Reds move into 1st, Indians win 3rd straight

The Cincinnati Reds have been playing solid baseball all season and now it seems that the Cleveland Indians are on-track too. As the Reds solved Astros ace Roy Oswalt for the first time in 16 decisions (yes, Oswalt is now 15-1 against the Reds with today's loss), their 5-4 win over Houston was their 5th straight win sending Cincinnati (16-7) into 1st place all by themselves in the NL Central. Meanwhile, the Indians return home has proved to be a successful one as the Tribe had won two consecutive games over the Boston Red Sox before tonight's match-up with the Texas Rangers. As most over Northeast Ohio witnessed the Tribe on SportsTime Ohio tonight, they saw the Indians (13-10) get their 3rd straight win beating Texas 7-6.

Reds & Indians Notes:
- Reds 2B Brandon Phillips, the former Indians 2B/SS who won the NL Player of the Week last week, went 3-4 tonight with 2 runs scored and 2 RBI.
- Brandon Claussen picked up the win for the Reds with David Weathers getting his 7th save despite a rought 9th inning.
- Indians LF Jason Michaels went 3-5 with 2 runs scored and 2 RBI and Eduardo Perez drove in 2 runs as well.
- Bob Wickman picked up save #5 with Jason Davis getting the win in relief.
