Let’s recap today’s titanic struggle….
New York (NL) 3
W: M. Batista (5-2)
L: E. Volquez (5-7)
–Two hits and a disappointing, frustrating, maddening season has come to a close. Really, getting shut out on two hits by the immortal Miguel Batista is probably an appropriate way to cap this season.
–The Reds finished with a record of 79-83 one year after finishing 91-71.
–So…when do pitchers and catchers report?
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
