Share All sharing options for: Reds blow lead in 9th inning, fall to Twins 5-3

The Cincinnati Reds have, for all intents and purposes, been riding a one-man starting rotation of late. Injuries to the likes of Graham Ashcraft, Nick Lodolo, and Ben Lively began the downfall, while Brandon Williamson has struggled for both quality and depth since a bout on the COVID injured list. Connor Phillips and Lyon Richardson, for all their youthful talent, have been shuttling back and forth from Louisville to the active roster to fill in where they can, but there’s been perilously little stability anywhere else on that part of the roster outside of Hunter Greene.

Greene threw perhaps his single most dominant game of the year on Wednesday afternoon, and despite every single game being make or break at this juncture, the Reds couldn’t manage to make that hold up.
