Giants have lead on Reds in the middle of NLDS Game 4

10 Comments

There’s a bullpen game underway in Cincinnati.

Giants starter Barry Zito lasted just 2 2/3 innings, allowing two earned runs on four hits and two walks.

Reds starter Mike Leake was lifted in the fifth after yielding three earned runs on six hits and two walks.

Tim Lincecum is in — and on a sort of roll — for the Giants and Sam LeCure came on in relief of Leake.

San Francisco has a 5-2 lead at a sunny Great American Ball Park as this NLDS Game 4 moves along to the top of the sixth inning. The Reds lead the five-game series 2-1 after sweeping the first two games and then losing in Game 3 on Tuesday evening.
