2013 Reds / Game Thread

Game Thread: Reds at Cardinals (2013.04.30)

The Reds and Cardinals close out the month of April with a “friendly” match-up.  The winner will be ahead of the other one in the standings to close out 2013’s first month of play.  The Reds are hot on a 2-game road winning streak thanks to some outstanding starting pitching.  Bronson Arroyo will look to continue that run of good starting pitching while the offense looks to continue scoring some runs against the WLBs.

That won’t be an easy task as the Reds face Jaime Garcia tonight.  Garcia is only 8-2 with a 3.39 ERA against the Reds in his career.  That just means the Reds are due, right?

Discuss the game here and let’s kick some WLB butt.  Go Reds!

  1. 15 runs in the last 8 games. Day game tomorrow so expect Caesar in the 2 hole and a heavy dose of Corky, Hannahan and Lutz. How bout not going to games until the toothpick and the hitting coach are canned. Some kind of boycott needs to happen. This is friggin pathetic.

    • @EastCoastVibes: There is a lot to say for that. Hasn’t been this year so far but in years past I hated going to Sunday games. Dusty rested the whole dang team! Last I checked Sundays are part of the weekend and should be a good day to draw fans. But seriously, I don’t want to spend money to see the “B” team.

  2. Tomorrows a day game, so hell the bat boy might be in the lineup. I’ll be back rooting my Reds on nonetheless. Reds can still win the series you know. Strike Out, Strike Out and Strike Out to end the game and give the Cardinals the win. I hope this isn’t going to be one of those seasons where when the bats wake up, the pitching goes south, and like now the pitching is good but the lumber is in slumber. Well, back at em tomorrow and a win for the Reds. Go Reds!! Adios Amigos.

  3. Player A: .241 avg, 2 HR, 3 2B, 27 so.

    Player B: .252 avg, 1 HR, 7 2B, 38 so.

    Who do you like?

  4. Just watched the game on MLB network. Votto should have let that last pitch go, he would have walked. Reds could not get the hit to bring in extra run when they needed it. I knew 1-0 was not going to hold up. That is why the Reds need a big bat that can do like Holiday and get the HR when needed. I don’t know how long this Jacoby has been the Reds hitting coach, but same old same old story all the time, bad plate discipline and lack of timely hitting. Somehow, he is not getting through to the hitters. Either find a new hitting coach, or if you keep the coach, then you got to start thinking about some kind of trade to get a reliable bat in the lineup. Cozart, Bruce, Heisey, and Hanigan are going to do same exact thing. Braves made changes and look what they are doing? I know we have a long season ahead of us, but I have seen the same exact thing on Reds Hitting for 3 years now. Its not fair to ask the pitchers to constantly shut out the other team with 1-0 or 2-1 leads……..

  5. Garcia’s a good pitcher but tonight was a bunch of dirt farming. Just kept digging the pitches in the dirt.
