Max Schrock -- starting at second base -- homered, tripled and doubled to lead a formidable Cincinnati Reds offensive attack in an 11-1 Memorial Day thrashing of the Philadelphia Phillies at Great American Ball Park.
As a Great American Ball Park crowd of 17,234 chanted "M-V-P, M-V-P," Jesse Winker took an eighth-inning curtain call following his third homer of the game. It capped a 4-for-4 game with a walk and three homers (all solo shots), leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 9-4 win over the Milwaukee Brewers. Winker is in the midst of the finest offensive season of his four-year major league career, improving his average to .356 with 11 homers and 26 RBI.
