Yesterday's Results

Reds 16, Brewers 10

The Brewers used a reworked lineup yesterday, and to no one's surprise, it worked out quite well. The Brewers scored 10 runs on 12 hits, including two home runs, one of which was a grand slam by Elian Herrera. It would have been enough to win most nights...except the pitching staff gave up 16 runs. Mike Fiers was hit for eight runs (four earned), all coming off of grand slams in back-to-back innings. The pitching staff gave up five home runs in total, wit Tyler Thornburg also allowing two and Neal Cotts allowing the other one.
