Reds Rally; Clinch First Round Home Field

Posted: Updated:

A ninth inning Reds rally in Pittsburgh clinched first round home field advantage for Cincinnati.

Xavier Paul hit a solo home run off Pittsburgh closer Joel Hanrahan and the Reds added a go-ahead run to beat Pittsburgh, 4-3.

Aroldis Chapman worked around a hit and two walks to pick up the save, but starting pitcher Johnny Cueto did not win his 20th game of the season.

The clinched, at worst, the two seed in the National League playoffs, but could still claim the top seed the final three games.
