MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at Cincinnati Reds David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game

Joey Votto, I guess? Votto went 3-for-5 with 2 doubles, even though the Reds couldn’t put much together.

Honorable mention goes to Billy Hamilton, who went 2-for-5 with a triple and Tony Cingrani, who pitched 1 13 scoreless innings of relief.

Key Plays

  • Asher Wojciechowski ran into some trouble early on, as he gave up a double to Corey Seager in the 1st. Cody Bellinger doubled with 2 outs and just like that, 1-0 Dodgers.
  • Just like that, the Reds struck back in the bottom of the inning, as Billy Hamilton scored from first off of a Zack Cozart double and a Chris Taylor throwing error. 1-1 game.
  • The Dodgers broke the game open in the 3rd. The pitcher Ryu reached on an error, and Chris Taylor drove in 2 runs with a double after Corey Seager walked. Immediately after, Cody Bellinger continued his hot hitting against the Reds and drove a 2-run shot to right center. Joc Pederson followed that up with a solo shot to chase Wojo out of the game. Austin Brice got out of the inning, but the damage done. 6-1 Dodgers.
  • The Reds did some work in the bottom of the inning, loading the bases with three straight singles before Eugenio Suarez walked to bring in a run. Unfortunately, they couldn’t capitalize more. Reds still down 6-2.
  • Ryu got on base again in the the 4th, and made the Reds pay by scoring again on a Seager single. 7-2 Dodgers.
  • Yasiel Puig homered off of Austin Brice in the 6th and Jake Buchanan in the 8th. He also had a sac fly with the bases loaded in the 9th, which was all she wrote. Dodgers win 10-2.

Other Notes

  • The Reds have lost 8 straight baseball games.
  • This game actually had a sellout crowd today, as everyone was there because they were told there would be a statue unveiled honoring the Hit King. I bet they were all disappointed that Ichiro couldn’t be there.
  • Can the Reds avoid being swept? We’ll find out, as a hungover Bronson Arroyo takes on Kenta Maeda at 1:10 ET.
