Montas pitched seven innings on Wednesday night, allowing five runs, including two home runs. He allowed two walks and struck out seven strikeouts. Montas’ ERA this season is now 4.38.

The Reds caught up in the ninth round, but fell short of expectations

Trailing 6-2 to start the ninth inning, the Reds offense came alive but fell just short. Tyler Stephenson hit his eighth home run of the season to cut the deficit to three runs. Austin Wynns and Noelvi Marte hit singles before Rece Hinds flew out to right field. With two on base and one out, Santiago Espiunal hit a single to center to make the game 6-4. Jonathan India added a sacrifice fly to cut the deficit to one run, but Elly De La Cruz threw a groundout to shortstop to end the game.
