Reds 10, Yankees 2: Brian Gordon Suffers First Defeat

Chris Heisey and the Cincinnati Reds rudely interrupted Brian Gordon's dream ride to the major leagues Wednesday night, routing the Yankees, 10-2, in the second game of a doubleheader at Cincinnati's Great American Ball Park. The Yankees won the first game, 4-2.

En route to a three-home run night, Heisey led off the game with a home run against Gordon, the 32-year-old career minor league outfielder turned pitcher making his second big-league start for the Yankees. Gordon (0-1) gave up three home runs, two to Heisey, and surrendered four runs in five innings of work.. Heisey ended up with five RBI on the night.

The Reds broke open a 4-1 game with three runs in the seventh and three in the eighth off New York reliever Hector Noesi.

Johnny Cueto (5-2) got the victory for Cincinnati. He pitched seven innings of two-hit baseball, allowing just one run.

The Yankees are off Thursday, then return to Yankee Stadium on Friday to open a three-game series against the Colorado Rockies.
