Tyler Stephenson and Nick Castellanos hit consecutive home runs, Kyle Farmer broke open the game with a grand slam and the Cincinnati Reds kept alive their slim playoff hopes by routing the Washington Nationals 9-2 Sunday. Cincinnati won its third straight and is six games behind St. Louis for the second NL wild card with six games left, tied with Philadelphia. “All these games are important," Reds manager David Bell said.
Nick Castellanos hit a solo home run with one out in the ninth inning and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Washington Nationals 7-6 on Saturday night. Cincinnati won back-to-back home games for the first time since sweeping Miami in a four-game series Aug. 19-22. “That’s all we can do," Castellanos said.
