Reds lose another series as rain proves difficult for Sonny Gray

It started out so well. The Reds jumped out to a 3-0 lead. Meanwhile, the Marlins were down 6-3 in the 8th inning. Those two scores hold, the Reds are somehow, someway back within 1.5 games of playoff spot. But it's 2020. The Marlins rallied to win 7-6. Sonny Gray cruised through the first three innings, but then the rain fell and it fell hard in the 4th inning. Gray walked two batters as it appeared he could not get a good grip on the baseball. The Cubs ended up scoring 5 runs in the 4th inning with a grand total of one ball leaving the infield.

Cincinnati Reds get must win at Wrigley behind Bauer & Moustakas

Mike Moustakas' three-run homer in the first inning off Yu Darvish felt like it was worth 25 runs. The Reds entered play having failed to score a run in 15 consecutive innings, and they had backed themselves into what was a must win game tonight. The three runs Moustakas drove in would prove to be more than enough for Trevor Bauer. He took a no-hitter into the fifth inning, and dominated the Cubs over 7.2 innings.

Mike Moustakas and Nick Senzel are back! It's been a rough start to the season for the Cincinnati Reds (1-4), but the news of those two guys returning to the lineup certainly had to put a jolt through the locker room. The Reds don't have time to mess around as they are already three games behind the Chicago Cubs (4-1) in the NL Central. Game 3 of 4 is tonight at 6:40 PM at GABP.
