    So by math ELDC is already a 2WAR player

    2 games = 2 wins

    .429 with 2 walks, HR, Triple and Double.

    Definitely lose both games without him.

    Elly De La Cruz learning what his strike zone is, and what Clayton Kershaw's strike zone is:

    (Pitches 2 & 3 were called strikes)

    That at bat was a joke due to the umpiring.

    I'm hoping he gets those strikeouts down. 6 in 11 AB's.

    As Tyler Stephenson batted and looked at an 0-1 curveball, De La Cruz bolted for second base and took it easily with a headfirst slide ahead of catcher Austin Barnes' off-target throw.

    That made De La Cruz the second player in Major League history to collect a home run, a triple, a double, a single and a stolen base in his first three games.

    The only other time that was achieved was in 1953 by Bill Bruton of the Milwaukee Braves.

    “What can I say? You just put all of your work in and try to see if it works out," De La Cruz said of his first series. "You just come out the next day and try to improve from the previous day.”

    The Reds still got their third series win in their last four.

    There was a noticeable increase in electricity in the atmosphere from fans at Great American Ball Park. While De La Cruz is partly responsible, there were also two big comebacks for walk-off wins in the first two games against Los Angeles.

    "That is something we notice and appreciate," Bell said. "It’s something we can use to our advantage. Everyone loves being a part of an energetic experience."

    Now the Reds will try to carry their momentum through a 10-day, nine-game road trip through St. Louis, Kansas City and Houston.

    I used to love that game, not anymore. They've stripped out a bunch of the league stuff, and focused more on the micro-transaction stuff for profit. They claimed stuff was stripped for legal reasons. The game has gone downhill, and they didn't really put much effort into the 3D stuff, either.

    Wasn't that his pattern when he first reached every new level? If the pattern holds, I think we'll end up happy.
