MLB: Cincinnati 5, Atlanta 4

May 7, 2013 at 11:45 PM   |   Comments

CINCINNATI, May 7 (UPI) -- Devin Mesoraco and Shin-Soo Choo smacked back-to-back homers in the bottom of the ninth inning Tuesday, rallying the Cincinnati Reds over Atlanta 5-4.

With the Reds trailing 4-3 and down to their final out in the ninth, Mesoraco entered the game as a pinch-hitter and blasted a score-tying solo shot against Braves closer Craig Kimbrel (0-1).

That brought up Choo, who followed with his second round-tripper of the contest. The clout handed the Reds a comeback win and evened their three-game series against the Braves.

Jonathan Broxton (1-1) earned the decision after recording a scoreless top of the ninth.

Brian McCann drove in a pair of runs for Atlanta, who had won two straight coming into the game.
