Reds vs. Phillies


Recommended Posts

Today is the start of a 9 game homestand and the Phillies are in for the first 3.

The Reds have Cueto, Latos, and Leake going in the series.

It's to a point now where i'm no longer concerned with what the Cardinals and Pirates are doing, but more to whether we get homefield advantage.

Early start time today of 1:10 EST if the rain holds up.

Reds win 2-1 last night. Latos walks in a single run and then was good from there on out.

Bruce makes a highlight play in the corner of RF and then hits a 2 run shot as well.

Nice to see him playing well again.

On some side notes:

Last night pushed the Reds over the 2 million mark for the season, which is the fastest they have gotten there since GABP opened.

Andy Dalton and AJ Green were the battery throwing out the first pitch before the game last.

In regards to Votto, he will be playing today and answering most peoples prayers, Phillips will be the leadoff hitter.

For those following, today is an early start at 12:35 EST.

On another side note, I think it's interesting that Baker said he pulled Bruce to let him think things out a little bit before going on his current hitting display (homers in 3 straight games now) where before he has let players stay in the lineup and try to "hit their way out of the streak". Make of that what you will...

Well, forget the game today. Leake is pitching like a Single A guy.

More importantly, let's see how Votto looks. After the first inning, it doesn't seem like much has changed. Votto gets a hit and it counts for absolutely nothing, because the two guys in front of him can't get on. Here's hoping having Phillips in the lead spot changes that eventually...

These guys have some kind of mental block when it comes to the Phillies. Thank goodness they aren't making the playoffs.

Well I don't know what's happened to the team lately. They're just not clicking as they should heading into the playoffs.
