CINCINNATI (AP) – Tucker Barnhart hit a game-ending single in the ninth inning, and the Cincinnati Reds overcame a bullpen meltdown and took advantage of a Colorado baserunning blunder to beat the Rockies 6-5 Wednesday.

Colorado appeared to tie the score 3-3 in the seventh when Dustin Garneau doubled with two outs and pinch-hitter Ryan Raburn lined the ball into right field for what appeared to be a single. But the Reds threw to third before the next pitch, and Garneau was called out on appeal by umpire Adrian Johnson for missing the base. The call was upheld after a 3-minute, 20-second video review, and Raburn lost a hit.
