Reds Bide Time, Wait Until Extras To Stop Being Terrible, Reds 6-4
Leake matched Gonzalez for 6, allowing just a lone run but again didn't factor in the victory. Masset was solid, as was Rhodes but Coco blew his fourth save of the season when he offered Kouzmanoff the opportunity to be, for the time being the hero. He, Coco, even came out for the 10th but walked the first two he saw, leaving things up to Jordan Smith. Smith penalized Cordero by allowing one of the inherited runners to score but locked things down picking up his first big league statistical category, in the form of a save. Now when you look on the list of all time save leaders, he only has about 600 to go to catch Hoffman. The Reds Rocket thinks he has the potential. Keep up the good work kid.
So, the Reds, hopefully, have forgotten how poorly they played in Seattle and will take things up with Dallas Braden tomorrow. Has anyone heard that he's from Stockton, California? Ask him about his tattoo, he'd be happy to share with you. Reds! Reds! Reds!
