Rough win but a win is a win.

Now back to you regularly scheduled celebrating!

Lets hope Chapman gets people out of their homes and to the ballpark so more people can enjoy this!

What an exciting time to be a fan of this team! I'm absolutely loving it! Today was funny because the crowd was so small the vendors had time to stand and watch the game. Fun to see coworkers waving their arms and cheering like crazy. GO REDS!

What a phenomenal end to the game.

And, the bullpen was, well, kinda nasty boyish.

At least, Massett is right now. He's just flat nasty. Can't wait to add Chapman to that end of game arsenal tomorrow.

Stayed true as a Reds fan, wearing the gear while people told him he needed to root for a MLB team, all that. Now he can strut. I've been around for a lot of division winning years and three World Series wins, so it's his turn.

Same here. My drive to Cinci is about 2.5 hours, so I can't go on a weeknight...but the number of people in the Cinci metro area not going to these games really ticks me off.

I was amazed. Walking up at the normal time for me (6:15) you would have had no idea there was a game going on until you got within like 100 yards of the stadium. Of course I get there earlier than the average fan, but it was still waaaaay below the normal level of foot-traffic that the riverfront gets from fans going to the game. It's just a shame that no one came out because tonight really was a thrilling contest.

Proud to be one of the ~10k or so left at the end of this one. Fun night at the ballpark. It's nice to have a team good enough to win on a night when they don't play their best baseball.

Homer gutted through a so-so outing to make 6IP, 4ER -- not great, but it got the ball to the hammers (Ondrusek, Masset, Cordero) with the game in reach. Bray was nails to Fielder. And what else can you say about Jay Bruce? It's like the kid woke up on August 1st and had a Kenny Powers moment -- "I'm Jay bleeping Bruce!"

Fun night. Great team. Ugly win? No way -- every win is beautiful when you're up 6 with a month to play.

Like Blue's famous quote from an old minor league game thread when Jay was on fire, "You'd hit a home run too every other AB if you're middle name was [Bleep]ing"

The Bleep is one letter but I was told I had to remove it from my status after a few years of it being there so I won't post the exact thing here.

I was away from the computer late last night so I wasn't in the thread after the 9th...so I missed this. Following on my cell phone, and then quickly turning on MLB Network. :O)

BRRRRRRUUUUUUUUUCE! He's been so much better lately it's like night and day.

I'm not sure who was watching MLB Network, but right after the game, they switched crews to add Lark & Casey and they were both gushing over the Redlegs. But Barry said something about Bruce that I found interesting. He said he was talking to Jay and that Jay mentioned that the Reds were considering using him in a platoon in right (when he was struggling in the second half). Lark told him to step it up. Boy has he ever. Jay turns it on when he's risking losing his job. Stubbs does the same. It's kinda nice to light a fire under these kids and see them respond they way they have (of course it would be nice if we didn't have to light the fire to begin with...but they ARE kids after all).
