Reds 5 Giants 1

Graham Ashcraft pitched into the 7th inning to record his first ML win and the Reds made it three straight wins beating the Giants 5-1. The start of the game was delayed two hours and eight minutes. Since starting 3-22, the Reds have gone 12-8.

Ashcraft: 6.1 IN, 4 H, 0 R, 1 K, 2 BB. He was hitting 100mph+ and threw a first pitch strike to 15 of 24 batters, including the first 12 faced.

2 hits each: Tyler Stephenson, Albert Amora Jr. (2B), Alejo Lopez (SB)

Again: Nick Senzel reached on catcher's inference in the 8th inning to force in a run with the bases loaded

HR: Brandon Drury, team leading No. 8

Bullpen: Alexis Diaz 1.0, 1 H, 1 R, 1 BB. Art Warren 1.2 IN, Save

Slap and scratch: Tommy Pham was a late scratch from the starting lineup after an afternoon altercation that included him slapping Giants OF Joc Pederson. You read that correctly. MLB is investigating.

Rehab: Mike Minor threw six innings in a minor league rehab start and appears ready to rejoin the rotation next week.
