And this one belongs to the Reds! Player of the game....no, NOT Jay Bruce. Bronson. Period.
Cuddyer strikes out swinging on another 100 MPH pitch, and this one belongs to the Reds!
Wow. That last one was "easy" 100 mph gas. Effortless.
Rounding third and heading for home...
100 MPH again strikes out Cuddyer. Reds win 3-0!! Combined 4 hit shutout.
I welcome criticism of the Reds, but to read this thread you'd think the Reds just lost ten in a row. Reds with three shutouts in four games.
Clearly the coaching staff can't win
(Referring to Jack Hannahan signing with a Korean team)
Since there are no teams on the moon, I guess South Korea's far enough from Cincinnati to satisfy me.
Oh well, I'm gonna forget about all that and enjoy this victory. This team flat-out has World Series champion potential. No question about it.
Congratulations to Jay Bruce, who has tied Joey Votto for 17th place on the Reds' all-time home run list!

Lovely win by the Reds....on a night when Choo and Votto were horrible.

To win 3 of 4 with Votto going 2-16 and Choo 2-15 plus losing your top RBI man and wizard in the field. I am a litte concerned. Maybe Welsh is right-- they're tired.
