Phillies fall
Christopher Sanchez's start for the Phillies proved to be short-lived, lasting just three innings against the Reds in an 8-1 loss at Great American Ball Park on Tuesday. 

Despite an early run courtesy of an Alec Bohm RBI-double that plated J.T. Realmuto in the opening frame, the Phillies' offensive momentum fizzled out, unable to sustain pressure on the Reds' pitching. Sanchez faced a tough outing, surrendering five runs, with only one being earned, on four hits during his brief time on the mound. 

His performance was marred by defensive lapses that allowed the Reds to capitalize on scoring opportunities. Despite striking out three batters, Sanchez struggled with command, issuing three walks that contributed to the Reds' offensive onslaught. 

The loss snapped the Phillies seven-game winning streak. 

Nick Castellanos finished 0-for-4 in the contest, dropping his average to .184 on the season. 

The two clubs resume their series on Wednesday with Spencer Turnbull opposing Nick Lodolo.
