Power, but no win

Indians 7, Reds 6
A career-high six walks hurt Homer Bailey on Saturday night. (Tom Uhlman/AP)
Joey Votto's return to the Reds brought fireworks via two homers, but Homer Bailey's first start of the season wasn't as stellar. Votto drove in four, but Bailey allowed six earned runs -- with four of the runs coming from runners who reach via walks. Cincy left 10 runners on base.
