Notes from the Reds’ 13-9 slug fest loss to Cubs

The Reds fell short in a 13-9 loss to the Cubs. The two met for the fifth time in the last eight games, and like the series before, it didn’t disappoint.

  • Third baseman Eugenio Suarez collected a career-high five RBIs.
  • In 21 games this month, Suarez is hitting .333 with six homers and 16 RBIs.
  • Pitcher Homer Bailey left after three innings as a precautionary measure. He felt some irritation in his right shoulder.
  • Billy Hamilton made an error, his first since May 2. That ends a 93-game errorless streak.
  • Adam Duvall extended his hitting streak to seven games.
  • Duvall also added to his majors-most assist total (12).
  • Scooter Gennett's homered in three of his last eight plate appearances
  • In a true rarity, three Reds pitchers had hits (Bailey, Shackelford, Lorenzen) for the first time since 1999
