CHICAGO -- Devin Mesoraco took a beating on Monday. He took a foul tip off the mask, was hit by a backswing, and was twice plunked by a pitch.
It was worth it.
With the bases loaded and two outs in the ninth, Mesoraco cranked a Hector Rondon pitch into the basket in left-center for his third career grand slam, lifting the Reds to a 6-1 victory at Wrigley Field. Mesoraco has now homered in four straight games, becoming the first Reds player to do so since Jay Bruce from June 19-22, 2013.
