Reds closer Francisco Cordero (3-4) walked two batters in the 10th. Heyward worked the count full and then hit a sinking line drive that left-fielder Jonny Gomes couldn’t make the catch on allowing two runners to score.

Hannigan doubled off Atlanta starting pitcher Jair Jurrgens (3-4), who has yet to win on the road. Two runs scored (Scott Rolen had doubled and Jay Bruce had singled earlier in the inning) while Cabrera chased the ball to the wall. When Cabrera turned and threw quickly, the ball slipped from his hand and rolled across the outfield towards right field, allowing Hanigan to score on a very weird play and error.

Bronson Arroyo (11-6) gave up five hits in seven innings. Francisco Cordero gave up a pair of singles in the ninth, but slipped a called third strike past Jason Heyward to earn his 28th save in 34 opportunities.
