The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game
Edwin Encarnacion hit about a half-mile worth of dingers against his former team, and yeah, they all stung.
Honorable Mention is due to Juan Francisco, who also mashed a dinger of his own against his former team.
At least the Reds still have J.J. Hoover.
- The Reds scored 8 runs in the Bottom of the 2nd off Liam Hendricks and former Red Todd Redmond courtesy of dingers from Devin Mesoraco & Jay Bruce, a double from Billy Hamilton, and a single from Brandon Phillips. Reds led, 8-0.
- The Blue Jays turned the fan on, and the Reds proceeded to throw turds at it. E5 hit a 3-run dinger in the 3rd, consecutive hits coupled with small-ball and a bases loaded walk by Logan Ondrusek added two more runs in the 6th, and Jumbo Diaz, Jonathan Broxton, Aroldis Chapman, home-plate umpire Goggles McNearsighted, and Sam LeCure combined to allow a metric ton of runs from then on out. Reds lose, 14-9.

- To say that sucked would be impolite to things that suck.
- Tonight's game would have been whatever is worse and more polite to sucking than sucking had last night's loss not sucked so badly. Unfortunately, they both sucked, the Reds are now back to being two games under .500, and whatever number of games they finish with in the win column is going to be two fewer than it should be (and that's going to, well, suck).
