CINCINNATI (AP) — The San Diego Padres didn’t exactly enjoy their soggy stay in Cincinnati. Eric Hosmer got a nice parting gift from the Reds‘ cozy riverside ballpark http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-brandon-finnegan-jersey , though.Hosmer led off the ninth inning with a home run to lift the Padres over the Reds 7-6 on Sunday night after a lengthy rain delay in the middle of the eighth inning.Hosmer took Raisel Iglesias (2-4) deep for his third homer in three days — the first time he’s strung three together in his career. It ended a rain-soaked four-game series that featured 5 hours, 22 minutes of delays.“It was great to get it quickly,” San Diego manager Andy Green said. “It couldn’t have happened any quicker. He’s swinging the bat well. It was a big series for him.”Reds interim manager Jim Riggleman considered Iglesias a victim of his home park.“We don’t make too many excuses for the home runs,” Rigggleman said. “We give up a lot of homers, but that was a Great American Ball Park homer. Hosmer’s a good hitter, but this might be the only ballpark it goes out of.”Austin Hedges and Luis Urias each hit a two-run homer to help San Diego overcome a three-run blast from Joey Votto and salvage a split.Rain caused a delay of 1 hour, 32 minutes in the eighth, even after Sunday’s first pitch was pushed back three hours from the scheduled 1:10 p.m. start time in hopes of avoiding bad weather. Saturday’s game started an hour earlier than scheduled and was cancelled after 6 ½ innings Reggie Sanders Jersey , resulting in the Reds’ rain-shortened 7-2 win.“It seemed like it was a week long, and we were in this clubhouse the entire time,” Hosmer said of the lengthy series. “We were happy to get out of a day like this with a win. Basically, we just wanted to get the heck out of here. That’s what everybody was thinking.”Craig Stammen (7-2) pitched the eighth and Kirby Yates the ninth for his seventh save.After going 36 games without a home run, Votto tied the score with his second in two games, an opposite-field, three-run shot to left-center field that capped Cincinnati’s five-run fifth inning and tied it 6-6.Rookie Tyler Mahle, making his first start since being recalled from Triple-A Louisville and taking Homer Bailey’s rotation slot Johnny Bench Jersey , lasted only three trouble-filled innings. The Padres placed at least two runners on base in each inning and cashed in with Hedges’ 12th homer of the season in the third. Mahle, in his first Reds start since August 6, allowed five hits and two runs with three walks and five strikeouts.The Reds were hitless through the first three innings before collecting seven hits and scoring six runs in the next two against San Diego starter Jacob Nix. The rookie right-hander walked two batters and struck out a career-high five in five innings.STREAK’S ALIVESan Diego has won six consecutive season series against Cincinnati since the Reds went 6-2 against the Padres in 2012.

The Washington Nationals reportedly offered free-agent outfielder Bryce Harper a 10-year deal worth $300 million.According to Chelsea Janes of theWashington Post, that offer did not include any opt-out clauses.Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic noted the Nats likely knew Harper wouldn't accept the offer, and he mentioned Washington as a "fallback" for Harper if he doesn't get the deal he wants.Rosenthal added that Harper is hoping to receive a bigger contract than the 13-year, $325 million deal New York Yankees slugger Giancarlo Stanton signed with the Miami Marlins in 2014.Last year http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-joe-morgan-jersey , an anonymous MLB general manager suggested to ESPN.com'sEddie Matzthat Harper could land a $400 million contract in free agency.On Tuesday, Nationals GM Mike Rizzo toldESPN.comthat Washington isn't giving up on bringing Harper back into the fold:"We've had conversations and we utilized our exclusivity to negotiate with him late in the season through when he became eligible to sign with a team. We didn't get anything done, but he's a guy that is near and dear to us and we are not closing any doors."The 26-year-old Harper is coming off his sixth All-Star nod in seven MLB seasons after he hit .249 with 34 home runs and 100 RBI in 2018.While Harper's batting average left something to be desired, he walked an MLB-leading 130 times and posted an on-base percentage of .393, good for ninth in the majors.Harper made his MLB debut in 2012, just two years after the Nationals selected him with the No. 1 overall pick in the MLB draft.He was named the National League Rookie of the Year, and three seasons after that, he won the National League MVP Award when he hit .330 with 42 homers and 99 RBI.In 927 career games Dave Concepcion Jersey , Harper is hitting .279 with 184 home runs and 521 RBI.Because of his age and impressive resume, Harper is seemingly in line to land a record-breaking contract. His agent, Scott Boras, has the reputation and skills to get him that sort of deal.Harper leads a strong free-agent class that includes shortstop Manny Machado, starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel, closer Craig Kimbrel and several other top-flight options.
