CINCINNATI (AP) — Tucker Barnhart’s first career grand slam capped the Cincinnati Reds’ five-run first inning, giving Anthony DeSclafani all the support he needed to beat his former team in a 6-3 win over the Miami Marlins on Tuesday night.
Scott Schebler had three hits and Joey Votto a sacrifice fly as the Reds beat the Miami for the first time in five tries this season.
With Miami leading 1-0, the Reds loaded the bases with three straight two-out singles in the first against Jose Urena (1-4), who was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans earlier Tuesday.
Ivan De Jesus Jr.’s walk forced in the tying run. Barnhart’s seventh home run this season extended his career-high hitting streak to 12 games.
