True but that was when the Reds offense wasn't in a funk. In the majority of the games played this month the Reds have used 1 or 2 innings to score their runs off homeruns. I just think they are playing with fire and the teams that they have left have major talent (Braun, Fielder, Hart, Weeks, and Co.)
