Taking a look at the previous 4 games which have put this team in the "spotlight" by showcasing them to a national audience, the team is 0-4. The results of these 4 games are as follows:
1. Phillies 2, Reds 0 (0 hits)
2. Phillies 7, Reds 4 (no complaints)
3. Phillies 2, Reds 0 (5 hits)
4. Cardinals 3, Reds 0 (4 hits)
Its pretty easy to notice a trend, as 3 shutouts in 4 games is not good. The pitching is stepping it up for the most part, but the offense certainly has not. Hopefully this will come with experience, but to me this is the most concerning aspect of this team.
