Big inning helps Reds beat White Sox 7-4
(CINCINNATI) - Fitting for Independence Day, the Cincinnati Reds saved all their fireworks for the fourth. Starting pitcher Sal Romano's suicide squeeze capped Cincinnati's six-run fourth inning, and the Reds rallied to beat the Chicago White Sox 7-4 on Wednesday night. Jesse Winker and Jose Peraza each had a two-run single during the big inning, and Scooter Gennett also singled in a run. The Reds overcame Daniel Palka's third home run in two games to win the three-game series and complete a 4-3 homestand. The Reds have won 13 of 17 and have come from behind in eight of their last 11 wins. Yoan Moncada added a two-run homer for the White Sox, who have dropped five of seven and 14 of 20. Cincinnati improved to 8-2 in interleague play, the most wins since going 11-9 in 2013. The White Sox are 4-11 against NL teams. Romano (5-8) struck out six and allowing six hits and four runs in five innings. His bunt back to the mound brought home Adam Duvall for the final run of Cincinnati's breakout fourth inning. Reds relievers Amir Garrett and Michael Lorenzen teamed up for 2 1/3 scoreless innings before Jared Hughes celebrated his 33rd birthday by pitching the final 1 2/3 for his sixth save. Dylan Covey retired his first nine batters before the Reds erupted for five hits and six runs while sending 10 batters to the plate in the fourth. Winker and Peraza each had a two-run single before Romano's bunt knocked Covey (3-4) out of the game. Covey allowed a walk, struck out two and hit a batter in 3 2/3 innings.
