Mike Leake combined with four relievers on a six-hitter as the Reds shut out the Cubs 6-0 at Great American Ball Park. Devin Mesoraco went 3-for-4 with a home run and Jack Hannahan added a three-run, pinch-hit shot for Cincinnati, which salvaged the finale of the three-game series. Leake allowed four hits and four walks over five-and-two-thirds innings to improve to 13-and-6. Jeff Samardzija gave up all six runs in less than six innings to fall to 8-and-12 for Chicago. Nate Schierholtz and Junior Lake each had doubles for the Cubs' only extra-base hits.
The Cubs will be in Pittsburgh tonight.
