Despite continuing heroics from Dewayne Wise and Edwin Encarnación, the Reds lost to the Phillies 4-1 yesterday afternoon in Clearwater.
Justin Germano allowed three runs on five hits through four innings of work. Jake Robbins, Ryan Wagner, and Mike Burns each pitched a scoreless inning. Todd Coffey gave up a run in his inning of work.
Wise provided the entirety of the Reds score with a home run in the first inning. Wise also threw out a runner at home from right field to save Germano even more pain. Encarnación went 2-for-3 with a double.
The loss brings the Reds' record to 7-6. The Reds host the Twins tonight at 7:05 p.m.
