    Logan does a nice job. Only one run scores on a sac fly; the other two are stranded.

    ERA finishes at 2.24. He threw 103 pitches in 5 complete. Just not "on" at all. When it rains it pours.

    Cueto didn't seem comfortable all night. Pitched very slowly, pacing around, seemed to be sweating quite a bit. Not sure if it's the heat or some minor hurt or whatever. Was wild high.

    Nice outing by Ondrusek with the bases loaded so only one run scored.

    This game has reinforced my desire, posted earlier, to get some minor league players a look with the Reds just to change things up.

    Also he hit a few batters so I imagine the wildness wasn't hard to notice.
    I was concerned that Johnny was due for a not-so-sharp outing, but didn't want to say anything because he has been so good this year and is always our best chance.

    The Reds look deader tonight than the game thread. Down 5-0 through their half of the 7th...they could still come back to win this one but I'm starting to entertain the notion that the injuries etc have finally been too much to overcome and their season is done.

    Tip my hat to Ondrusek....that was outstanding. He saved Cueto 2 runs to his ERA in my opinion

    Hoover in. At least it's not a tie. Watch him be lights out now.

    I remember this winter when some Reds fans said what a terrible move Peralta was for the Cards. Not bad having a .799 OPS shortstop who fields his position.

    JJ Hoover in.....this is where I'd pitch him the rest of the year.....down by 3+ or up by 5+

    Peralta was a brilliant move for the Cards and it was the day they did it. Reds fans said the Carpenter deal was a terrible move too. Not so much.

    On the bright side of things, Hoover can't lose this one.

    Lots of years left to see how "brilliant" these moves are. And anyone can sign a cheater to a long term deal. Most other teams have too much integrity to do so.
