Re: ST: Reds vs. Cubs Mon. 3/12
Let's head into the 7th. Reds batting and looking for their first hit since one out in the third when Cozart doubled in a deuce.
Cubs closer Marmol will be pitching for Chicago.
Janish draws a walk. (He will outplay Valdez and still be sent down)
Ludwick doubles to the gap. They hold Janish at third. 1st and 3rd. Nobody out. Phipps, Corky and Lutz due up.
Marmol sets Phipps down on a high hard one. (Ks don't matter. Ks don't matter.)
Corky is clipped by a pitch, possibly his mustache, to load them up.
Woohoo! Lutz with a broken-bat flair to score a couple. 5-4 Reds. Good things can happen if you just put the ball in play. Nothing happens on a strikeout.
Valaika walks to reload the bases. Just Marmol being Marmol.
Gregorius sac fly plates Corky. Put the ball into play. Score. Funny how that works. 6-4 Reds.
Dorns skies to left.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
