Don't like our chances, but they made their bed, now it is time to produce.

GO REDS!!!

Play hard and play smart. That's all we can ask. Nobody needs to be a hero. Just everyone do their jobs.

I didn't want to see this go to five games, but we're playing in our ballpark with our best pitcher (currently) and with a 9:30am pacific time start. Our bullpen is rested and ready; and our lineup showed, five days ago, that they can hit Mat Cain.

Time to roll the dice.

Latos is definitely leaving a lot of pitches up

BigRedVA
10-11-2012, 01:15 PM
nice ... first pitch pop out. Go Reds!

RedsBrick
10-11-2012, 01:15 PM
Alright! Now get some runs

texasdave

Yes! Now a half a dozen runs will do nicely. Yes. I am greedy today.

10-11-2012, 01:16 PM
Great recovery. Definitely needs to keep his pitches down though... we've got our best D in today, he needs to trust them.

10-11-2012, 01:17 PM
Great job Latos! I was freakin' nervous!

CaliBuck
10-11-2012, 01:18 PM
As someone mentioned in the other Game Thread, hopefully leaving the pitches up is just due to adrenaline and they'll go down as he relaxes.

1940757690
10-11-2012, 01:18 PM
Great job Latos! I was freakin' nervous!

Wasn't a great job. But it was a more than freakin' good enough job. He'll settle down and just get better. Lawn mower. Here we go.

LexRedsFan
10-11-2012, 01:18 PM
6-7-8 next inning and he only threw 13 pitches.

About as good of a "scuffle" inning as you'll see.

Yes! Rally time.

WAAAAY too soon to say that. Unless you mean the offense I expected? In which case, look to the early and middle innings for us to take the first lead.

Mutaman
10-11-2012, 01:29 PM
Miserable at bat by Ludwick and Bruce just got outclassed.

CaliBuck

reds700
10-11-2012, 01:30 PM
Why would anyone every throw Ludwick a strike. Just throw him sliders away and in the dirt and you strike him out every time.

Biff Pocoroba
10-11-2012, 01:30 PM
Stinks....but they did(n't) do the same thing. We're tied one to one in missed chances.

Mutaman
10-11-2012, 01:31 PM
WE heard all year how Cozart wasn't a table setter. Well now he is and nobody can drive him in.

RedsBrick

Same thing happened Game 3 and 4

Gotta swing at pitches in the zone....both Luddy and Bruce should have walked but swung at pitches out of the zone

Also unnverves the gigantes. There we go! E-panda! Thank you!

Biff Pocoroba

Didn't Latos pitched a gem against the Pirates and hit a two-run dinger? And this was back when a series against the Pirates meant something.

You didn't list keeping bat on shoulder

10-11-2012, 01:45 PM
Said it in April, will say it in October: not enough left handed bats in this lineup.

Stubbs is a versatile batsman to be sure.

1940757690
10-11-2012, 01:45 PM
OK. That's what Drew does so no shock there.

I'm going to stay focused on Latos and feel good about what he's doing until he either isn't doing it anymore (seems less likely) or until this starts feeling like Homer's outing.

More likely, we will take a first lead here shortly. Raising a toast to that.

:beerme:

Reds are weak mentally, not offensively.

Actually think there's something to that but can't assess this game yet--at least for me. Not with our pitching getting the job done and four baserunners so far. The bats will do this for Latos...and for Homer...and for themselves...and us.

texasdave
10-11-2012, 01:46 PM

The umpiring doesn't bother me so much. Seems like they miss them for both teams.

Well pitching and defense has got us this far, maybe it can get us over the hump.

texasdave
10-11-2012, 01:49 PM
Drives me crazy. I don't remember the pitch calls ever being this bad.


I remember a time when the Braves pitchers used to get a little extra on the outside corner than other team's pitchers. So if an ump misses them for both sides that is cool by me.

CaliBuck
10-11-2012, 01:49 PM
As long as the strikezone is consistent both ways, I'm fine with it. Doesn't matter if it's benefiting hitters or pitchers.

RedsBrick
10-11-2012, 01:50 PM

A lot of times he catches the ball with two hands. How 1960's of him.

1940757690

"Latos definitely pitching angry"

Love that line. So long as he isn't pitching stupid. And, so far, he is not.

Latos probably needs a shutout performance for the Reds to have a chance.

That's been the story all year. Our pitchers have had to be near perfect because our offense has been poor. It puts a lot of pressure on your pitchers.

Latos is averaging just over 10 pitches per inning in the first three.

We're good from the mound. Bats now please.

Haven't had any complaints about Latos down the stretch or in the post season. He just might be a gamer.
