Recap: Reds Win 7-3, Move Back to .500

And this one belongs to the Reds! After snapping their six game winning streak last night, the Reds got right back into the win column this afternoon with a 7-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox. The win moved Cincinnati back to .500 on the season at 27-27.

After a clean first three frames, White Sox pitcher Dylan Cease walked the first three batters in the bottom of the fourth inning. The Reds made the Sox pay for the miscues after they removed Cease from the game to the tune of five runs despite getting just one hit in the inning. Tucker Barnhart and Aristides Aquino had back-to-back RBI groundouts with the bases loaded to put the Reds on top 2-0.

After taking the lead, the Reds drew back-to-back-to-back walks once again in the fourth to score another run. Then, Mike Moustakas drove in two more runs with a single to bust the game wide open and give Cincinnati a commanding 5-0 lead.

The White Sox answered with two runs in the top of the fifth inning but Aristides Aquino came right back with a two-run Home Run in the bottom half to regain a five run advantage for the Reds.

After an eighth inning long ball from former Red Edwin Encarnacion the final score was set a 7-3.

Lucas Sims earned the victory for the Reds after throwing 2 1/3 innings of shutout relief. Michael Lorenzen was excellent in his second straight start filling in for the injured Wade Miley as he threw 4 2/3 innings of three hit, two run baseball while striking out eight batters.

Archie Bradley allowed the Home Run to Encarnacion, his first run given up in a Reds uniform. Raisel Iglesias shut the door with a perfect ninth inning.

After the three-game series victory, Cincinnati will remain home at Great American Ball Park to finish off their 10-game homestand with a three-game set against the Milwaukee Brewers. Tomorrow evening at 6:40 p.m. Eastern Time the Reds will send Luis Castillo (3-5, 3.03) to the mound against Brandon Woodruff (2-4, 3.45).
