Six Runs Are Apparently Inadequate Advantage to Record Three Outs, Braves 10-9
It's too bad, because the offense looked real good for one inning. Lighting up Tommy Hanson for 8 in the 2nd. Votto had the big one with a bomb to left center with the bases full on a 3-1 grooved fastball. But, there were other problems leading up to the 9th inning implosion. The Reds committed two errors, one by Leake who otherwise probably deserved win number 5, and then two more in the 9th with a third possibly deserved when Cabrera couldn't come up with a potential double play ball. Hopefully, the Reds got all of the awful play out of their system today, so we can go back to seeing the team we have learned to love in the upcoming series with the cure-all for poor play, the Indians. With the loss, the Reds fell out of first place for the first time in four days. Tough break guys, I guess you just can't have a team-wide loss of all ability, even if it's only for one inning against the Savages. I hope you all learned something today.
