Eventually, the Rockies would suffer through a 17-9 marathon loss to the Reds, a game that ended more than seven hours after it.

With the game tied at 5-5 heading into the Colorado fifth, the Rockies got home runs from Story and Murphy and led 7-5. With five hits under his belt, just one home run shy of hitting for the cycle, the outfielder stepped up to bat one last time in the ninth.

The Reds moved ahead in the sixth. He threw five innings, allowing four runs on six hits with four walks and four strikeouts in a game that the Reds won 6-5.

Furthermore, once the game started, the Reds went down 4-0 in the first inning as six of the first seven Rockies who came to the plate got hits off Reds starter Tanner Roark. He has surrendered 101 hits in 86.1 innings and has walked (41) nearly as many batters as he has whiffed (48). Jared Hughes (3-2) replaced Roark with two on and two out in the fifth and got Chris Iannetta to fly out to left to end the inning. Diaz gave up a two-run homer to Puig, the first batter he faced.

Reds Injuries: Alex Wood: 60-day IL (back), Amir Garrett: 10-day IL (lat), Scooter Gennett: day-to-day (illness), Tucker Barnhart: 10-day IL (oblique). "The reports were that he felt good and actually he pitched better than the results", manager David Bell said.

To make roster room for the recall of Freeland, the Rockies optioned utility man Pat Valaika to Triple-A Albuquerque. It was the seventh loss in the last eight games for the Rockies and dropped Colorado to 45-46 on the season.

They sat through a 3-hour, 10-minute rain delay on Saturday night before playing a long, high-scoring game that lasted until the early hours on Sunday. The Cincinnati pitching staff has a combined team ERA of 3.80, Tyler Mahle paces the staff with a mark of 4.57.

Senzatela, a 24-year-old right-hander, has had his ups and downs this season as evidenced by his 5.32 ERA in 16 starts.

Yasiel Puig went 4-for-6 with a two-run homer and four RBI in the Reds' blowout win over the Rockies on Saturday.

Daniel Murphy had four hits for the Rockies. Mahle has held the opposition to three earned runs or fewer in six of his past seven outings, but getting mileage out of him has been the issue, as he's lasted more than five innings just twice in his past eight starts. The Rockies entered Saturday third in the NL West, 13.5 games behind the Dodgers: they were 1.5 games behind the Phillies for the second wild-card spot.
