    Vegas called. Said never bet against a streak.

    Valverde starts Bruce off with back to back fastballs at 97 mph, both for strikes. He then finishes him off with a nasty splitter at 88 mph to get Bruce swinging.

    Votto still at first with Edwin now up. 1 out.

    Valverde Ks EE looking with a 98 mph fastball on the black, inside.

    2 down with, sigh, Patterson now up.

    Patterson strikes out swinging to end the game. Astros win 4-1. Oswalt improves to about 360,000,000,000-1 against the Reds.

    On the bright side, I don't think anybody even cares anymore.

    Has there been a worse Reds team offensively?

    Close.

    The 1982 team scored 545 runs - avg. - .3.36 rpg
    The 2008 team scored 556 runs - avg. - 4.21 rpg (in 132 games)

    The 1982 team had 1375 hits - avg - 8.48 hpg
    The 2008 team has 1087 hits - avg - 8.23 hpg

    One has to consider that a lot of the 2008 statistics included Adam Dunn and Ken Griffey, Jr. It is notable that the 1982 team hit .251 while this year's team is in at .244.

    Regardless, both are pitiful and what was a great pitching performance (despite the incompetence of Majewski) where the staff only allowed 4 runs, the horrible offensive team that this team is was defeated after the first home run.
