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.

Chicago Cubs vs Cincinnati Reds – July 29, 2020

Mike Moustakas and Nick Senzel are back! It's been a rough start to the season for the Cincinnati Reds (1-4), but the news of those two guys returning to the lineup certainly had to put a jolt through the locker room. The Reds don't have time to mess around as they are already three games behind the Chicago Cubs (4-1) in the NL Central. Game 3 of 4 is tonight at 6:40 PM at GABP.
