As the Cincinnati Reds returned from an abysmal road trip in which they were swept by the St. Louis Cardinals, the club had a big opportunity to get back to winning against the Atlanta Braves. However, it wasn't meant to be as the Braves took down the Reds 8-0 Thursday evening at Great American Ballpark.
Reds starter David Holmberg, who was recently recalled from Triple-A Louisville, had an outing that lasted just two and two-thirds of an inning giving up six earned runs on five hits while also walking four batters.
"Definitely not what I wanted to do," Holmberg said. "The team needed a good start. They need to win ballgames. I wanted to go out and try and win a ballgame and didn't execute pitches. Once again, they took advantage of it."
"We were hoping for a few more innings there and it didn't work out," Reds manager Bryan Price said.
