History was made today at Great American Ball Park but not the kind the Reds would want to place in their trophy case.
The Reds allowed five runs in the first inning of an Opening Day game for the first time since 1877 when they allowed five runs in the first frame of a 24-6 loss to Louisville.
The Cubs just scored seven runs in the top of the sixth inning. That's the most in an inning by a Reds opponent on Opening Day since the Giants scored eight runs in the second inning of an 11-5 win over the Reds in 1979.
Reds trail the Cubs, 12-6, in the bottom of the sixth at frigid Great American Ball Park.
