    Game 116 Recap: McCutchen Does Everything

    Game 96 Recap: Weak Bats, Shaky Defense Prove Costly

    Cincinnati took advantage of two errors by Chase D’Arnaud and Johnny Cueto was effective again as the Reds managed to take the last game in a three game set. Jeff Karstens was on the losing side despite pitching well once again. The Reds scored their first run of the series in the...
