Cincinnati Reds’ best lineup lowers the boom on Chicago Cubs pitching in 12-7 win

Now that's more like it. Starting what is clearly their best lineup for the first time since Opening Day, the Cincinnati Reds scored a convincing 12-7 victory over the Chicago Cubs to break a four-game losing streak. Mike Moustakas, Nick Senzel and Tucker Barnhart returned to the lineup from absences of varying reasons and powered the Reds to a 9-0 lead after six innings.

Cincinnati Reds rookies lead big comeback that falls just short against Chicago Cubs

In a season in which we did not expect rookies to be key figures for the Cincinnati Reds, they were the bright spots on this evening. Catcher Tyler Stephenson and righthander Tejay Antone both made their major league debuts in notable fashions. Unfortunately, that happened because the Reds got behind very early, 6-0, after two innings, as the Chicago Cubs rode that early margin to an eventual 8-7 win. The loss dropped Cincinnati to a 1-3 record in their first four games.
