Rookie Rece Hinds homers as Reds power past Rockies

Rookie Rece Hinds belted a 458-foot home run and fell a single shy of the cycle in his second career big-league game to power the Cincinnati Reds past the visiting Colorado Rockies, 12-6, on Tuesday night.After making his major league debut on Monday and drilling a 449-foot blast to the upper deck in left-center, Hinds mashed his second tape-measure homer in as many days — a drive to the upper portion of the upper deck in left during a four-run seventh for Cincinnati.Hinds added a triple and a double and became the first player in the majors since at least 1901 to record five extra-base hits in his first two career games. With a chance at history and a cycle, Hinds struck out to end the eighth.Tyler Stephenson went deep and collected three hits, Will Benson clubbed a three-run home run and Spencer Steer added his 14th homer of the season for the Reds, who have claimed all five meetings with the Rockies this season.Brenton Doyle connected for a pair of homers, including a 442-foot blast off reliever Buck Farmer in the eighth. The Rockies fell to 0-2 on their seven-game road trip and dropped to 12-33 on the road for the season, the worst mark away from home in the National League.Cincinnati starter Nick Lodolo returned from a two-week stint on the injured list due to a blister on his left hand and appeared in a groove early, striking out the side in the first before a 44-minute rain delay in the third appeared to disrupt his rhythm.Nick Martinez (3-5) allowed one hit and no runs while striking out three over 1 1/3 innings to record the win in relief.
