(CINCINNATI, OH) - Drew Stubbs hit a walk-off home run to drive the Cincinnati Reds past the Atlanta Braves, 4-3.
Stubbs led off the ninth inning by swinging at the first pitch offered by the Braves' scott Linebrink.
The ball sailed over the right field wall at the Great American Ballpark, giving the Reds back to back wins for the first time since mid-June.
Dontrelle Willis was relieved after pitching into the seventh inning.
The 29-year old southpaw allowed three runs in just his third start of the season.
The Reds are three games out of first place in the NL Central, a division that features a three team log-jam at the top.
