Brandon Phillips and Jay Bruce hit homers to put Reds on top. Buster Posey responds in the sixth to put the Giants on the scoreboard. In the end, the Reds held on, 5-2.
Reds starter Johnny Cueto left the game in the 1st with back spasms. As if losing your ace is not bad enough news already, Game 3 starter Mat Latos has pitched four innings in relief and has looked pretty good.
FINAL: Reds 5-2 Giants
