Look at the Box Score this a.m., that game was even uglier than I thought. Ten K's for Reds' batters (and how we did that with that teensy strike zone, I can't say). The left side of the infield left ten runners on while batting; Dunn, Kearns, and Valentin left 9 more themselves - in all, 22 runners left on.
Alas, a new day dawns, we can hope that this was the ugly game for the year and bright days await us.
And we still scored 7 runs. This offense is going to be fun to watch all year!
Why would you get a ticket voucher for a loss? ... Actually, there might be some very interesting marketing possibilities in that. After any Reds home loss, you get a buy one get one free voucher for another game. Would be an interesting way to try and get folks back in the park and make sure they went home happy regardless.
