"I was kind of just going based off what I'd seen on him in his past games," Muncy said of hitting against Wheeler. "When he gets a guy on first he likes to go with his changeup. Then I took a chance and it paid off for me. He left it up in the zone. If he'd have left it down in the zone I probably wouldn't have hit it but he made a mistake and that was probably one of the only mistakes he made all day."
Max Muncy scored from first and Reds manager Jim Riggleman argued unsuccessfully he should have been stopped at third, but the umpires' decision was upheld in a video review.
