The red-hot Cincinnati Reds have won ten games in a row…all without Joey Votto. Insane, right? Well, when was the last time the Reds won eleven straight games?
Yep, a win today would put the Reds into territory that hasn’t been charted by a Reds team for fifty-five years. The Big Red Machine never did it. The Wire-to-Wire Reds didn’t do it. The “No Clever Nickname” 2012 Reds have a chance to explore that territory today.
So everyone is excited tonight, right? Well, add this to the mix: the Reds are returning home for their first game tonight after an undefeated road trip. Even better: Mike Leake will face former Red Edinson Volquez.
Lots of storylines tonight. Don’t you love it?
