Reds come out swinging to pound Giants again
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Devin Mesoraco had a three-run homer among his three hits for his second longball in as many games, Joey Votto and Zack Cozart also connected, and the Cincinnati Reds pounded the San Francisco Giants for the second straight game with a 9-3 win Tuesday in the opener of a traditional doubleheader.
Cozart finished 4 for 4 with two RBIs and three runs to back Tony Cingrani (4-1). The left-hander was added to the roster as the Reds' permitted 26th player for the doubleheader. He headed back to the Arizona Rookie League after the game to fulfill the final five days required after being optioned previously to the minors. He could return to start Sunday for Cincinnati.
The Reds finished with 15 hits for 32 total in the first two games of the series.
