The Reds travel to Milwaukee tonight to play a Brewers team that the Reds are 5-1 against this season. Who took the loss in that one game? Homer Bailey. That game was in Cincinnati on a Saturday in June. Do you remember what the Reds issued as a stadium giveaway that day? Of course you do: A Johnny Vander Meer Commemorative Print! Why is that relevant? Well, Bailey will be going for back to back no hitters tonight of course!
Now that I have jinxed the no-hitter before the game has started, we can now just focus on the Reds offense getting into form and the club gaining a win tonight. The offense really needs to GO!
While you wait for the game, how about a little history lesson on the city of Milwaukee…
A simple Reds fan from a simple town. I have been a Reds fan all my life. The 1990 team was crowned Champions during my prime youth years and I grew up idolizing Chris Sabo all the way down to the flat top hair style and the #17. I have passed that love of the Reds down to my three boys who love the game and the Reds just as much as I do! Follow me on twitter @CoachWilson17
