Giambi homers as Indians beat Reds

Giambi homers as Indians beat Reds

CLEVELAND -- Justin Masterson pitched six solid innings, Jason Giambi and Mark Reynolds homered, and the Cleveland Indians broke a five-game losing streak with a 5-2 win over the Cincinnati Redson Wednesday night.

Masterson (8-3) worked out of a bases-loaded jam with nobody out in the sixth to preserve a 2-1 lead. Cincinnati's only run off the right-hander came on Joey Votto's two-out homer in the first.

Giambi's three-run homer in the sixth off Bronson Arroyo(5-5) pushed the margin to four runs for Cleveland, which scored only 14 runs during the skid.

Reynolds' homer to lead off the third tied the game before Nick Swisher's RBI double gave the Indians a 2-1 lead in the fourth.
