It was inevitable after the top of the second inning, after Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Mike Leake self-destructed and imploded, that the Philadelphia Phillies would win Wednesday afternoon's game. Leake gave up four runs in the second inning, a four-run lead for Roy Halladay and, well, when The Doc gets a four-run lead, the operation and the surgery is over. He was 109-0 when given a four-run lead or more. Now he is 110-0 because the Phillies blasted the Reds, 6-2. Leake gave up a three-run homer to Erik Kratz in the second and a two-run homer in the third to Chase Utley.
Votto's return doesn't help Reds
