Reds hit four homers to avoid sweep

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Reds pegged Jake Peavy early with three of their four home runs in the second inning en route to a 7-4 win over the Giants on Wednesday to avoid the sweep. 

“We have to savor every victory,” said manager Bryan Price after the Reds second win in the last ten games. “We have to let it roll into the next day. You’re always chasing that good feeling at the end of the day. That’s what has to always keep us motivated.” 

Dan Straily snagged his first winning performance in a Reds uniform giving up just six hits and three earned runs six and a third innings. He also struck out four in the Reds fourth consecutive game with a starting pitcher delivering a quality start. 

“It’s huge,” said Straily on his quality start. “It gives us a chance to utilize the bullpen arms in the way that they’re designed instead of having to eat so many innings and tiring guys out. It’s been huge for the starting staff to step up.” 

After missing two games with tendinitis in his surgically repaired knee, Zack Cozart picked up where he left off going 1-for-4 with a two-run home run.  Brandon Phillips, Adam Duvall and Eugenio Suarez, who went 3-for-4 with three RBI also homered in the Reds’ win.

“It’s the best I’ve felt all year,” said Cozart. “I didn’t have one little pain in my knee or anything. That’s how I look at my games now…getting out there and doing whatever I can to help the team win and feeling healthy.”

With Ross Ohlendorf giving up an earned run in the ninth inning, the Reds’ bullpen has now given up a run in 22 straight games, extending its own major league record of 21 games. 

The Reds (11-17) now open a four-game set with the Brewers at Great American Ball Park on Thursday at 7:10 p.m.
