You Really Like My Mesh Pullover? Nationals 3-1

The Reds wrapped things up in Washington last night with a very forgettable performance. Arroyo wasn't all that bad, but not all that great either. He gave up 3 over 6. Two of the 3 came on a bases loaded single by everyone's favorite derelict impersonator, Jonny Gomes. Gomes also made a pretty nice catch to rob Votto. I'll remember that Jonny. Ryan Hanigan will at least remember yesterday's game, he had 4 hits in 4 at bats and threw a runner out who was attempting to steal. Nice job Ryan - way to not phone it in.

Reds soldier on to Pittsburgh to help the Pirates wind down their season. Both teams have a bet to see which of their fan bases care less about them at this point in the season. I suspect people in Pittsburgh, contrasted with Cincinnati, have little interest in the fading Pirates but this is new territory for a lot of them. Only a few games under .500 this late in the season? This has to be something near a success. Anyway, the Reds will rip that feeling of accomplishment right out of them with a savage and total beating of them all weekend long. Sorry Pittsburgh.
