Before their game with Atlanta on Thursday night, the Cincinnati Reds honored Braves third baseman Chipper Jones, presenting him with one of the bases as a memento of his last trip ever into Cincinnati. Jones is planning on retiring after the 2012 season. He received a standing ovation from the crowd of 23,312 after highlights of his career were show on the Great American Ball Park scoreboard.

Up until the bottom of the sixth inning, it looked as if the injury-riddled Braves would limped out of town with at least one win in the four-game set. They were leading 2-1 and Randall Delgado (2-5) was holding the Reds offense at bay.

The tide then changed as Delgado had control problems and the Reds loaded the bases with one out. Enter the game for the Braves is reliever Kris Medlen to face rookie Devin Mesoraco.

Mesoraco, the Reds #2 catcher hit his first career grand slam leading the new National League Central Division leaders to a 6-3 win and a four-game sweep of Atlanta.

It was the first home run for Mesoraco since April 27. He pulled a 2-0 Medlen pitch towering to left-field that stayed inside the foul pole for his fourth major league round-tripper and the Reds’ third grand slam homer of the year.

Cincinnati completed their first four-game sweep of the Braves in Cincinnati since 1980 at old Riverfront Stadium.
