CINCINNATI (AP) - Laynce Nix singled home the tiebreaking run in
the sixth inning Saturday night and came around to score on a
jarring dive into home, rallying the first-place Cincinnati Reds to
their fifth straight win, 6-4 over the free-falling Cleveland
Nix's single off Justin Masterson (2-7) was the turning point in
a ragged game on a hot, humid night.
Cleveland has lost a season-high seven in a row and 11 of 12,
falling a season-low 21 games under .500. The Indians have the
third-worst record in the majors at 26-47, on pace to lose 100
games only three years after they won the AL Central and came
within one victory of the World Series.
