Homer Bailey delivered a complete game shutout and Billy Hamilton came up with a clutch RBI double in the Reds 4-0 win over the Giants Sunday. Cincinnati earned a four-game sweep in San Francisco for the first time since 1972, and became the first team in the majors to sweep the Giants in a four-game series at AT&T Park.
Bailey was poised to throw his second no-hitter against the Giants in two years until Buster Posey broke up that storyline with a single to right in the bottom of the seventh inning. Bailey (8-4, 4.39 ERA) struck out seven and surrendered just three hits in his first complete game outing of the season.
"I had pretty good stuff today," said Bailey. "We tried to be aggressive, we had a lot of early outs and my pitch count was low all day. Two years ago, we were labeled as [a team with] the west coast swing being a downfall, I think we've shut people up about that."
Billy Hamilton got the scoring started in the third with an RBI double scoring Skip Schumaker to make it 1-0 Reds. Cincinnati has now struck first in 15 of their last 18 games. The Reds would add some insurance in the ninth with runs driven in by Brandon Phillips, Brayan Pena and Schumaker.
"The big thing is the fact that we're playing much better baseball," said Reds manager Bryan Price. "We have a palpable feeling of expecting to win. This series was indicative of what we really need to do to be successful. The ability to create separation completely changes what the opposing team can do. We've taken advantage of this road trip."
At the halfway point of the season, the Reds are five games above .500 and riding a five-game winning streak, their longest of the season. Cincinnati travels to San Diego Monday for a three-game set with the Padres.
