Tanner Roark gave the Reds five solid innings, but the Reds bullpen had a rare poor performance, allowing six earned runs over four innings.

A full recap of this afternoon's big league baseball game between the Cincinnati Reds and the St. Louis Cardinals from Busch Stadium.
The Reds are last in team batting average (.192), on-base percentage (.256), walks received (46), and 26th out of 30 in OPS (.628). As this season began, the expectation was that this offense would be among the best in the National League, if not all of baseball. So what’s happening here?
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.
