CINCINNATI (AP) -- Rookie Jay Bruce had four hits -- three of them off 300-game winner Tom Glavine -- and scored on Chipper Jones' error in the 11th inning Friday night, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves.
Bruce added to his remarkable debut week by opening the 11th with a single off Royce Ring (1-1). Ken Griffey Jr. then singled past Jones, and the third baseman also failed to come up with Brandon Phillips' grounder for a game-ending error.
Bruce also doubled home a run and scored in the sixth, adding to his growing lore. The Reds' top prospect has become the fans' favorite while going 8-for-14 in his first four games.
