Dunn, Reds Sweep Indians

The Cincinnati Reds swept the Cleveland Indians in a three game series this weekend in Cincinnati at Great American Ballpark. 

The Reds beat the Tribe on Friday 4-3, 4-2 Saturday, and 6-4 to conclude the series on Sunday. 

Former Dayton Dragons player, Reds left fielder Adam Dunn was the star in the series having a home run in each game.  He was a big contributor for Cincinnati in all 3 games.  On Friday, Dunn had the bases-loaded go-ahead walk for the Reds in their 4-3 victory.  On Saturday when they were down 2-1 in the bottom of the 9th inning, Dunn hit the game winning 3 run homer to make it 4-2.  Dunn has continuted his streak of 4 straight games with a home run.  The streak of 4 straight games with a home run matches his career high of home runs when he did it in August 2004 and June 2006.

The 21-23 Cincinnati Reds are on a 6 game winning streak and have swept Florida and Cleveland in their 6 game homestand.  Not only did they sweep Cleveland, but they are no longer in last place in the division and have their longest winning streak of the season. 

The Cincinnati Reds will now have to keep the winning streak alive and test it out on the road as they head out to southern California this week and begin their 7 game road stand.  They take on Los Angeles Dodgers in 3 games starting Monday night at 10:10PM and then move on to play a 4 game series with San Diego.
