Rockies

  • Updated

Aristides Aquino hit his first career grand slam an inning after entering as an injury replacement and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Colorado Rockies 10-0 to split a doubleheader. The Rockies won the opener 8-4. Charlie Blackmon’s pinch-hit, two-run single highlighted a four-run seventh and C.J. Cron hit his 25th homer. Aquino got into the  game as the designated hitter in the fifth when Jonathan India exited after fouling a pitch of his right foot. Aquino’s fifth homer of the season came with two outs in the sixth. India went 0 for 3, ending his career-best hitting streak at 16 games. He homered in the opener. Colorado was trying for its first doubleheader sweep since doing it against the Reds in 2014. A rainout Saturday forced this twinbill.

Jonathan India drove in Spencer Steer from third base with a game-ending chopper against Colorado’s five-man infield, sending the Cincinnati Reds past the Rockies 3-2. Steer, who hit his first career home run in the fifth in his major league debut, led off the ninth with a double against Alex Colomé and went to third on a one-out wild pitch. Jake Fraley was intentionally walked and took second on fielder’s indifference. The Rockies moved into the stacked infield with three fielders on the left side. India hit a bouncer up the middle that shifted center fielder Garrett Hampson caught on the grass in front of second base, but he had no play on Steer. India was credited with a single.
