Before Tuesday's game against the Astros one Reds player was looking at the league's statistics and noted Jay Bruce had 95 RBI on the season.

"We've got to get him a C-note" Bruce's teammate said.

"Oh he'll get it" another responded.

Bruce who entered the game 0 for 8 in his career against Astros starter Jordan Lyles picked up that Franklin with a bloop and a blast off of Lyles in the Reds' 10-0 victory over the Astros at Minute Maid Park.

It also marked another century mark as the Astros lost their 100th game of the season falling to 51-100. It's the Astros' third straight 100-loss season.

With two on in the first Bruce hit a bloop single to left field just past shortstop Jonathan Villar. Even though Brandon Phillips had to hold at third to make sure he could tag if it was caught he scored easily.

The Reds then added two more that inning to lead 4-0 in the first one on a single by Todd Frazier and two more on Zack Cozart's single to right.

After crushing a ball to center field that would have had a chance to leave the park at Great American Ball Park but was caught at the base of Tal's Hill by Brandon Barnes Bruce came up again with the bases loaded in the fourth.

Bruce hit the first pitch he saw from Lyles into the seats in left field for his 30th home run of the season and second career grand slam. Those four RBI plus the one in the first gave him his 100 RBI for the season a new career high.

"One hundred RBI and 30 home runs all in one swoop" Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "It was great for him to do it with his parents here and all his homeboys because he's from right down the road. That's a good night but we've got work to do."

With Bruce moving over the 100 RBI mark the Reds now have two players with 100 or more RBI for the first time since 1977 when George Foster (149) and Johnny Bench (109) achieved the feat. Phillips entered the game second in the National League in RBI (101) behind Arizona's Paul Goldschmidt. Bruce became just the third National League player to reach the 100 RBI mark.
