That was the tale of the tape…The Reds left 7 runners on base. Jeremy Hellickson started the game for the Phillies and had the Reds’ number, allowing 1 run and 6 hits through 5 innings. Philadelphia handed it to their bullpen and up until a Scooter Gennett 9th inning 2 run home run, kept the Reds in check.
