbs homered and the Cincinnati Reds moved back into a tie for the NL Central lead by beating the Florida Marlins 5-4 Saturday night.
The Reds went into the game knowing division-leading St. Louis had lost to Chicago. The last few innings of that game were shown on the scoreboard at Great American Ball Park, with fans groaning at every Chicago miscue and cheering as the Cubs wrapped up their 3-2 win.
Leake (8-4) allowed runners to reach second base in every one of his six innings, but he was hurt only on homers by Dan Uggla and Wes Helms. The rookie right-hander gave up six hits and three runs with three walks and six strikeouts.
