Tigers vs. Reds Game 2

Cincinnati Reds vs. Detroit Tigers (MLB Inter-League)

Great American Ballpark-Cincinnati, OH:  Back at BABP for the day game.  It was very hot, so we didn’t even bother trying to find our assigned seats, we just moved around the lower level in the shade.  Brian was tired, hot, and cranky, but we were still able to get one photo out of him, but we couldn’t get a smile out of him…

On to the game, as I thought the Tigers might come out swinging as they did in the ninth inning the night before.  They were actually off to a two-run lead after a first inning home run by Jeimer Candelario and a fourth inning dinger by Niko Goodrum.  Last seasons Rookie of the Year Michael Fulmer was keeping the Reds at bay, until the wheels came off in the sixth inning in the form of three runs.  Scooter Gennett, Eugenio Suarez, and Adam Duvall all homered for the Reds, to give Cincinnati five runs in the last three innings.  Tyler Mahle would start and earn the win for the Reds, as Fulmer took the loos for the Tigs.  Final:  Reds 5, Tigers 3.

Always fun to be at the ballpark, but the heat and the Tigers getting creamed two days in a row was a bummer. The Reds were just recently in Detroit and were swept in three games, so that was a little payback for the Tigers.
