Reds pitcher Mike Leake shelled for nine runs in losing effort


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2015) Reds pitcher Mike Leake allowed nine runs on 11 hits in five innings of work in Cincinnati's 11-2 loss to the Giants on Saturday. 

Leake got through the first inning OK, needing just seven pitches. But it got gloomy in a hurry, as Leake allowed a solo home run to Brandon Belt, double to Hunter Pence and an RBI single to Brandon Crawford in the second. 

After three more runs in the third and fourth innings, the levee broke up in the fifth when Leake surrendered a grand slam to Crawford. It was the most runs allowed by a Reds pitcher since Homer Bailey in 2011.

"They were feeling it tonight," Reds manager Bryan Price said to MLB.com. "It's really easy to say the pitcher didn't have his stuff and they took advantage of it. It wasn't as if he was sitting at the belt all game out over the plate. He made some mistakes, the obvious one there with Crawford. It was a situation he never should have been in. We were somewhat depleted in the bullpen so I needed to try and grind him through that fifth inning. It didn't work out."

Leake, now 2-2, ballooned his ERA to 3.62 from 2.39 with just two strikeouts. He will look to bounce back Friday against the Indians.

After throwing nine strikeouts against the Cubs on April 24, Leake has only struck out a total of six batters in his past three games. 

Leake's next start is projected for Sunday against the Giants.
