Cincinnati starter Matt Harvey, in perhaps his last start for the Reds before Tuesday's non-waiver trade deadline, made himself more marketable. The former Met allowed two runs and two hits in five innings. Acquired May 8 for catcher Devin Mesoraco, Harvey walked two and struck out five. Both runs scored on Rhys Hoskins' third home run of the series and 21st of the season in the fourth.
Vince Velasquez worked through a season-high five walks to last five innings, giving up two runs on six hits with four strikeouts. Velasquez struck out the last two batters he faced to escape a bases-loaded jam in the fifth before Tommy Hunter (2-1) allowed two runs in the sixth.
