» PHOTOS: Reds vs. Pirates
The Pirates loaded the bases with one out against Harvey in the first but didn’t score. Corey Dickerson flied out to center field, and Colin Moran struck out to end the inning.
“I think being the first home game, I was a little amped up in the first and kind of got all out of sorts,” Harvey said. “That could have gone the wrong way obviously.”
Big picture: The Reds improved to 17-32. Their .347 winning percentage, if it stands up, would be the second worst in franchise history. They are on pace to finish 56-106.
Big hit: Scooter Gennett hit a grand slam in the fifth to give the Reds a 6-2 lead. He has five grand slams in two seasons with the Reds. He's tied for seventh for most grand slams in franchise history. He added two more RBIs and is tied for the team lead with Eugenio Suarez with 33 RBIs.
Strong start: Gennett and Eugenio Suarez hit back-to-back RBI doubles to give the Reds a 2-0 lead in the first inning.
