Reds rally 'round Freel in finale
Bucs' streak stops at three
The red-hot Pirates offense was cooled down by Kyle Lohse, amassing just six hits in the finale of a four-game set. The Bucs did have a few chances, but Jason Bay and Humberto Cota were thrown out at the plate. Ian Snell allowed three runs, but suffered his second straight loss.

Cincy cruises after collision
The Reds overcame a scare to Ryan Freel to salvage their series with the Pirates. After Freel was carted off following a collision in third, David Ross homered in the fifth. That was more than enough for Kyle Lohse, who tossed a six-hit shutout.
