Fire Dusty! #bunts
Only 3 games out and 1.5 behind the Cards. Two big series this weekend. Reds-Dodgers and Pirates-Cards
Even though Pirates lead division, I'm rooting for them to win the series against the Cards this weekend in St. Louis.
Pirates have a tougher schedule, play in Texas and six with Reds.
Cards have easiest schedule after this weekend. Need them to lose some games to Bucs.
great and much needed series win...
our pitching is pretty good
Big win. Team could have folded after last night but they didn't. Kudos. I shall sleep better tonight.
This post is BABIP-lucky.

Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.
I sure hope Phillips is OK to play against the Dodgers.

The Reds pitching staff completely dominated this series. Even in the loss they basically pitched the equivalent of two quality starts. Other than Matt Adams' extra inning heroics, this was four days of WS-caliber pitching.
