Cincinnati Reds’ 3-21 Start is among the Worst in Major League Baseball History

The Cincinnati Reds’ 3-21 start to the 2022 Major League Baseball season is on pace to be one of the worst in franchise history.

The Reds’ 18-4 loss to the Brewers in Milwaukee on Wednesday gave them their poorest 24-game start in franchise history, as well as the worst 24-game start in MLB since the Detroit Tigers went 3-21 in 2003.

Tellez’s slam was called off. In the third inning, Vladimir Gutierrez gave the Brewers a 6-2 lead. To begin the inning, Willy Adames was hit by a pitch, Christian Yelich was walked on four pitches, and Andrew McCutchen singled to load the bases. Tellez next smacked a 1-0 ball to centre field for his sixth home run of the season and third grand slam of his career.

Tellez added a two-run homer off reliever Dauri Moreta in the sixth inning and a bases-loaded double to cap a five-run eighth inning. The eight RBIs set a franchise record for the Brewers. Since starting the season 2-2, the Reds have lost 19 of their last 20 games, including eight in a row, and are off to their worst start in team history (3-21).

The only other Modern Era team to start the season with three victories after 24 games is the 2003 Tigers. (Because their eighth game of the season ended in a draw, the 1907 Brooklyn Superbas fell to 3-20-1 in their 24th game)

St. Louis defeated Kansas City to win the first game of a three-game interleague series between the Missouri rivals. Nolan Arenado had his 10th career game with at least five RBIs.

St. Louis won two of the three games after Arenado hit a three-run home run three batters into the game and added a two-run single in the seventh. The Royals had been shut out three times in their previous five games.

Over seven scoreless innings, Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright (3-3) allowed only one hit — a single by Michael A. Taylor in the third inning — with two strikeouts and one walk.
