Red 12 Rockies 6

Rece Hinds doubled, tripled and homered to make MLB history. The Reds struck out their bats for a five run second, a four run 7th and a four homer night.

The Reds led 5-0, but the Rockies cut it to 5-4 after the third inning was delayed 44 minutes by rain. The Reds scored the next six runs of the game to lead 11-4.

Rece Hinds: 3 H, 2B, 3B, 458-foot HR, 2 RBI…He needed a single to cycle in the 8th, but 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 was 112.7 mph. I guarantee you if pitchers keep throwing him strikes, he’ll keep destroying baseballs.
