Cincinnati Tries to Hand the Phillies a Win

Cincinnati tries to hand the Phillies a win, but Philly falters. The streaky Aaron Nola toed the hill and was, in a word, ineffective with a 4 1/3 innings with 6 hits, 4 runs, and 3 walks with 4 k’s.


Rookie of the year candidate Jonathan India did most of the damage with a lead-off homer in before Shock Aliyan pushed home a pair with a double. Bryce Harper tagged a SAC Fly cutting it 3-1 but,  India scored off bases jammed free pass getting it to 4-1.

Philadelphia battled back courtesy of Alec Bohm sprong on a bases-loaded walk and a Didi Gregorius SAC Fly and we had a 4-3 contest. Tucker Barnhart pushed across a run with a double followed by Pinch Hitter. Tyler Stephenson banging a two-run shot.
Alec Bohm closed the 7-4 score with a double.

The Reds found themselves a bit short-handed with Nick Castellanos and Manager, David Bell getting the hook for arguing strikes in the first inning. Cincinnati tries to hand a win.
