Reds blast 5 HRs to power past Cards in game-one with 12-1 blowout
There’s really not much to a 12-1 loss, is there?
Mikolas would surrender 3 solo bombs (Suárez, Winker, and Votto) during his 5 innings of work, allowing 4 earned.
DeSclafani morphed into a pitcher he’s not.
Ryan Helsley worked two scoreless innings from the pen, flashing a sharp cutter.
Dominic Leone got wrecked in the 9th.
AND IT FORCED THE GREATEST MOMENT OF THE NIGHT Jedd “Trap House” Gyorko entered the game from the dugout to get the final out of the inning in a 12-1 trashing. Jedd did that thang we all wanted him to, striking out Ervin on a knuckleball/slider/eephus, hell, I don’t even know what it was, but it made the night worth it.
Dakota Hudson (1-1, 5.89) gets the ball in game-two tomorrow afternoon, facing off against Tyler Mahle (0-2, 3.52). First pitch 1:15pm c/t.
