Recap: Cincinnati vs. Arizona

Cincinnati, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Nick Ahmed's two-out RBI single in the top of the 15th inning gave the Arizona Diamondbacks a 2-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday.

Martin Prado drew a walk with one away against J.J. Hoover (1-8) and moved to second base on Didi Gregorius' groundout. Ahmed stepped in and came up with the biggest hit of his young career, lacing a single to left-center that easily scored Prado.

"We had some trouble getting hits here tonight, but we had some opportunities and we had guys have good at-bats and some guys hit the ball hard, just nothing was falling in," said Ahmed. "It's nice to have that drop in and get the win."

Oliver Perez (1-1) pitched two scoreless innings of relief and Addison Reed shut the door in the ninth to earn his 25th save.

The Diamondbacks improved to an amazing 13-0 in games that go at least 15 innings.

Arizona starter Chase Anderson struck out a career-high eight batters in seven innings. He allowed just a run on three hits, departing when Juan Pacheco pinch-hit for him in the top of the eighth inning. Anderson needed just 89 pitches to get through seven.

Homer Bailey was also efficient, throwing 95 pitches in eight innings of work. He yielded a run on five hits.

The top three hitters in the Cincinnati lineup, Billy Hamilton, Jay Bruce and Todd Frazier, finished a combined 0-for-16 with 10 strikeouts.

"I wish I could put my finger on it," said Reds manager Bryan Price. "This just has not been a series of really good at-bats, competitive at-bats."

Devin Mesoraco led off the bottom of the second inning with a solo blast to the second deck in left field to give the Reds an early 1-0 edge. Brayan Pena doubled later in the frame and Kris Negron blooped a single into center. Pena tried to take home on the base hit, but Ender Inciarte fired home in plenty of time to keep it a one-run game.

Arizona got the run back in the fourth when Miguel Montero followed Mark Trumbo's double with an RBI single to right.

Anderson got stronger as the game went on. The rookie struck out the top three batters in Cincinnati's order in the sixth inning and fanned Mesoraco to start the seventh. He retired the last 11 batters he faced and didn't allow a hit after the second inning.

Aroldis Chapman pitched the ninth for Cincinnati and recorded his 31st career three-strikeout inning.
