This series is about getting well at the expense of Bud Black’s boys. Translated, that means SWEEP.
While Tyler Mahle was living up to expectations early, the bats were going to work. With Winker on in the first inning, Nick Castellanos clubbed his 13th HR. Reds 2-0.

An inning later, Suarez ripped a single and Scott Heineman slipped the surly bonds of earth, a 413 ft. HR that reached the second deck. Reds 4-0.
Castellanos walked in the 3rd and after Stephenson hit a ground ball through the wickets of 3rd baseman Ryan McMahon, Joey Votto got his 1,934th hit of his career—HR—tying him with Tony Perez for 5th most hits in Reds history.
