Home runs hurt Anthony DeSclafani, Cincinnati Reds in loss to Los Angeles Dodgers

Max Muncy connected on a curveball that hung in the strike zone and immediately dropped his bat as he watched the ball travel into the Great American Ball Park seats in right-center field.

Muncy’s blast made it back-to-back homers in the third inning against Cincinnati Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani as the Los Angeles Dodgers, the highest-scoring offense in the National League, collectively showed their power in Friday’s series opener. DeSclafani surrendered three homers in four innings, matching a single-game career high.

"It was pretty embarrassing, to say the least for myself," DeSclafani said.
