Packers, Bobcats Play 10 to Settle Game 3, Cincinnati Now Leads Series 2-1
Allan Houston has been in plenty of pressure situations during a 13-year baseball career, so a tight Game 3 in the League Championship Series didn't faze him.

The 31-year-old Cincinnati third baseman dealt enough damage against the Cleveland Bobcats pitching staff at Roman Arena today to help Cincinnati move one game closer to a World Series appearance. Houston was 2-4 with a home run and a walk. He scored 3 runs and drove in 2 as the Packers took the 7-6 win. With it, Cincinnati holds a 2-1 lead in the best-of-7 series.

A defensive lapse proved costly in the contest. With the game tied in the bottom of the tenth, an error by the Bobcats allowed the Packers to score the winning run.

"It was a solid team effort," Abdala said. "That's usually what it takes to win."

The next game is set to be played tomorrow at Roman Arena in Cincinnati.
