The Cincinnati Reds, buoyed by the explosive debut of rookie Rece Hinds, look to extend their winning streak against the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night in the third contest of their four-game series.

After starting their 10-game homestand with three losses to the Detroit Tigers, the Reds have turned the tide with consecutive wins against the Rockies. Despite injuries to outfielders TJ Friedl (hamstring strain) and Stuart Fairchild (spine disc), and Jake Fraley’s absence due to a family medical emergency, Hinds’ debut has injected new energy into the team.

Rece Hinds’ Historic Debut

Hinds, 23, made a statement in his major league debut on Monday, smashing a 449-foot home run and hitting a double for his first career hit in the Reds’ 6-0 victory. He followed this remarkable start on Tuesday with a double, a triple, and a towering 459-foot homer to the upper deck, contributing to Cincinnati’s 12-6 win. Hinds became the first MLB player since at least 1901 to record five extra-base hits over his first two career games.

“That’s pretty awesome,” Hinds remarked. “I knew I was doing some pretty cool stuff, but no, I didn’t. I try not to look up at the board and look at numbers. I kind of try to stay to my core, stay humble, and do my thing.”

Hinds had an opportunity to hit for the cycle on Tuesday, but struck out in the eighth inning. Regardless, his performance has already made a significant impact.

Reds’ Pitching Strategy

For the third game of the series, the Reds will start right-hander Frankie Montas (4-6, 4.19 ERA). Montas, making his 17th start of the season, is coming off a strong performance where he allowed two runs on four hits over five innings, securing a win in an 8-4 victory over the New York Yankees. Montas has a 2-2 record with a 3.38 ERA in his career against the Rockies, including his best start of the season on June 4, when he pitched seven shutout innings, allowing just one hit in a 4-1 win.

Rockies’ Counterattack

The Rockies will counter with left-hander Kyle Freeland (0-3, 6.62 ERA), who will make his fourth start since returning from a strained left elbow. In his last outing, Freeland allowed two runs (one earned) on seven hits over seven innings, resulting in a no-decision in Colorado’s 4-2 win over Kansas City. Freeland has a 3-2 record with a 6.34 ERA in seven career starts against the Reds.

Rockies’ Offensive Highlights

Despite the Reds’ dominance, the Rockies showcased their own power with Brenton Doyle hitting two home runs on Tuesday, marking the second time this month and the third time in his career. Doyle’s second homer, a 442-foot shot off Buck Farmer, underscored his hitting prowess.

“He is swinging great,” Rockies manager Bud Black commented. “He’s in a great spot. He’s hitting the ball to all fields, he’s on time, he’s hitting all pitches. He’s doing his part, and we need other guys to do their part offensively. And we need to pitch better.”

Conclusion

The Reds, led by the phenomenal debut of Rece Hinds and bolstered by solid pitching from Frankie Montas, are poised to continue their winning streak against the Rockies. With the momentum of their recent victories and Hinds’ historic performance, Cincinnati fans have much to look forward to in the remainder of the series.
