Reds fall in Justin Dunn’s debut, lose India and Moustakas in the process

Justin Dunn allowed a home run to the second batter he faced, making his first start in 14 months in the big leagues. Dunn was able to settle in, and work through 4.2 innings on a strict pitch count limit. The Reds offense could not find a way to get much going on the evening. Even worse, the Reds lost both Jonathan India and Mike Moustakas to injuries in the fourth inning.
