Giants and Reds head to extra innings in NLDS Game 3

4 Comments

The Reds scored one run on a Jay Bruce RBI single in the bottom of the first inning and San Francisco answered back on a sacrifice fly from Angel Pagan in the top of the third. But that’s where the scoring summary stops through nine innings of this NLDS Game 3 at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati.

Reds starter Homer Bailey carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning and wound up fanning a career-high-matching 10 batters over seven dominant frames. Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong was plenty sharp in his own right, allowing just three hits in five innings.

And both bullpens have been excellent since those two starting pitchers were pulled.

It’s all tied 1-1 as we move to the top of the 10th inning. The Reds lead the five-game series 2-0.
