Posted: Updated:

The Cincinnati Reds scored again and again while starter Bronson Arroyo allowed only two men on base as the Reds beat the San Francisco Giants for the second night in a row in the National League Division Series.  The Reds won 9-0. 

Arroyo allowed one hit in the 5th and one two-out walk in the 7th; those were the only chances the Giants had in his 7 innings. 

Multiple Reds shared offensive honors: Brandon Phillips went 2 for 5 with one RBI.  Joey Votto scored twice while getting 3 hits in 4 at-bats.  Jason Ludwick went 2 for 3 and drew a walk while scoring twice, once on a leadoff solo home run in the second, which was the Reds first run, and as it turns out was also the winning run. 

Jay Bruce got 2 RBI's on a single and went on to score himself.  Ryan Hanigan went 2 for 4 with, driving in 3 of the Reds runs and scoring one run himself. Drew Stubbs joined in late in the game with an RBI triple, and then scored a run of his own.  The Reds' 9 runs came on 13 hits. 

The Giants managed a rally of sorts in the bottom of the 9th, putting men on 1st and 3rd with two outs off reliever Jose Arredondo, before the game ended on a ground out.

The Reds are returning home for the third game against the Giants on Tuesday.  The first pitch will be at 5:37 p.m.
