The Reds got off to a 4-1 lead in the top of the 5th, but that was short-lived. Albert Pujols hit career home run #698 in the bottom of the 6th inning to tie the game at 4. The Reds would take the lead back in the top of the 7th on a Kyle Farmer solo home run, but the Cardinals scored two runs right back in the bottom of the 7th on a poorly hit double from Nolan Arenado. That would prove to be the final score in a 6-5 defeat for the Reds.
