Wilmer Flores went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run on Monday in Cincinnati. Brandon Crawford reached to open the fourth inning on an error by Eugenio Suarez, and Flores immediately made it hurt by slapping one to the opposite field just over the right field wall. He added singles in his next two trips to the dish, with the final one measuring 109.7 mph off the bat. It's Flores' first three-hit game of the season.

Eugenio Suarez clubbed a solo home run and added a single Monday against the Giants. Suarez hit the second of back-to-back shots off of reliever Matt Wisler in the eighth inning, following Tyler Naquin's solo shot with one of his own. That pulled the Reds to within three, but that's as close as they would get. Suarez has shown some signs of life lately, batting .273 with three dingers, two doubles and nine RBI over his last eight contests. It wasn't all good for him Monday, though, as he made yet another error in the field.
