Pena's first career multi-homer game ends in Reds loss to Yankees

(FOX19) -

Brayan Pena left the yard twice for the first time in his career, but the Reds (51-45) dropped the opener to the Yankees 4-3 on Friday night. Pena, who was without a home run since May 4th coming into the night, pounded solo homers in the third and seventh inning.

"A couple of solid homers [by Pena], but we weren't able to get enough going against them," said Reds manager Bryan Price.

With the game knotted at 2-2 in the fifth inning, Jacoby Ellsbury came up with the game-defining hit for New York, a two-run blast to right giving the Yankees a 4-2 lead they would not relinquish.

Mike Leake went seven innings in a losing effort after giving up eight hits on four earned runs.

"Leake competed well and gave us a chance, but it was just pitch execution," said Price. "You're not going to pitch perfect games and make every pitch."

The Reds send Alfredo Simon to the bump on Saturday for a 1:05 p.m. start at Yankee Stadium.

    TEP’s rate case will go before the Arizona Corporation Commission starting Monday, Oct. 23.
