If you aren’t watching the closing holes of the British Open, tune in for the beginning of today’s titanic struggle with the Florida Marlins. Bronson Arroyo tries to even up the series, after a couple of disastrous nights of baseball.

Oh yeah, the Reds are back in last place and, once again, they have the worst record in the National League.

Enjoy….

  3. Keppinger hit a two-run homer in the first.

    The Reds have had scoring opportunities in both innings so far. In the first, they had 2nd and 3rd with one out but couldn’t get anyone else in. And they had first and third in the 2nd, but Freel got doubled off first on a line drive to third. Not a smart baserunning play.

    The lead-off batter for the Marlins, Hanley Ramirez, swung at a 0-1 curveball by Bronson, and it looked like he hyper-extended his shoulder and left.

  4. Olivo was standing in the basepath before the ball got there. Ross should not have tried to go around him but instead should have just knocked him out of the way.

  5. This is becoming too depressing to watch

  6. Could be worse. The Devil Rays just lost their last two games by a combined 38-9.

  7. While the reds lost thier last 3 games by a combined score of 30-6. Pretty darn close to being just as bad.

  8. I’d say worse, because in the end, the standings show the Rays with 2 more losses and Reds with 3.
