The Reds defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-4 on Wednesday afternoon, salvaging one game of their three game series as the Diamondbacks won on Monday and Tuesday night.
“We got six RBIs from our corner outfielders,” Reds manager Jim Riggleman said. “You never can ask for that. But you've got to get production from your corner outfielders.”
The Diamondbacks pulled out to an early lead as first baseman Paul Goldschmidt hit a two run homer and left fielder David Peralta had an RBI single in the first inning, followed by a solo home run by catcher John Ryan Murphy in the third. However, the Reds picked things up in the fourth as left fielder Adam Duvall hit a grand slam home run in the fourth to tie the game up. The team then continued the momentum into the sixth as right fielder Scott Schebler had a two run shot to give the Reds their first lead of the game. Third baseman Eugenio Suarez added an insurance run in the ninth on an RBI single, as the Reds went on to win 7-4.
Reds starting pitcher Sal Romano earned the win with five innings pitched while allowing four earned runs on seven hits but no walks. Diamondbacks starter Patrick Corbin allowed six earned runs on eight hits and a walk as he was saddled with the loss. Reds reliever Raisel Iglesias picked up the save.

The Rockies then followed that inning up with a two run homer in the seventh off the bat of first baseman Ian Desmond and while the Reds would score another run in the ninth as shortstop Jose Peraza came home on a wild pitch, but the Rockies hung on to win 8-2.

The Reds lost the first game of their three game series to the Colorado Rockies on Friday night 5-4, as the Reds look to finish their second west coast road trip strong.
“We had a lead,” Reds manager Jim Riggleman said. “In this ballpark, it was so early that we know we had to add on runs and we didn't. Both clubs actually had chances to add on runs and missed those opportunity. I certainly didn't think it was going to be a 5-4 ballgame.”
The game started out with the Reds getting a strong first inning as second baseman Scooter Gennett smacked an RBI single and right fielder Scott Schebler got an RBI groundout, but the Rockies responded in the bottom of the inning as third baseman Nolan Arenado hit a solo home run to cut the lead in half. In the third, the Reds had a homer of their own with third baseman Eugenio Suarez hitting a two run shot, but that would be all the offense for the Reds as the Rockies responded in the bottom half as left fielder Gerardo Parra hit an RBI single and catcher Tony Wolters drew a bases loaded walk, then got the go-ahead run in the sixth as pinch hitter Noel Cuevas came off the bench and hit an RBI triple. The Reds would be unable to respond as the Rockies held on to take the 5-4 win.
Rockies starting pitcher Jon Gray threw six innings, allowing four earned runs, six hits and three walks to get the win, while Reds starter Sal Romano gave up five earned runs on eight hits and four walks over five and a third innings on the way to the loss.
The teams will play again on Saturday night.
