History didn’t suggest things would work out well for Tyler Mahle and the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday afternoon. Good thing they play the games because boy did it ever work out.
The Reds did their damage early. Jesse Winker got things going with his 10th home run of the season in the second inning. It was a 394-foot shot to center field that put the Reds up 1-0. The next inning saw Cincinnati string together some hits. Tucker Barnhart singled to lead off the inning. Nick Senzel would single to put runners on 1st and 2nd.
