This Weekend's Results

Reds 5, Brewers 3

While it was a step forward for Zach Davies, it wasn't a win for the Brewers. Zach Davies allowed three runs in six innings, allowing five runs and four walks with four strikeouts. Tyler Thornburg followed up Davies with two more runs allowed to account for the Reds scoring. On the other side, Brandon Finnegan pitched five innings and allowed only one run in his first start for the Reds. The Brewers scored two runs on home runs from Khris Davis and Jason Rogers.

Reds 9, Brewers 7

A back and forth game led to a series of new injuries for the Brewers. Khris Davis twisted his ankle running the bases, and a collision in left field led to Elian Herrera leaving the field on a stretcher and Shane Peterson coming out of the game. Herrera only sustained a right leg contusion, and Shane Pererson had a right knee bruise and a cut on his right forearm. It was a rough day overall for the pitching for both teams. Taylor Jungmann allowed six runs in five innings, and Josh Smith allowed four runs in four innings. Tyler Cravy allowed three more runs in the eighth inning. On offense, Domingo Santana did most of the damage with a 3-for-4 day with 5 RBI and a home run. Logan Schafer also hit a home run in the loss.

Brewers 8, Reds 4

A five-run fifth inning helped the Brewers break their losing streak. Ariel Pena allowed just two runs in five innings, and Adam Lind went 3-for-4 with three RBI. Logan Schafer also went 2-for-3 with two walks in the game. They got to Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani, who allowed five runs in 4 1/3 innings.
