Recap

David Huff won for the first time in over a month and Shin-Soo Choo had three hits to lead the Cleveland Indians to a 4-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday at Progressive Field.

Huff (2-6) had lost five straight starts since beating Texas on April 15. The left-hander allowed three runs in six innings.

Jhonny Peralta's sixth-inning single off Danny Herrera (0-2) broke a 3-3 tie.

Kerry Wood pitched the ninth for his first save since Sept. 25, 2009. He was on the disabled list the first month of the season with a strained muscle in his upper back. Wood blew his first save chance on Wednesday against Kansas City.

Scott Rolen homered twice for the Reds. His two-run homer in the first gave the Reds an early lead. His solo shot in the top of the sixth tied the game at 3-3.

Reds starter Homer Bailey left the game in the third inning with tightness in his right shoulder. He was charged with three runs in 2 1/3 innings.

Choo singled in the first and sixth, tripled and scored in the third and walked in the fourth.

After Rolen's home run in the first, Cleveland tied the game in the bottom of the inning with runs on Travis Hafner's infield hit and Shelly Duncan's single.

Russell Branyan's sacrifice fly put the Indians ahead in the third before Rolen tied the game in the sixth. Singles by Trevor Crowe and Choo put runners on first and third before Peralta lined a single to left.
