Reds complete 2nd big comeback of week

CINCINNATI (AP) - Brayan Pena's pinch-hit single in the eighth inning completed another late rally by the Reds, who overcame more injuries last night and beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-5 to keep their momentum going toward the All-Star break.

Down 5-1 after six innings, the Reds scored twice with the help of third baseman Pedro Alvarez's throwing error in the seventh and added three more in the eighth. Devin Mesoraco homered with two outs off left-hander Tony Watson (5-1) in the eighth, and the Reds put together four more singles, with RBI hits by Ramon Santiago and Pena completing Cincinnati's second big comeback of the week.
