Late inning comebacks
Game of the Day
The Reds scored all their runs in the bottom of the eighth to beat the Astros 4-3 and move within two games of the N.L. Central lead. They key hit was a three-run home run by Rich Aurilia off of Chad Qualls. The Astros have lost eight of their last ten games.
It's the fifth time this season that the Reds have won when trailing by at least three in the eighth or later. The only major league team to do that even half as often as the Reds this year is the Padres, who have three wins when trailing by at least three in the eighth or later. The Reds also tied a team record in that category, set in 2000.
