Just when it seemed another victory might slip away from the Reds, they got a break. A big one.

Third baseman Todd Frazier fielded Chris Nelson's slow roller at the bag, turned and tagged Dexter Fowler for the final out of the Reds' a 3-2 win over the Colorado Rockies before a crowd of 21,673 at Great American Ball Park on Wednesday night.

The Rockies thought Fowler was safe.

"The ump said he was out," Reds manager Dusty Baker said.

If Fowler had been called safe, the Rockies would have had runners on first and third with Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki due up to bat.

"You certainly didn't want that," Baker said. "We caught some breaks finally. ... Hey man, we'll take it. We need any victory we can get. We won a one-run ballgame."
