Reds Lose 4th Straight

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Garrett Jones singled off the wall in

right-center with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of

the ninth as the Pittsburgh Pirates came from behind against closer

Francisco Cordero to beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-4 on Saturday


Jones' hit - which snapped an 0-for-8 stretch for him - on a 3-2

pitch came just after Lastings Milledge drew a bases-loaded walk

off Cordero on a 3-2 pitch with two outs to tie the game.

Milledge had two RBIs and Ronny Cedeno hit his first home run

for the Pirates, who won consecutive games for the first time since

starting 2-0.

Joey Votto had three hits and scored two runs for Cincinnati,

which has lost four in a row.

It was Cordero's first blown save in five opportunities.
