Bailey, Reds snap skids with win over Padres

SAN DIEGO (AP) ― Homer Bailey gave the struggling Cincinnati Reds exactly what they needed.

The right-hander came within two outs of a five-hit shutout to end his four-start losing streak and the Reds beat the San Diego Padres 4-1 Wednesday to snap a five-game skid.

Brandon Phillips homered and Joey Votto hit a two-run double for the Reds, who avoided a three-game sweep and ended San Diego’s four-game winning streak.

“Before the game I said the law of averages were on our side to win on the road, and for Homer to win,” manager Dusty Baker said. “It’s been a long time since he’s won. There were some big hits that we got today that we have been missing the past few days.

“It’s great to have a great flight home, have a great day off and sort of take it easy and lick our wounds, so to speak, and get back at it again,” Baker said.

The performance by Bailey was just what the Reds needed to end a 10-game West Coast trip on a positive note.

Yankees 3, Dodgers 0

LOS ANGELES (AP) ― Pinch-hitter Lyle Overbay singled in the go-ahead run with two outs in the top of the ninth inning, helping the New York Yankees to a 3-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night.

Overbay, who drove in both New York runs in a 3-2 loss on Tuesday, singled on a 1-2 pitch from Paco Rodriguez (2-3). Robinson Cano scored after reaching on a fielder’s choice groundout.

The Yankees added two more runs on an error by Dodgers second baseman Mark Ellis, whose two-out RBI single drove in the winning run Tuesday.

Ichiro Suzuki and Overbay scored when Ellis dropped a fly ball by Jayson Nix in shallow right field.

Boone Logan (3-2) got the win in relief. Mariano Rivera pitched the ninth to earn his 34th save in 36 chances in his farewell season.
