After being embarrassed in the first two games of the series against the Chicago Cubs, the Cincinnati Reds needed a turnaround, and that's exactly what they got Wednesday afternoon taking down the Cubs by a score of 6-0.
"We needed it big-time," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "We hated to let the Cubs get out of here with two, but it would have been worse with three."
"It did feel like it got hotter every inning," said Leake. "I didn't have my best stuff, but I was able to put some zeros up there and keep us in the game."
"Despite the last two games, we had a great homestand," Leake said. "We played two playoff-caliber teams. That's what it's going to be like if we're going to make it. It was awesome to see."
Cincinnati will have a day off before heading on their last road-trip of the season. They head to Milwaukee for three games before heading to Houston and then Pittsburgh.
