Cincinnati Reds scored early in this game and I have to say it was the best first inning of play I have seen the Reds play in a very long time. Great patience at the plate by some guys that usually go up to bat swinging. Great game to watch and I really enjoyed watching Mike Leake pitch today, he was locating his pitches very nice and that low strike was really working well for him.
Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips extended their hitting streaks and Todd Frazier went 2 for 4 while Devin Mesoraco got a nice home run in the 9th inning.
Last year on May 21 Mike Leake won against Atlanta Braves in Great American Ball Park 4-1.
