Not much to that one. Cards RHP Kyle Gibson took a no-hitter to the 6th. Andrew Abbott allowed a season high six runs. The Reds were outhit 13-4.

The Reds four game win streak is history as they drop to 24-31.

Scoreless streak ended at 14.0 innings. Nolan Arenado rocketed two-run HR in 4th. Three one pitch outs. Four pitch 5th.
Escaped trouble in 6th after B-B full counts into BB, 1B. Allowed three run 7th after Reds cut deficit to 3-1.
Four pitch walk to open the 7th and was followed by a Nolan Gorman 2-run HR. Not sure why he survived the walk, or even started the 7th.
