    game over -- 1-0 - my favorite type game!
    The older I get - the better I was

    and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)

    Happy that Latos got the dub.

    Good thing they didn't wash this game out then, eh?

    Stars of the game:

    1) Latos
    2) Cozart
    3) Broxton/Frazier

    Agreed. He doesn't need to top 100 to be effective. He has to throw strikes and mix in his slider to be effective. Oddly enough, that formula will work as a starter as well.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Had it all the way. That's two 1-0 wins on the homestand. And Latos gets no support again, but comes away with the win.

    Broxton got the biggest outs of the day though. I guess that bad outing was a fluke


    And while I really wanted to see Chapman as a starter this year, a game like this makes me glad we had him to come out and finish it off.
    Can't win with 'em

    Can't win without 'em

    My favorite kind of win:

    Reds went 5-2 on the homestand, but that won't be good enough for some.

    Got to hand it the Cubs starters in this series. They pitched well.
