  1. Hamilton has made a great catch, has only hit, driven in the only run ….. he needs to get a steal here and score on an errant throw.

  2. How awesome is it gonna be to win this thing with only 2 hits? Time for luck to change around this place !

  3. Chapman is on tonight, both with his fastball and slider. Only thrown 12 pitches. Use him in the 10th if needed. Hopefully the Reds end it now.

  4. Good that Chapman’s pitching a 2nd inning, with the heart of their order coming up. Go for the win tonight, forget about tomorrow.

  5. I didn’t like Frazer playing the no doubles defense against Johnson. What’s the chance he’s going to hit a line drive down the 3rd base line ? Instead a ground ball which would have been an out goes thru for a single, and Johnson steals 2nd anyway.

  6. I sure hope I haven’t missed part of the Simpsons marathon only to see my Reds lose in extra innings. C’mon Reds lets get a win tonight. Go Reds!

  7. Bruce can at times look like a fan out of the stands that was asked to step in the batters box and try their hand at hitting major league pitching.

    • I did too. A home game, good guys in the bullpen rested, etc. Hamilton set them up for a win twice, but nothing doing.

    • Surprised with the proximity he didn’t call down about the 2nd inning give him plenty of time to get to the park

  8. The Reds avoided being no hit tonight, so there is that. Plus at least it took extra innings for for the Reds to lose the game. That’s about as best I can do in the glass half full, rose colored glasses department.

  9. Oh my my….It’s not that I believe these guys AREN’T trying, it just isn’t their year. Can’t wait until the roster expansion so we can see some other potentials. I’m still a believer in this team, with some tweaking. I can’t wait til 2015 so everyone can start all over again……healthy and with maybe a couple of improvements. I’m a looooong time Reds fan and will be with them next year too.

  10. Good news, the Braves @ Reds game will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1 aka FS1. Looking forward to the nation witnessing the Reds teach the Braves a lesson they won’t soon forgethiccup. Go Reds!
