Indians outslug Reds 10-9
Loss ended Reds six-game winning streak
Lonnie Chisenhall and Casey Kotchman had three RBIs apiece as the Cleveland Indians ended Cincinnati’s six-game winning streak with a 10-9 win over the Reds on Monday night.
Chisenhall and Kotchman hit two-run homers, and both drove in runs in the sixth inning off Sam LeCure (2-2) as Cleveland snapped a 7-7 tie.
Shin-Soo Choo homered for the Indians.
The ongoing feud between Indians pitcher Derek Lowe and Reds manager Dusty Baker didn’t worsen. The pair behaved less than a week after exchanging ugly comments following a game.
Joey Votto and Jay Bruce homered for the Reds, who swept a three-game series from Ohio’s other major leaguers last week.
Joe Smith (5-1) replaced an ineffective Lowe in the sixth. Chris Perez worked the for his 22nd straight save.
