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.

The Reds had not hit a very many homers before the series, but the teams both reached the seats with regularity. The Braves and Reds combined for 16 homers, 13 solo shots which accounted for 21 of the 24 runs in the series.

Braves losing pitcher Delgado, gave up, four runs, seven hits and three walks in 5 1/3 innings. He has not won a game since April 17, going 0-5 with two no-decisions.

The Braves are mired in their second four-game losing streak of the season. The Braves had to play the series without their best two hitters in Jones, who made one pinch-hit appearance due to a bruised left calf muscle. Catcher Brian McCann could not play the final three games due to an illness.

Homer Bailey (3-3) was the winning pitcher for the Reds, allowing four hits and two runs and has won back-to-back games for the first time this season beating the Yankees and now the Braves.

Logan Ondrusek picked up his second save of the season.
