Cincinnati Reds' Ryan Ludwick hits a solo home run

Arroyo gem puts Reds up 2-0 on Giants in NLDS

SAN FRANCISCO — Bronson Arroyo retired his first 14 batters and delivered a gem a day after 19-game winner Johnny Cueto went down with a back injury, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the San Francisco Giants 9-0 on Sunday night to head home with a 2-0 division series lead.

A pair of Ryans provided the big hits. Ryan Ludwick homered leading off the second inning for his first career playoff clout and Ryan Hanigan hit a two-run single in the fourth and a late RBI single. Jay Bruce added a two-run double and Joey Votto had three hits.

Former San Francisco skipper Dusty Baker came into his old stomping grounds and left with two commanding victories 10 years after managing the Giants within six outs of a World Series title.
