Galvis and Barnhart haven’t done much damage but they’ve worked the pitchers tonight.

Despite the K that was a good AB by Tucker. Perfect pitch to get him.

I don't think we need to worry about the Phillies at this point, given the end with 3 at Tampa Bay.

I really hope the Marlins get one of the playoff spots - not at our expense, of course.

What a story. They have a payroll of approximately 78,000.00, Covid absolutely wrecked their team in the beginning, causing them to have to take a bunch of no-names just to field a team.

Would be crazy. But it may well happen:

Brewers do have an impressive bullpen. Off the top of my head I canít think of a better one.

Based on ERA, they are 11th in MLB.

Bauer's probably got some metric to show that ice isn't effective, he's slathering his arm in lard or something.

And he's probably right.

It will take a lot of money but he may not be the type of player who has to make the most. If he likes the team and thinks he can win a World Series the Reds may not have to be the highest bidder. May not work out that way and maybe I’m fooling myself because I want him back too.

Barney kept interrupting Andy while he tried to court the local nurse lady, played by Sue Ane Langdon who I had never heard of but man, what a hottie.

They were up 3-0 when I got home and by the time I changed into PJ’s and got out to the living room it was 6-1.

This is reminiscent of the best I ever saw from Jose Rijo in big spots. Best pitching performance of my lifetime in a big spot was Rijo game 4 in 1990. Bailey a close second in 2012. But this, in a playoff race, is about as good as I can recall.

Hello NL Cy Young Award, it’s Cincinnati #Reds ace Trevor Bauer. Pitching on short rest, he vaults ahead of the NL pack, giving up just 4 hits with 1 run and striking out 12 in eight innings vs the #Brewers. Reds lead 6-1 in the 8th with Bauer likely done at 104 pitches.

This game reminds me of the final game of 1999 regular season, our ace Pete Harnisch pitched against Brewers in a must win game and our clean up hitter(Greg Vaughn) hit 3 run homer to open it up. Just substitute Trevor Bauer for PH and Geno for GV and it's very close. 7-1 was final in that game. Hopefully 6-1 will stand in this one.
