Cincinnati Reds right fielder Phillip Ervin, front, is doused with an ice bath by pitcher Sal Romano, left, after their 13-10 win in a baseball game against the Chicago Cubs, Thursday, Aug. 17, 2017, in Chicago. Ervin hit a two-run homer to snap a tie in the seventh inning and had four RBIs in his first major league start.

The Reds broke out the bats against Cubs starter Jon Lester.

Cincinnati put up nine runs on Lester in the second inning. It was the most they’ve scored in a frame since scoring 10 in the sixth inning of a 12-5 win over the Tigers on Aug. 24, 2015.

From Joey Votto’s homer to Phillip Ervin’s broken bat single to Jose Peraza’s hit bouncing off Jon Jay, the Reds’ offense had quite an inning (and day).

Cincinnati went on to win 13-10.
