Reds Lose Despite Five Homers



The Reds (71-74) and Rockies (68-77) combined to hit nine home runs (five by the Reds) as the Rockies came out on top in an epic home run derby, winning 12-7.

Let's recap the action with the good, the bad, and some notables on the affair:

The Good
-Chris Heisey went 3-4 with two solo homers.
-Joey Votto was also 3-4 with a solo shot and two RBIs.
-Juan Francisco put his power on display again hitting a two run jack.
-Jay Bruce also added a solo home run.

The Bad
-Brandon Phillips went 0-5. He must have stayed out too late with @jimmiadair and @willpower36.
-Drew Stubbs was 0-4 with a K, raising his season total to 187.
-Devin Mesoraco went 0-3 and dropped his season average so far to .143.
-Aroldis Chapman faced two batters and was charged with two earned runs without getting an out.
-The worst of the bad was Bronson Arroyo who made it through only one inning, giving up six earned runs, including three home runs.

The Notables
-Heisey, Votto, and Bruce blasted back-to-back-to-back home runs in the 5th inning to tie the game at 7-7.
-Bronson Arroyo's three homers allowed put his season total at 40, tying him with Eric Milton for the most allowed in a single season in franchise history.
