After homering for his first career hit Wednesday, Phillip Ervin’s encore was even better.
Ervin hit a two-run, tie-breaking home run and added four RBIs in his first start, emerging as the difference in the Reds’ 13-10 shootout victory against the Cubs.
It was the 25-year-old’s fifth game. He also had a single and double in his four at-bats. He even stole a base.
