Cards looking to close out KC....6-3, bot 9
Final: Cards 6 - KC 3. Reds remain 1.5 games behind, but gain on Pirates who lost.
It's a ways off but, it appears the Reds are going to miss Wainwright when the Cardinals roll into town in a few weeks. The current rotation has Lyons and Wacha sandwiched around Lynn. This is a series the Reds really need to win, just stay within a game or two until then and make a move. Yes, it's still just June but I'm tired of looking at St. Louis on top of the standings. The Reds have an off-day prior to that series starting so I can't begin to ponder the good guys rotation.
This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.
Watching LA vs LA and it's a heavyweight slugfest. Good chance the Dodgers stop that 8 gm winning streak of the Halos. Matt Kemp has looked just awful at the plate and dropped a ball that was in his glove in CF.
Dioner Navarro and Ryan Zimmerman each hit three HR's in games yesterday. It's only the 14th time in MLB history that two different players hit three HR's on the same day. Johnny Bench and Willie Greene of the Reds have done this in the past. Most have happened since 1996.

Travis Wood just hit a grand slam. Cubs up 6-1 in the 4th.
KC has scored 3 in the 9th to lead the Cardinals 4-2, and are still batting. The George Brett magic?
The game has just been stopped because of rain in the top of 9th. Royals with bases loaded, no out, with 3 runs in. If this game is called because of rain, KC's 9th inning would be washed away, and the Cardinals would win the 8 inning game, 2-1. We'll see what happens.

Royals plate 3 in the top of the 9th so far against Cards and rain suspends the game with bases loaded, Royals up 4-2, no outs.
