With the Reds down to their last strike, Devin Mesoraco and Shin-Soo Choo hit back-to-back home runs off of Braves closer Craig Kimbrel to give the Reds a 5-4 victory over the Braves at Great American Ball Park on Tuesday.

Kimbrel had a full count on Mesoraco when the pinch-hitter hit a shot to center field, just out of the reach of B.J. Upton. Choo followed with his second homer of the night, to left-center to give the Reds the victory and manager Dusty Baker the 1,600th victory of his career.

It was the eighth career multi-homer game for Choo, and his second career walk-off. He has seven homers this season.

The Reds overcame a bumpy start from Homer Bailey, who put the team in a 3-0 hole, after the first inning.

Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons, who had two homers on Monday, hit Bailey’s first pitch of the day into short left -- too shallow for Paul and too deep for Cozart, who saw the ball tick off his glove. Bailey bounced back to strike out B.J. Upton before walking Justin Upton and Freddie Freeman. He then struck out Evan Gattis and was one strike away from getting out of the inning when Brian McCann lined a fastball back up the middle with a full count to score two runs. Dan Uggla’s single plated another before former Red Juan Francisco struck out to end the inning.

It took Bailey 41 pitches to get through the first inning and left after five with 93 pitches. The first six outs he recorded were strikeouts, but he needed 58 pitches to get through the first two innings.

Bailey needed just five pitches to get through the third and nine in the fourth, but B.J. Upton led off the fifth with a single and later scored on Freddie Freeman’s single to left, putting the Reds in a 4-1 hole.

Shin-Soo Choo’s third-inning homer was the first by a Red since he led off Saturday’s game in Chicago with a solo blast.
