–Coming into tonight’s game, the Rockies had the worst record in baseball. They beat the Redlegs. Ugh.
–Alfredo Simon continued his slow decline back to mediocrity by allowing seven runs (five earned) on ten hits and a walk in five innings. Those unearned runs were his fault, however, as Simon made a little league-esque throw in trying to record an out at second base.
Not so random thoughts….
–Just when they started teasing us again, the Reds have lost three in a row, and five of their last six — all against teams with losing records. Ugh.
–I lied. There were a couple of positives. Ryan Ludwick singled, doubled, and homered (half of Cincinnati’s hits), and drove in a couple of runs. Zack Cozart went 2-3 with an RBI. JJ Hoover and Carlos Contreras pitched well in relief.
–Our old friend Drew Stubbs had a couple of hits for the Rockies.
–Johnny Cueto pitches tomorrow, so that seems like a good thing.
–The Redlegs dropped back below .500 after an uninspiring performance against the worst team in the league. Seems like an appropriate moment for the reappearance of Milton.
