Latos' gem, first Reds win backed by bats
 
Quote:

Mat Latos wasn't about to let his best start of this short season -- and first win as a Red -- get away from him. Not without a big fight.

The Reds coasted to a 9-2 victory over the Giants on Tuesday, but things were plenty tense during a long sixth inning. Clinging to a 2-0 lead with two outs, Latos had been very strong up to that point. But before he knew it, he was battling through a 37-pitch inning and had a two-out, bases-loaded rally on his hands.

But Latos threw a 2-1 fastball to Nate Schierholtz and got a routine grounder to Brandon Phillips, who stepped on second base for the third out. The right-hander was pumped as he returned to the dugout.

"I can be emotional sometimes," Latos said. "I was excited to get out of that inning without giving up a run. It was a 2-0 ballgame at that point. That's a big inning. I get out of that and everybody can exhale. I just wanted to let it all out. I was fired up to get that out."
