    Game 4 or 5.

    He hasn't thrown that many pitches his last 2 appearances...don't know how much that plays into things.

    Right now if Cueto is able to make a start in Cincinnati you would have Latos scheduled to go game 5 if the series went that long.

    I think the Cueto injury was the baseball gods correcting an error that Dusty made to not have Latos scheduled to pitch in that park. So, Homer better be ready tomorrow

    Yeah I agree. When you are happy a player is OK, you generally stand up and applaud mildly like a golf clap. They were cheering like they'd just got a TKO. It felt a lot more like a celebration.

    Amazing win. I've waited a long time for this day. Hopefully this is the first of many more playoff wins for the Reds.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    What a freaaaaking night.... I'm down in Cincinnati for the Eric Church concert and got a text shortly after the game started (Hadn't even looked at the box score yet) saying something about LeCure and I just stood there, stage side in awe and puzzled.... Waiting for my phone to get service and saw Cueto was out after 8 pitches.... My jaw just dropped, heart skipped.....

    Checked back a little while later and saw Latos manned up and took the ball on 3 days rest and we got just enough big hits to over come everything.... I was able to listen to the last 3 innings while driving back to Columbus....

    Feels good to be a Reds fan... I believe in this team... I wouldn't be shocked if they came back to Cincinnati up 2-0...

    Lets git-er-done!

    I doubt you see Latos before game 5.

    Re: NLDS Game 1 - Reds at Giants 10/6/12

    In Chicago for the weekend. Went to dinner last night with our daughter and got to meet her boyfriend for the first time. Had dinner at a bar with a light crowd and the Reds game on. We stayed there until nearly 10 and walked up the street to a bar to finish watching the game. First place we went was jammed with the game on one TV, but no seats near it. Walking out, I paused and said I wanted to watch the Reds get a double play. Bang, line out to Joey, step on the bag and out the door walking down to another place.

    Watched through the 1st half of the 7th at a third bar and then headed back to our daughter's apartment. Got the laptop fired up and listened to the end of the game on WLW's feed (turns out she doesn't have cable after all).

    And the boyfriend's a baseball fan too (actually sports fan). He actually got to throw out a first pitch at Target Field and we yacked some baseball. Seems like a good guy and she seems happy with him. Looking forward to good Bronson being there tonight and hoping for a second victory.

    Most dazzling play of the night, of those I saw, was Brandon's backing up Joey on the errant throw to first. I've seen a lot of his highlights, but that one was definitely a "how'd he do that?" play.

    If Cueto isn't quite ready yet the Reds don't want to eliminate him from the LCS, just who starts game 4?

    Just skimmed through this whole thread -- a lot more relaxing to relive it than live through it. What a rollercoaster. This might be my favorite post in the thread:

    A highly emotional game but an extraordinary one. I think this will do wonders for their confidence without making them cocky; this team is very strong on that. After Cueto was pulled I momentarily forgot that this team is tenacious, but luckily they didn't.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    You just named the word I've been searching for for this team - "tenacious."
