Pham and Lodolo strong rebounds not enough to stop Reds 7th straight loss

The Reds got their first lead of the week in the first inning when Tommy Pham finally got his first extra-base hit as a Red. The Friars faithful for some reason decided to boo the .039 hitter, and Pham returned the favor with a 424 foot blast into the left field seats. The Reds offense had plenty of good chances early in the game, but could not find a way to get any more runners across the plate off Padres starting pitcher, Sean Manaea. The Reds lost their 7th straight game to fall to 2-9 overall.

Reds lose third straight despite Aquino and Drury’s heroics

The Cincinnati Reds fell behind 3-0 early on Thursday night with an assist to some tough luck to opener, Luis Cessa. The Reds for all their flaws, never quit. Aristides Aquino had looked as bad as you possibly could in his first two trips to the plate, but battled back from an 0-2 count to make it a 1-run game in the 6th inning.
