The second baseman, who is in his first season with the Reds, then capped off his big game in the seventh with his third two-run homer.

"It's the people," Dietrich said after the game. "I love every one of these guys in the clubhouse. The staff, everyone here has made me feel so welcomed. I'm comfortable. They allow me to play and be myself and I'm having so much fun doing it."

Tucker Barnhart also drove in three runs for Cincinnati. Lucas Sims picked up the win after allowing four runs in 7.3 innings.
