Jay Bruce hits 2-run homer as Cincinnati Reds edge Oakland Athletics 6-5

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, August 7, 2013 3:56 PM EDT

Jay Bruce hit a two-run homer and threw out a runner at the plate, helping the Cincinnati Reds beat Bartolo Colon and the Oakland Athletics 6-5 on Wednesday.

Corky Miller added two run-scoring doubles for Cincinnati, which won consecutive games for the first time since July 24 in San Francisco and July 25 in Los Angeles. Bruce also had a run-scoring grounder in the first.

AL West-leading Oakland, which began the day with a one-game advantage over Texas, scored as many runs as it had in its previous three games, but still lost for the sixth time in seven games.
