Zack Cozart refuses to stop.

He’s having a career year, of course, but those pesky lingering leg injuries and a dry middle infield trade market has kept him a Red through the non-waiver trade deadline. Considering his inexpensive (in perspective) contract versus current production, it seems unlikely he’d make it through the August waiver trade period. Thus, he’s a Red until the end of the year, at which point the Reds will have to make a decision.

They’re cool with that tonight. Cozart bashed his 15th HR in the top of the 1st inning tonight, and then reached base three more times with two hits and a walk. In all, he batted in two runs and scored three himself, watching his average rise to .320 on the season. Plenty of Reds batters had stellar nights, but the dinger and the likelihood of Zack’s tenure with the only team he’s ever knowns coming to an end sooner than later, he gets another 2017 trophy to stock with his ASG start and corresponding donkey.

Honorable mention to Eugenio Suarez, who hit three times and walked twice and was on base all the time and should’ve won this award if I weren’t being sentimental. He batted in two, as well. Joey Votto ran his hitting streak to 16 and was on base four times as well, scoring two runs. Tucker Barnhart had two hits, including a dinger while Billy Hamilton hit once and walked twice and stole thrice and scored twice. Jesse Winker hit twice more, upping his average by about 20 points, while Scooter Gennett had two more RBI. Homer Bailey didn’t have his best stuff, but worked around five walks to allow only two runs in 5 IP. And Wandy Peralta and Raisel Iglesias, for not puking on their dicks in relief, unlike their earlier counterparts.
