The Reds and Giants will take part in one of the crazier double-header matchups you’ll see. In game 1, the Reds and Giants will face off in a regular game in San Francisco. However in game 2, the teams will change uniforms with the Reds being in their home uniforms and the Giants in their road unis. Game 2 is the makeup game from July 4 that was rained out in Cincinnati. Considering how the Reds have played in San Francisco over the last year, I don’t have many complaints with this format.
Last night’s game was so fun to watch I could not turn it off and made it through the entire 9 innings. I wonder what the odds are of me, and many of you, making it through an entire 18 innings of West Coast baseball? If it means cheering on our beloved Redlegs to GO, then I guess we’ll have to make it through! If you need some added incentive, don’t forget that the Reds still owe the Giants some pay back for last season!
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
