The Short Version: Reds lead 4-1 in the eighth, only to see the game slip through the fingers of Michael Lorenzen and Raisel Iglesias. Cincinnati’s top four hitters reached base half of the time, and the team got a quality start from Jackson Stephens, but it wasn’t enough to prevent a Boston sweep.
The Reds have now lost six games in a row, and they finished the home season with a record of 39-42. Cincinnati has only six games left in the season, for which we are all thankful.
