Reds down Nats on Cairo's walkoff single

Miguel Cairo knocked in the winning run in center field gap to 3 win over the Washington Nationals in the game series at Great American Ball Park.

Drew Stubbs ripped a one-out single off Collin Balester (1-2) to begin the rally and Todd Frazier followed with a single of his own to put the winning run in scoring position and set the stage for Cairo's walkoff winner.

Francisco Cordero (5-3) allowed a runner to reach second in the top of the ninth, but worked out of trouble to earn the win.

Starter Dontrelle Willis worked seven innings in a no-decision, but collected three hits for the Reds, who have won 10 of their last 15 games.
