The Good
–Adam Duvall had two hits, including his 22nd home run, and a walk. Jay Bruce singled and doubled. Joey Votto reached base four times, on a single and three walks.

–Jumbo Diaz pitched a perfect inning and a third in relief.

The Bad
–Pretty much everything else was bad. Start with Billy Hamilton, who was hit in the jaw with a fly ball after Duvall ran in front of him and completely botched the play. Go check out the highlight. The official scorer gave Anthony Rizzo an inside-the-park home run, but it should have been an error on Duvall.

Hamilton left the game. We’ll keep you updated on his condition.

–Terrible start for Cody Reed against one of the best lineups in the game: 4 innings pitched, seven runs allowed on nine hits. He did strike out five without walking anyone.

Not-So-Random Thoughts
–The Cubs were scuffling until they played the Reds. That scenario used to be reversed. Sigh…

–That’s all I feel like saying about this game. The Reds have lost 7 of 8, and 9 of 11. The Cubs scored 27 runs in sweeping this three-game series against the good guys.

What a mess…
