06/29 21:56 CDT Reds get up by 8 runs, hold on for 11-7 win over Twins Reds get up by 8 runs, hold on for 11-7 win over Twins By JOE KAY AP Sports Writer CINCINNATI (AP) --- Billy Hamilton scored three times in the first three innings to help Cincinnati open a huge lead, and the Reds held on for an 11-7 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Monday night. The Reds sent 10 batters to the plate for five runs and a 9-1 lead in the third inning, when Mike Pelfrey (5-5) failed to retire any of the four batters he faced. Pelfrey gave up eight runs --- matching his season high --- and nine hits, retiring only six of 17 batters. Cincinnati's Mike Leake let most of the lead slip away. Ten Twins batted during a six-run rally in the top of the fourth inning. Brian Dozier's three-run homer off Leake cut it to 9-7. Nate Adcock (1-1) got the victory with two scoreless innings in relief of Leake. Cincinnati's bullpen did not allow a hit in five innings of relief. The Twins haven't overcome an eight-run deficit to win a game since 1929, when they were the Washington Senators, according to STATS. They couldn't pull it off on Monday as the Reds matched their season high with 17 hits. Every Cincinnati position player had at least one hit, and seven different players scored. The Reds had at least one hit in each inning. Hamilton reached in each of his first four plate appearances on a pair of infield singles and two walks. He stole four bases --- giving him a major league-leading 40 for the season --- and scored three times. Tucker Barnhart had four hits and drove in a pair of runs. Eugenio Suarez, who is filling in at shortstop with Zack Cozart out for the season, had three hits and drove in three runs. TRAINER'S ROOM Twins: RHP Ricky Nolasco will see another specialist about his sore right ankle, which has sidelined him since the start of June. Reds: C Devin Mesoraco had surgery on his left hip Monday as planned. He's been on the disabled list since June 25. ... 2B Brandon Phillips was out of the lineup with two sore hands. ... RHP Raisel Iglesias, sidelined since June 5 by a strained oblique, will begin a rehab assignment on Tuesday. UP NEXT Twins: Phil Hughes (6-6) makes his first career appearance against the Reds. He's 9-4 in interleague play with a 3.82 ERA. Reds: Anthony DeSclafani (5-5) makes his first appearance against the Twins. He has given up seven runs in 11 innings during his last two starts. ___ Follow Joe Kay on Twitter: http://twitter.com/apjoekay
