Giants and Reds head to extra innings in NLDS Game 3

The Reds scored one run on a Jay Bruce RBI single in the bottom of the first inning and San Francisco answered back on a sacrifice fly from Angel Pagan in the top of the third. But that’s where the scoring summary stops through nine innings of this NLDS Game 3 at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati.

Reds starter Homer Bailey carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning and wound up fanning a career-high-matching 10 batters over seven dominant frames. Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong was plenty sharp in his own right, allowing just three hits in five innings.

And both bullpens have been excellent since those two starting pitchers were pulled.

It’s all tied 1-1 as we move to the top of the 10th inning. The Reds lead the five-game series 2-0.

    Good thing the Giants told Melky to stay home….they have plenty of offense without him.

    It’s not like melky would have been available unless they went 5 games
    anyways.

    Chappy came in and did his thing, then Brox the Cable Guy had a rough inning, so close but lost the game in the end.

    Dusty has said in post game that he would not have kept Chappy in for 2, looking ahead to possible upcoming games. There is also talk in media of Leake coming on for game 4, but that would mean Cueto is dropped from this series roster. Plenty of drama to come.
