Reds’ manager pauses argument with umpires for “God Bless America” in win over Mets


Reds manager Bryan Price put his argument with umpires on pause for the singing of “God Bless America,” then Cincinnati surged past the New York Mets 10-5 Sunday on Tucker Barnhart’s career-high five RBIs.

The Reds rallied for three runs in the seventh to make it 3-all. Scooter Gennett was called out on strikes by plate umpire Shane Livensparger to end the inning, and Price came out to argue.

Price was contesting the call with Livensparger and crew chief Jerry Layne when New York firefighter Makiah Brown walked on the field for her rendition of “God Bless America.”

Price and the two umpires took off their hats for the performance, then resumed the argument when Brown finished.

The Reds ended a three-game losing streak.
