Reds unravel in costly 7th against Phillies

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The Reds lead disappeared in the seventh inning at 100 mph.

Cincinnati became unglued in Game 2 of the NL division series against the Philadelphia Philllies -- with Aroldis Chapman on the mound. The rookie was supposed to preserve a one-run lead with his triple-digit fastball and send the Reds back to Cincinnati with the best-of-five series tied.


They go back now trying to stave off elimination.

Right fielder Jay Bruce missed a catchable line drive that led to the Phillies scoring the go-ahead runs in the seventh inning and rally to beat the Reds 7-4 on Friday night.
