DENVER (AP) - The Cincinnati Reds took advantage of a poor defensive play by Colorado on Joey Votto's single in the sixth Friday night and rallied for four runs to beat the Rockies 4-1, ending a 10-game losing streak at Coors Field.
Homer Bailey, who won for the first time in five starts since Aug. 13, allowed one run in 7 2-3 innings as the Reds won for the first time since Aug. 23, 2008, at Coors Field.
The Reds scored twice after right fielder Seth Smith and shortstop Chris Nelson made errors on Votto's single that allowed one run to score in the sixth. They followed that miscue with two walks, and scored two runs on a single by Ryan Hanigan and another on Paul Janish's single.
