CINCINNATI (AP) Sensing that cheap Jorge De La Rosa jersey wasn’t paying attention, the Reds jerseys were off and running.
cheap Jay Bruce jersey had two wholesale mlb jerseys of the Reds jerseys’ five steals in the second inning off De La Rosa their biggest inning on the bases in roughly a century and Cincinnati held on for a 4 3 victory over the Colorado Rockies jerseys on Tuesday night.
cheap Brandon Phillips jersey had four hits, and cheap Billy Hamilton jersey doubled home two runs during Cincinnati’s four run second inning off De La Rosa (1 2). The inning included those record five steals off the left hander’s slow move to the plate. The Reds jerseys hadn’t stolen so many bases during an inning since at least the 1920s, per information provided by the teams from the Elias Sports Bureau.
“A rarity, like an eclipse,” Bruce said.
De La Rosa was having trouble getting his fastball to go where he wanted, so he started throwing more change ups and ignoring runners, who took off at every opportunity. It was the most steals that the Rockies jerseys had ever allowed in an inning.
“I lost my concentration,” De La Rosa said. “I wasn’t paying attention to the runners. I have to do a better job than that.”
Rookie cheap Robert Stephenson jersey (2 0) got his second win as an injury fill in, called up from Triple A earlier in the day because scheduled starter Alfredo Simon has a strained biceps.
Stephenson was the Reds jerseys’ top draft pick in 2011 and made his big league debut in the third game of the season, getting a win over Philadelphia as an injury fill in that time, too. The last Reds jerseys pitcher to win his first two starts in the majors was Larry Luebbers in 1993.
“It eased the nerves a little bit knowing that I’ve been here before and I belong here,” said Stephenson, who lasted five innings against the Phillies jerseys. “Just had a lot more confidence.”
The right hander gave up three hits in seven innings the longest outing by a Reds jerseys starter this season and struck out three.
“He was terrific,” manager Bryan Price said. “He’s our first seven innings pitched. He made the pitches he needed to make, he controlled the running game and he fielded his position. He did the things you have to do to stay here. Hoover gave up cheap Mark Reynolds jersey’ two run homer with two outs in the ninth.
Phillips singled, doubled and tripled in his first three at bats. With a chance to hit for the cycle, he singled up the middle in the eighth inning. cheap Zack Cozart jersey extended his hitting streak to 10 games with an RBI single.
De La Rosa retired only six of the 14 batters he faced, leaving after failing to retire the first two batters in the third inning. It was the seventh time the lefty has gone two or fewer innings, the first since his opening start last season.
The Reds jerseys sent reliever cheap Jumbo Diaz jersey to Triple A Louisville to open a roster spot for Stephenson. Diaz gave up a three run homer during a 5 1 loss to the Rockies jerseys on Monday night, the third homer he allowed this season.
The Rockies jerseys’ previous record for stolen bases allowed in an inning was four also by the Reds jerseys on May 16, 1993, in the bottom of the first inning, per information provided by the Rockies jerseys from Elias. He missed the series opener because of tightness in his groin. He went 0 for 4.
