Pomeranz leads Padres over Reds

CINCINNATI (AP) – Drew Pomeranz drove in a pair of runs and pitched seven innings on Saturday, leading the San Diego Padres to a 3-0 victory in a game delayed a few minutes by the Cincinnati Reds’ tribute to Pete Rose.

Pomeranz hit his second career homer and had an RBI single against left-hander Brandon Finnegan (3-6). The Padres have won the first three games of the series, improving to 12-3 against the Reds over the last three seasons.

The Reds inducted Rose into their Hall of Fame during a pregame ceremony that included his Big Red Machine teammates and went six minutes long. During a session with the media, Rose joked about taking volunteers for the Reds’ beleaguered bullpen, which is by far the worst in the majors.
