Video: Zack Cozart discusses thrilling extra-inning comeback win

In case you went to bed early last night, the Reds pulled off one of their most thrilling victories of the season by coming from behind to topple the Giants, 7-3, in 11 innings.

The extra inning affair was made possible when Brandon Phillips, who celebrated his 33rd birthday yesterday, smashed a two-run homer in the top of the ninth to give Cincinnati a temporary 2-1 lead.

Aroldis Chapman relinquished that lead in the home half of the frame to send the game into extras. Then, in the top of the 11th, the Reds exploded by plating five runs, two of which came off the bat of Zack Cozart with the bases loaded and with two outs.

Seen above is Cincy's shortstop talking about the clutch hit and the win.
