Reds Continue Vacation From Winning, Rockies 4-3

Everyone needs a little break now and then. The Padres took an extended stay at the loser hotel, dropping 10 straight. The Reds thought it looked so nice that they'd give it a try. So, that's 3 straight and 4 out of 5 but at least the Cardinals can't beat the Brewers. At least the Rockies are still in the playoff chase, so there.

Cueto had a tough first three batters, then cooled out and settled into a nice little groove. His only other blemish was due to an E4, which doesn't happen very often and, in fact hadn't happened in 63 games. But that fourth run turned out to be the decider. The Stubbs and Gomes show just didn't have enough to get it done. The lesson the Reds pitchers should take from these first two games is don't pitch to Carlos Gonzalez. That guy can flat out rake. Make Seth Smith and Todd Helton beat you because they won't. So, that is how the team with proceed today with more positive results. Magic number of 20, I think I will add a ticker to the site. If, I'm not too busy.
