Miguel Cairo delivered a clutch RBI single that would stand as the winning run in the Reds' 2-1 victory over the Giants on Saturday in San Francisco.

Cairo finished the day 1-for-2 after entering in the fifth inning for Joey Votto. The veteran infielder is hitting just .140 with four RBI on the year and doesn't merit consideration in even the deepest of fantasy formats. Still, it was a very nice afternoon.
