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!
