Reds run it back....walk it off.......again. Beat Rays 5-4 in 10 innings.

Reds 5 Rays 4 (10 innings)

Nick Senzel singled to score Matt Reynolds as the Reds walked off the Rays for the second consecutive day with two runs in the bottom of the 10th inning to ignite a celebration of  33,927 fans Saturday at GABP.

Repeat that: It's the fourth walkoff win over the last seven days for the Reds after having none prior this season.

The comeback: Trailing 4-3 to start the 10th, Matt Reynolds singled to start the inning. Kyle Farmer scored on a wild pitch to tie the game. Donovan Solano singled to set up the heroics for Senzel. The Rays did not record an out in the 10th.

Sizzzlin' Senzel's single capped another big day for the Reds CF: two hits, a walk and two RBI. It was his first career walkoff hit. He's 23 for his last 54 (.426).

All-Star-to-be: Brandon Drury collected four hits, including twou doubles and RBI. The four hits tied a career high. He has 50 RBI.

Heeeee's back: Tyler Stephenson came off the IL and delivered two hits.

Wildy effective: Hunter Greene was a little wild, but mostly excellent: 6 IN, 3 H, 1 R, 4 BB, 9 K. 114 pitches/68 strikes. His fastball averaged 100.1 mph.
He threw 38 pitches at 100+ mph and got 22 swing and misses....12 on his fastball, 10 on the slider.

Bullpen: Buck Farmer 1.0, 0 R.....Ian Gibaut 1.0, 2 R.....Hunter Strickland, pitching for 5th time this week 1.0, 0 R.....Jeff Hoffman 1.0, 1 unearned run (W).
The Rays used seven relievers to cover the final six innings.

About time: The Senzel game-winner capped a frustrating day for the Reds offense. They started the game 0 for 10 with runners in scoring position and would finish 4 of 16 .

Yikes: Mike Moustakas was 0 for 3 with 3 K and looked old and clumsy at 1B on a race to make a play at the bag.....he lost the footrace on an infield single.
