Reds Reds walk off on Stubbs' ninth-inning dinger

Quote:
A two-game winning streak is as modest as those kinds of streaks go, but the Reds were starving for just that. Drew Stubbs finally made it happen with one swing in the ninth inning.

On the first pitch from Braves reliever Scott Linebrink, Stubbs led off the bottom of the ninth with an opposite field drive into the right-field seats for a walk-off home run and a thrilling 4-3 Reds victory on Sunday night. Winning the last two games of the weekend gave Cincinnati the three-game series and consecutive victories for the first time in 31 games.

"All I can say is OMG! It feels good to finally get back-to-back wins," said Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips, who hit a two-run homer in the first inning. "The way we did it, we're used to doing that. I heard it was since June. That's crazy."

Crazy, but true. The scuffling 50-51 Reds hadn't strung at least two wins together since June 13-15, when they swept a three-game series from the Dodgers.

"I honestly wasn't aware of it until everybody kept talking about it," Stubbs said. "We knew we hadn't played our best baseball so far this year. We definitely have the pieces of the puzzle to make a run. Hopefully this series win can be a spark for us to get hot in the future."

With the Pirates beating the Cardinals and the Giants beating the Brewers earlier in the day, a three-way tie for first place exists in the National League Central. The Reds moved up to three games back -- easy striking distance if they can a more significant winning streak going.

"We're right where we need to be," Stubbs said. "It's going to be a dogfight to the end of this thing. I don't think any team is going to run away with it."

Linebrink pitches 1 pitch to Stubbs and it was the wrong pitch as Stubbs smacks it out over the right field fence.

We had a guy on here his name was NashvilleJohn and he was a big Reds fan. He had a lot of high hops for this season. Having MLB TV I have watched about 15 Reds game this year and is there pitching is just terrible. At one point in the season they had almost a 2 week stretch where they did not have a starter make it out of the 5th. I like the Reds but they are a disappointment to me this year. I had them winning that division again.

Dontrelle Willis pitched really well last night. He may help the Reds staff out.
