Heath Hembree (2-5) took the loss Monday against the Cubs, allowing one run on two walks. He struck out one.
Hembree entered in a tie game in the eighth and recorded the last out. In the ninth, he loaded the bases before ceding to Amir Garrett, who allowed the walk-off hit. Hembree has been somewhat emerging as the favorite closer in Cincinnati, but it's seeming to be a situation to stay far away from. He is 8-for-9 in save chances this season.
