Ground out to 3rd by Segura
Isn't this how the game went yesterday? Reds down 2-0 until the 6th or so then broke out.
"In our sundown perambulations of late, through the outer parts of Brooklyn, we have observed several parties of youngsters playing 'base', a certain game of ball. Let us go forth awhile, and get better air in our lungs. Let us leave our close rooms, the game of ball is glorious"
Braves pounding Lance Lynn...3-0 and still batting in the 2nd

Ramirez flies out to left. Reynolds has done a good job to keep the Reds in this game. 2-0 Brewers mid 5th
Reynolds has done his job today.
Reynolds gets his ERA below 7.00 for first time. Hopefully going lower still.
Phillips has dove twice today at balls that he had to know he couldn't get to. Yesterday (or perhaps it was Friday) there was a play where it looked like he could have had it if he dove. I'm wondering if there wasn't a bit of a discussion in the clubhouse about that...
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
Reds play the Dodgers again? Ugh. Wish they.had gotten them early on when they weren't on fire.
Pay attention to the open sky
Btw...did anybody bother to send the info down to the Reds clubhouse that it was Marco Estrada pitching today for the Brewers? I feel like all it'll take is for someone to TELL them...it's ESTRADA!!!
