After scoring 30 runs combined in games one and two of this series, runs may prove a little tougher to come by in today’s rubber match between the Reds and Nationals.  Johnny Cueto faces off against Stephen Strasburg in what should be an old fashioned pitchers duel.  One is a Cy Young Award frontrunner.  The other is Stephen Strasburg.

Can the Reds make it back-to-back series wins over two of the top competitors in Major League Baseball?  It may be a tough task but I think the good guys are up for it. Discuss the game here and… GO REDS!

  1. wow, very nice ………..

    pile on a few more runs here

  2. Marshall does not appear to be rusty. Understatement icon.

  3. Jeeze, Marshall’s pitches were absolutely nasty.

  4. How bout that situational hitting today fellers! Lets see some more of that! Washington makes me love our defense.

  5. Nice to have Marshall back. He was goooood. The bullpen is just so much better when he is available.

  6. Glad to see that Marshall looks healthy and at full capacity.

  7. Gotta love BP he seems to have so much fun playing this game

  8. Wow, nice strikeout pitch from Broxton

  9. Broxton 6’4″ 300lbs. He’s just a little feller.

  10. And 10 pitches for Broxton. Got to be feeling pretty good about now.

  11. I’d really like a couple runs here so the Reds can avoid using Chapman. They have the bottom of the order up in the 9th.

  12. Get a few more runs, save Chapman for tomorrow if needed.

  13. Man, I thought Frazier got all of that.

  14. They could leave Broxton in. There are other options.

  15. This is a save situation. You use your closer.

  16. 32,514 on hand for today’s titanic struggle, 32,514.

  17. Frazier just playing with them. Cruel.

  18. I’m ok with Chapman pitching. It should be an easy save, and I like the idea of establishing a bit of dominance vs a probable opponent in the playoffs. Let’s make sure we take this series.

  19. Another reason I really don’t like Chapman as closer. He isn’t the same pitching consecutive days, and he really isn’t the same three days in a row.

  20. who, where’d the game go on mlb.tv

  21. Have a seat young man we will see you in DC.

  22. And the fact that this save will count equally with all the others… don’t get me stahted…

  23. 101 mph!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. 4-2 against two of the best teams in the game. You gotta be pleased.

  25. In CharlotteNCRedsFan’s Power Rankings, the Reds are #1.

  26. NASTY !!!

  27. First Miguel Cairo sighting of the season!

  28. Took him a few batters to get going with any velocity. I find that a bit strange.

  29. Nice home stand against two strong teams. Waste of Chapman there, though.

    The scary thing is Votto isn’t even seeing the ball well yet.

  30. Not playing the MAAArlins in this series, Nationals!!

  31. Now its off to face the e’ville Cardinals in the Cards home opener. Rain is in the forecast in St. Louis. Great series win over the Nats. Go Reds! Adios Amigos.

  32. I have nothing against Drew Stubbs (except his K rate), but I’m not really missing his defense right now. Choo Choo Ka Choo.

  33. Can’t say it enough; the Marlins we are not. Reds are looking scary early on.
