    The Reds must have had a tie game called because of rain after five or more innings.

    Without making excuse 2 things made me feel better about him starting as time went by.

    1) The Rockies bumping Del la Rosa up.

    2) It let Latos pitch vs STL.

    But yes, I am an idiot.

    That's the only thing I can think of too. I didn't think they counted those games in the stats if they have to replay it.

    They wouldn't completely replay the game would they? Wouldn't they simply continue the game from when it stopped? And that wouldn't count as 2 games would it?

    Maybe it's something obvious I'm missing, but I can't seem to wrap my head around that one.

    My favorite cycle story:

    In the '90's, Chris Sabo had a double, triple and homer going into his last AB in the 9th. He hit a solid single to center, but saw that the CF was lazy to the ball, so he took off for second and got a double instead. The Reds were winning in a blowout.

    When was the last time you saw someone miss the cycle by a single?

    They do. However, the Reds as a team played 163 games that year, so that may not be it.

    Edit: I'm wrong. They only had 162 decisions, so that must be it.

    Good job Big Klu!

    Exactly.....the Reds had a tie game on Sept 11 against ATL, then replayed the entire game the next day as part of a D/H. Stats are counted in tie games.

    They swept the D/H.

    Wow. I had no idea they counted the stats as 2 games. Learn something new every day.
