Rookie Rece Hinds homers as Reds power past Rockies

reds, rockies

Rookie Rece Hinds belted a 458-foot home run and fell a single shy of the cycle in his second career game to power the Cincinnati Reds past the visiting Colorado Rockies, 12-6, Tuesday night.

After making his major league debut on Monday and drilling a 449-foot homer to the upper deck in left, Hinds mashed his second tape-measure homer in as many days — a drive to the upper portion of the upper deck in right in a four-run seventh for Cincinnati.

Hinds added a triple and a double and became the first player in MLB history to record five extra-base hits in his first two career games. With a chance at history and a cycle, Hinds struck out to end the eighth.

Tyler Stephenson homered and collected three hits, Will Benson clubbed a three-run home run and Spencer Steer added his 14th for the Reds, who have claimed all five meetings with the Rockies this season.

Brenton Doyle connected for a pair of homers, including a 442-foot blast off reliever Buck Farmer in the eighth. The Rockies fell to 0-2 on their seven-game road trip and 12-33 on the road for the season, the worst such mark in the National League.

Cincinnati lefty starter Nick Lodolo returned from a two-week stint on the injured list due to a blister on his left hand and appeared in a groove early, striking out the side in the first before a 44-minute rain delay appeared to disrupt his rhythm.

Nick Martinez (3-5) allowed one hit and no runs while striking out three over 1 1/3 innings to record the win in relief.

The Reds did big damage before heavy rains fell when they plated five runs in the second off Colorado starter and loser Cal Quantrill (6-7).

Stephenson solo homer and Benson’s three-run homer highlighted a five-run second. Jeimer Candelario drove a ball into the stands in right that was initially ruled a two-run homer and would’ve given Cincinnati a 7-0 lead but was reviewed and changed to a foul ball.

Following the delay, Hunter Goodman doubled to left-center for Colorado’s first hit off Lodolo, who then hit Ezequiel Tovar with a pitch before Brendan Rodgers flew out to right to end the inning.

Lodolo retired the first two batters of the fourth but the inning quickly unraveled. Doyle clubbed a solo homer to right-center, his 12th, and Michael Toglia added a two-run long ball, his 11th, to cut Cincinnati’s lead to 5-3.
