Hunter Greene threw 39 pitches above 100+ in his hometown of Los Angeles. Greene dominated the mighty Dodgers for five innings. Unfortunately for Greene and the Reds, an elite hitter in Trea Turner caught up to a fairly well located 98.9 MPH fastball and blasted it into the left field seats. Greene would leave later in the inning after 80 pitches, but finished the night throwing just shy of 50% of his pitches above the century mark.
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.

Luis Castillo set the tone early and often with a dominant performance. He gave the Reds 6.1 innings of shutout baseball in arguably his biggest start of the season. Luis Cessa and Michael Lorenzen finished the job for a big Reds victory. The win just happened to be the Reds 77th win of the season, which is their most in as a season since 2013.
