The game between the Phillies and the Reds belonged to the pitching staff as both starters were impressive in their first game of the season.

The Phillies Aaron Nova tossed seven innings, allowing just one run on four hits, while striking out eight batters.  On the other side of the diamond, Cincinnati sent Brandon Finnegan to the mound and he also impressed by tossing six innings, allowing two runs on three hits, with nine strikeouts.

Finnegan gave up two early runs in the first on a two-run shot off the bat of Maikel Franco, before settling down and not allowing a run for the rest of his outing. At one point in the game he even retired 10 straight Phillies batters.

Nova gave up his run in the first as well on a long ball off the bat of Eugenio Suarez, then settled down and didn’t give up a run until his departure after the seventh inning.

The Reds finally broke through in the bottom of the ninth on a bases loaded RBI double off the bat of Scott Schebler to complete the walk-off victory.

The Reds improve to 2-0, while the Phillies drop to 0-2.
