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.

The Cincinnati Reds (1-2) are not off to the start to the season they were hoping for and most expected. The Reds bullpen let them down in a big way the last two days. The Reds will have no time to lick their wounds as they kick off a four game series against the Chicago Cubs (2-1) tonight at 6:40 PM at Great American Ballpark.
