TJ Friedl had a two-run homer, an RBI single and two walks to lift the Reds past the Pirates 4-2 on Sunday.
Friedl had the series of his life against the Pirates, going 6-for-8 with three homers, a double, six walks and two steals. It’s too bad his teammates could drive him in only one of the nine times he was on base while losing two out of three games. Friedl added 40 points of OPS in the series, putting him at .819. He has 17 homers this season, 13 of which have come in Cincinnati.
