Let’s recap tonight’s titanic struggle….
W: K. Lohse (10-9)
L: M. Latos (14-6)
–None that I can think of.
–Mat Latos gave up five runs on seven hits and three walks in six and two thirds. In fairness to Latos, very few balls were hard-hit, but those bloops still count as hits. Oh yeah, and the ball that Ryan Ludwick lost in the lights counted as a double, but should have been an out. Sheesh.
–Pretty shoddy defense by Ludwick and Shin-Soo Choo tonight.
–After the first and only fun week of the season, the Reds have followed it up by laying an egg. First, they lose two of three to the Cubs, and now they look lifeless in yet another loss to the Brewers.
You can recap this one if you want. As for me, I don’t really want to think about the Reds right now. Good night, Nation.
