Cincinnati, OH (Sports Network) – Drew Stubbs homered and drove in four runs, and the Cincinnati Reds routed the Cleveland Indians, 10-3, in the start of the second all-Ohio series of the 2010 season.
Scott Rolen added a home run and drove in two runs, while Jay Bruce went 2- for-2 with two doubles, an RBI and three runs scored for the Reds, who have won four straight.
