CINCINNATI — Homering for the first time as a member of the Cincinnati Reds, former Chicago Cubs outfielder Nicholas Castellanos tied the Cubs at two runs apiece with a two-run jack on Tuesday. Castellanos took Alec Mills deep in the bottom of the fourth.

Castellanos, who was traded from the Detroit Tigers to the Cubs at last year's trade deadline, signed with the Reds in the offseason. Tuesday's dinger at Great American Ball Park was an opposite-field homer to right that traveled 380 feet on a sinker from Mills. Jesse Winker scored a result of the dinger.
