The Cincinnati Reds recovered well from a terrible game on Thursday night in Cleveland by hitting the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night. But not everything was good despite the blowout. Nick Senzel led the match with a walk and later in the inning went 1st to 3rd on a single by Matt Davidson, but seemed to feel something between 2nd and 3rd base. However, he remained in the game. He helped the Reds collect in six rounds in the second round with a sacrificial fly. In the 4th inning, Senzel struck out, and when the bottom of the inning began, he was replaced in the field by Travis Jankowski. Röden announced that he had left the game with a left groin.
However, this was not the last time the damage protection appeared for the Reds. Pedro Strop came out to start the 8th round. He went to Orlando Arcia to start the inning, and then midway through the bat against Brock Holt, Strop also suffered a groin injury and he left the game and was replaced by Lucas Sims. Sims would complete the bat-bat against Holt with a walk, but it was charged Strop. A double play followed, but Christian Yelich home, which gave both Strop and Sims a earned run as a result.
After the game manager, David Bell said that he did not yet have an update on either Senzel or Strop or the extent of their injuries. “We have to see how they are tomorrow (Saturday).”
Before the game, Bell had an update from second baseman Mike Moustakas.
“Continues only to receive treatment,” Bell said. “Hopefully we will get him back at any time. We are really pushing to get him back to start a game no later than the Tuesday after this day.”
He later clarified that he was not available to squeeze here.
