Reds 12 Rockies 6

Rece Hinds clobbered a double, triple and homer to make MLB history. The Reds busted out their bats for a five run second, a four run 7th, and a four homer night.

The Reds led 5-0, the Rockies cut it to 5-4 following a 44 minute 3rd inning rain delay, the Reds scored the game's next six runs to lead 11-4.

Rece Hinds: 3 H, 2B, 3B, 458-foot HR, 2 RBI...Needing a single for the cycle in the 8th, he struck out. His five extra-base hits (2B-HR-2B-3B-HR) are the most by a player in his first two career games. His 2B was at 110.1 mph and HR 112.7 mph. I guarantee you if pitchers continue to throw him strikes, he will continue to obliterate baseballs.

Struck out the side in the 1st. Momentum halted after 44 minute rain delay in 3rd: Allowed 2B, HBP before getting final out. Then a four run 4th, all after two were out, Brenton Doyle HR, Michael Toglia 2-R HR, single. Done.
