Finnegan pitches 5 scoreless innings in Reds' 4-2 win
MILWAUKEE (AP) Brandon Finnegan pitched five scoreless innings in his final start of the season, lifting the Cincinnati Reds to a 4-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday.
Finnegan (10-11) scattered three hits and struck out four, needing only 54 pitches to get through five innings. Raisel Iglesias pitched the ninth for his fourth save in five chances.
Finnegan, obtained in the July 2015 trade that sent Johnny Cueto to Kansas City, went 4-3 with a 2.23 ERA in his final 11 starts. The left-hander pitched 172 innings this year, up from 105 1/3 innings splitting time between the major and minor leagues in 2015.
Milwaukee starter Wily Peralta (7-11) pitched six innings, allowing three runs – two earned – on five hits and three walks while striking out five.
