Mesoraco, Hannahan power Reds to 6-0 win over Cubs

Posted: Updated:

CINCINNATI (AP) - Devin Mesoraco hit his first home run in more than a month and Jack Hannahan added his first career pinch-hit homer as the Cincinnati Reds avoided being swept by the last-place Chicago Cubs with a 6-0 win on Wednesday.

Mesoraco, hitless in his previous 13 at bats, collected three to lead the Reds to their seventh win on a 10-game home stand. It included a 3-1 record against St. Louis and 3-game sweep of NL West Division-leading Los Angeles.

Cincinnati went into the game in third place in the Central, three games behind the division-leading Cardinals and two behind Pittsburgh.

After winning the first two games of the 3-game series, the Cubs were in position for their first sweep of the Reds in Cincinnati since May 2001.
