    The Reds did struggle to make contact, as noted in the article, which gave less opportunity for the events to play out. Susceptible to bad luck ruining the day with few opportunities. Too bad, they certainly deserved better.

    Short series you can get anomalies like that.

    No excuse for poor performance, just an interesting way to look from a more global view. Timely contact was the Reds problem all year and was exposed big time in game one.

    Basically, they might’ve been unlucky on the balls they did put in play, but the fact that they put so few balls in play to begin with was the whole problem.

    That one string of PAs where Farmer and Galvis struck out in pretty pathetic fashion with RISP was kind of a microcosm of those 2 games.

    Barnhart, Farmer, and Galvis. It is still haunting my dreams.

    I'll go a step further and say that the fact that it was Farmer and Galvis we were hoping to get the runs in was the real problem. Galvis can't hit against LHP (and barely against RHP), yet he was the choice to hit there.

    This is completely true, but in two games, an extra couple of hits could have made all of the difference in getting one win. Maybe those hits happened prior to the times we got people on base, and we win the first game 2-0? The issue was both facets, bad luck and horrendous situational hitting. We always knew the second issue existed, it was just really visually enhanced with the outlier stuff that we cant seem to get away from.

    I think that is wrong. The Braves won the first game on a hit with RISP.

    And Votto didn’t score on one.
