In the first three-game series against the Rockies, right handed Lisalverto Bonilla, who came back from Triple-A Louisville will make his second start for Cincinnati Friday. Another ugly outing for the veteran right-hander, who holds a 6.75 ERA in nine starts covering 46 2/3 innings.

Schebler highlighted a six-run sixth inning with a go-ahead three-run home run, and Asher Wojciechowski pitched effectively in relief as the Reds rallied for a 12-8 victory over the Colorado Rockies on a wild afternoon at Great American Ball Park. He's the only Reds starter to go more than five innings during the losing streak. Cincinnati are 6-2 in their last 8 home games and the over is 9-4 in CIN last 13 home games while Cincinnati are 18-40 in their last 58 Sunday games. It started with an unusual occurrence - a Nolan Arenado error where he rushed a barehanded attempt on Billy Hamilton but instead deflected the ball of his own face, needing to take a moment to recover from a cut he suffered just under his left eye. Granted, the under is 7-1 in Freeland's last eight starts overall. Norris was lit up for five earned runs off of seven hits in 5 2/3 innings in a 5-3 loss to the Rangers.

In the past 11 games, Cincinnati has been outscored 22-3 in the first inning.

Friday night will be Bonilla's first appearance against the Rockies, who are in the midst of a season-long 11-day, 10-game road trip.

"I've seen that from him before", Black said. Reds SS Zack Cozart was out of the lineup Sunday with right wrist soreness. He's expected back on Monday. He had been stuck on 199 career homers since April 25, but finally hit number 200, making him the fifth player in franchise history to reach that mark.

Amarista hit his first homer of the season as a pinch hitter on April 29 at Arizona, ending a streak of 251 at-bats without a homer since last August 3. First pitch is 2:10 p.m. MDT.

It was the first time a Rockies pitcher has had multiple extra-base hits since Juan Nicasio in 2011. It's the first time the Reds have allowed six or more runs in an inning during consecutive games since 2010 at San Francisco. After walking Jose Peraza and allowing the third stolen base of the inning, the Rockies were looking at a second-and-third, nobody out situation with Joey Votto at the plate.

Matt Reynolds, Curtis Granderson and Jay Bruce hit home runs as the Mets tried to rally. Their 15 road wins are the most in the NL.

Ian Desmond's RBI single put the Rockies ahead 4-3.

Gomes' 5 RBIs help Indians sweep Astros HOUSTON - Yan Gomes homered and tied a career high with five RBIs to lead the Cleveland Indians over the Houston Astros 8-6 on Sunday and complete a three-game sweep.
