Reds score in 5 straight innings, crush Rockies

rockies, reds

Jeimer Candelario homered and doubled, Tyler Stephenson also went deep as part of a 2-for-5 night and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Colorado Rockies 13-3 in Denver on Monday.

Jonathan India and Spencer Steer had three hits apiece and TJ Friedl and Will Benson each had two for Cincinnati, which finished with a season-high 18. The 13 runs were also a season high.

Reds starter Andrew Abbott (4-5) allowed three runs on seven hits in six innings. He walked one and struck out six.

Brendan Rodgers homered and finished with two hits while Brenton Doyle contributed three hits for Colorado, which has dropped three in a row.

In 4 1/3 innings, Rockies starter Ryan Feltner (1-5) allowed eight runs on 10 hits. He didn’t walk anyone and fanned three.

The Rockies took a 1-0 lead on Elehuris Montero’s RBI single in the first inning. Cincinnati tied it in the second on a double-play grounder that plated Steer, then went in front in the third.

With two outs, Elly De La Cruz hit an RBI double before scoring on Candelario’s seventh home run of the season, which put the Reds ahead 4-1.

Colorado answered in the bottom of the frame on Rodgers’ solo shot, his third home run of the year, and a run-scoring single by Jacob Stallings to get within 4-3, but Cincinnati kept pulling away an inning later.

Benson’s two-out triple drove in Stephenson and India, and then Benson scored on Friedl’s single. Candelario doubled in the fifth and eventually scored on Jake Fraley’s groundout that made it 8-3.

With Feltner out of the game by the sixth, the Reds kept adding on to their lead against the Colorado bullpen.

Nick Martini led off the sixth with a double and later scored on a sacrifice fly before Steer drove in two more runs with a single to cap Cincinnati’s fifth straight inning with at least one run.

Stephenson’s two-run blast in the ninth off Angel Chivilli capped the scoring. It was Stephenson’s sixth homer this season.
