Reds send Pirates to 5th straight loss 5-3

Posted: Updated:
CINCINNATI (AP) -

Mike Leake pitched seven innings, had a pair of hits and scored on a dash home off a wild pitch Tuesday night, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 5-3 victory over the fading Pittsburgh Pirates.
    
Both teams were recovering from their 5-hour, 22-minute game on Monday night, won by the Reds 4-3 in 14 innings.
    
Leake (8-9) gave up Alex Presley's solo homer and pinch-hitter Gaby Sanchez's two-run shot. The Reds pitcher singled and scored during a decisive three-run second inning off Kevin Correia (10-9).
    
Brandon Phillips homered on Correia's first pitch of the game and doubled home another run. Scott Rolen added a solo shot.
    
The Pirates have lost five in a row and 22 out of 31. They trail the NL Central-leading Reds by a season-high 13 games.
