The Dodger came out swinging when Andre Ethier hit a two run homer in the top of the first inning. The Reds put one on score board in the bottom of the first, and the back-and-forth was on.
The next four innings seemed to fly by. It took just over an hour to complete five innings. Then, the bats heated up again, for both teams. By the time it was over, the Reds fans were treated to more than one questionable play by the Dodgers, a handful of long balls, and some great hitting. In the end, the Reds won the game 8-5, and took the Series two games to one.
