Reds' Votto crushed his grand slam, with a 9-5 victory on Tigers
The Reds added to their lead in the fourth. Peraza walked with one out and Barnhart followed with a double to left.
Joey Votto blasted a grand slam and Sal Romano notched his second consecutive sharp performance as the Cincinnati Reds ended the Detroit Tigers' five-game winning streak with a 9-5 victory on Tuesday night.
Billy Hamilton supplied a solo homer among two hits and scored twice. Tucker Barnhart went 3-for-3 with a walk while scoring twice and driving in a run. Jose Peraza scored three runs and Adam Duvall ripped three hits and drove in two runs.
Romano (4-7) was coming off an eight-inning gem against Kansas City in which he allowed one run on four hits in eight innings. He tossed seven scoreless innings on Tuesday and recorded six strikeouts while allowing four hits and four walks.
Votto then crushed his grand slam to right.
Hamilton's homer over the right field wall sparked a three-run sixth. Barnhart smacked a one-out single, Votto walked and Suarez singled to load the bases. After Scooter Gennett flied out, Duvall doubled to bring in Barnhart and Votto.
Suarez was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the seventh, making it 9-0.
Detroit ended the shutout bid with five runs in the ninth, including Martin's two-run single.
