The Reds got off to a great start in Queens when they scored four runs in the second inning. However, starting pitcher Tanner Roark was unable to hold that lead as walks burned him tonight. Jesse Winker hit a 415 foot blast in the top of the ninth off Mets closer Edwin Diaz to give the Reds a 5-4 lead. Raisel Iglesias finished off the Mets with two scoreless innings, including striking out the final four hitters.
The Cincinnati Reds are on the road on Saturday to take on the St. Louis Cardinals.
The Reds beat up on the St. Louis Cardinals as a great way to kick off a seven game roadtrip. Peraza, Votto, Suarez, Winker and Puig all hit home runs. It was the first time in Reds history that batters hitting 9 through 4 in the order all homered in the same game.
The Cincinnati Reds (10-14) will take on the first place St. Louis Cardinals (15-9) tonight at 8:15 PM in the first of three games at Busch Stadium. The Reds are 9-6 in their last 15 games, and they are 3-1-1 in their last five series. The Cardinals have won five straight games, including a three-game sweep over the Brewers earlier this week.
The Reds offense got off to a great start on Wednesday night when they collected three straight hits off Mike Soroka to start the game. The Reds were only able to scratch across one run in that inning and two more hits the rest of the night. Tanner Roark battled through five innings, but a Yasiel Puig error gave the Braves the lead in the fifth inning. They would go on to win 3-1.
The Reds offense was dominated for most of the night in San Diego by Padres' pitching. The Reds at one point had 16 consecutive batters retired and had just three hits entering the 11th inning. It only took one mighty swing off the bat by Derek Dietrich to change the outcome of this game. Dietrich destroyed a 3-1 pitch into the right field seats to give the Reds a 3-1 lead. Zack Duke and Michael Lorenzen finished off another outstanding night of Reds pitching to secure the Reds second consecutive win.
The Cincinnati Reds (5-11) will try to avoid being swept by the Los Angeles Dodgers (11-8) today at 3:10 PM. The Reds lost their third consecutive game last night. The Reds are now 1-3-2 through their first six series of 2019.
Tyler Mahle struggled early and the Reds trailed 4-0 after two innings. That would be more than enough for Kenta Madeda and the Dodgers as the Reds offense could never get anything going tonight. The Reds have now lost 3 straight games immediately following their four game win streak.
The Cincinnati Reds (5-10) will try again tonight against the Los Angeles Dodgers (10-8) at 10:10 PM. The Reds lost a heartbreaker in the 9th inning last night courtesy of a Rasiel Iglesias blown save.

The Dodgers started the season 8-2, but they have lost six of seven since (all coming against the Cardinals and Brewers).
