Cairo, Janish help Reds down D'Backs

Apr 21, 2011 - 9:42 PM Cincinnati, OH (Sports Network) - Miguel Cairo and Paul Janish each knocked in a pair of runs, as the Cincinnati Reds snapped a four-game slide with a 7-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks in the finale of a three-game set at Great American Ball Park.

Joey Votto hit a solo homer and Ramon Hernandez went 2-for-3 with a run- scoring double for the Reds, who had dropped six of seven coming into the contest.

Mike Leake (3-0) worked seven quality innings, allowing three runs on four hits with two walks and six strikeouts. The 24-year-old made his scheduled start despite his arrest on Monday for an alleged shoplifting incident at a downtown Cincinnati Macy's department store.

"I'll be better once it's all done," Leake said about his legal situation. "Right now I just have to eat it and just go out there and do what I can for the team."

Stephen Drew clubbed a solo homer and drove in two, while Kelly Johnson also homered for Arizona, which had a three-game winning streak halted.

Daniel Hudson (0-4) was roughed up for seven runs on five hits and four walks in 5 1/3 innings. The right-hander struck out three and also drove in a run.

"I saw him kick the mound one time. Just trying too hard. He's got good stuff. Was unable to locate like he wanted to," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said about Hudson.

Drew's two-out run-scoring single in the first gave Arizona the early lead, but the Reds answered with four in the home half.

With the bases loaded and one out, Jay Bruce drew a walk to force in a run and Cairo singled through the left side to plate two more. Later in the inning with the bases loaded again, Janish worked a free pass to make it a 4-1 game. Leake bounced into a 6-4-3 double play to end the inning.

Arizona put men on the corners with one out in the second and Hudson's safety squeeze bunt brought in a run.

Leake settled down to retire eight in a row before Johnson belted a one-out solo homer to right in the fifth to cut the Diamondbacks' deficit to 4-3.

Meanwhile, Hudson retired 12 straight after a shaky start, but Votto snapped that string with a shot into the right-field seats with two outs in the fifth.

Hernandez's RBI double high off the left-field wall and a run-scoring single by Janish in the seventh, put the Reds up 7-3.

Logan Ondrusek worked a perfect eighth and Francisco Cordero served up a leadoff homer to Drew in the ninth, then fanned the next two batters before Gerard Parra singled to center. Pinch-hitter Miguel Montero walked, but pinch-hitter Russell Branyan grounded out to second to end the game.
