Reds rally, bullpen locks it down, Reds win

Final: Reds 5 Diamondbacks 4

Trailing 4-1 in the 5th inning, Brandon Drury's three-run homer tied the game and a Mike Moustakas RBI single in the 6th inning proved to be the difference in the Reds 5-4 win Monday night.

Four Reds relievers combined to record the final eight outs to locked down Mike Minor's first win as a Reds. Minor allowed two runs in the 3rd inning and two more in the 4th innings, but then held Arizona scoreless into the 7th inning.

The much maligned bullpen took it from there: Tony Santillan (0.2), Revier Sanmartin (0.2), Art Warren (0.1), Hunter Strickland (1.0, SV).

All-Star? Drury clubbed his team leading 12th HR and extended his career-high hitting streak to 12 games (19 for 46, .413). Not bad for a guy signed to a minor league deal in late March and invited to spring training.

Manufacturing: Matt Reynolds singled, stole second base and scored on the two-out Moustakas bloop single for the lead in the 6th. Reynolds had 2 H, RBI.

Added O: Nick Senzel walked twice and added a single and a run scored. Tommy Pham and Kyle Farmer added doubles.

Save that ball: Catcher Chris Okey picked up his 1st ML hit with a single.
