Well, that was just ugly.

That would have been a great win for the Reds. The Reds entered the break on a bit of a hot streak, and to open the second half with a big win against the hottest team in the majors would have been huge.

Can the guys regroup tonight?

    How did Johnny let anyone down? He is a young kid going against a hot team, yes our closer needs to refund the team some money, but I have no issues with Johnny C and his performance this night or the entire season.

    Last nights pitching left a little to be desired, but at least the bats lit up. And can we please give Valentin some props. I have not been a Valentin fan at all, but that was a huge pressure situation where he came up with a great at bat to get the reds back in the game. I think thats the second clutch at bat he has had this season. Not bad for someone that barely ever sees the field.
