Ludwick singles Reds to victory in the 14th - Cincinnati News, FOX19-WXIX TV

Reds win in walkoff after 14-inning marathon

Posted: Updated:

The Cincinnati Reds defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-3 after 14 long innings at Great American Ball Park Monday night and Tuesday morning.

The game, which lasted almost 5 1/2 hours, came to an end when Ryan Ludwick hit a bases-loaded infield single to shortstop in the bottom of the 14th inning.

After the Reds reached a 3-3 tie by scoring 2 runs in the bottom of the 7th inning, the teams went scoreless inning after inning, 6 innings in a row.  Each team had many chances to win, with 2 or three runners left on in multiple innings, including the scoreless 10th, when Aroldis Chapman left the game with bases loaded.

In the top of the 14th, Pittsburgh loaded the bases with no one out, when the Reds turned tough and put out three in a row.

Alfredo Simon (3-2) won the game in relief.
