CINCINNATI – Shin-Soo Choo's two-out single in the 11th inning drove in Todd Frazier from second base, lifting the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-2 win over the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday night.
Frazier walked to lead off the 11th against Javier Lopez (1-1) and went to second on Chris Heisey's sacrifice. After Devin Mesoraco was intentionally walked, pinch-hitter Ryan Hanigan popped out before Choo came up with the hit that gave the Reds three straight wins for the first time since June 10-12 against the Cubs.
J.J. Hoover (2-5), Cincinnati's seventh pitcher of the game, struck out four batters in two innings for the win.
The spiraling Giants have lost nine of their last 10 games.
