Reds at D-Backs (May 29, 2014)

The Reds continue their Western swing by traveling to Arizona to take on the Diamondbacks for 4-straight contests beginning tonight. The Reds will look to carry the momentum of last night’s victory of Kershaw and string together a few wins in a row. If the Reds can manage win tonight, it will be only the 3rd time all month the club has strung together back to back wins this month (They’re still waiting for a 3-game streak).

Tony Cingrani will be asked to be the man on the mound that leads the charge. Tony has not been sharp since returning from the disabled list. He has allowed 4 runs, 7 hits, and 3 walks in each of his 2 starts since returning. He’s also picked up the loss in both outings. Perhaps tonight is the night he bounces back and picks up a W.

    Luckily, my daughter’s kindergarten graduation ceremony tomorrow will prevent me from having to endure game 2.

    1. preacherj says:

      See if any of them want a job.

  2. preacherj says:

    We are a Skip away from being shut out with the minimum number.

  3. John Walsh says:

    The Diamondbacks are about to face the minimum. I guess this is karma for busting up Ryu’s perfect game. This offense is terrible.

  4. charlottencredsfan says:

    A horrible, terrible display of Major League Baseball. They should destroy any record of this games existence.

  5. Dale Pearl says:

    how fitting an end to this game.

  6. Dale Pearl says:

    worst game that i have watched in a long long time.

  7. preacherj says:

    A complete game 3 hit shut out. And those three hits were erased on Double plays. And this guy didn’t top 87. Wow. Just wow.

  8. Talkin’ about this pitcher like he is Cy Young… gimme a break, the Reds just sucked.

  9. wildwestlv says:

    Bronson will make this lineup’s heads explode tomorrow.

    1. John Walsh says:

      Thanks. I said the same thing and was shouted down for being a negative nelly.

  10. preacherj says:

    My kingdom to see Sweet Lou throw some bases.

  11. John Walsh says:

    The Dbacks are 22-33, and some guy named Collmenter faced the minimum

  12. I expect a no hitter from Bronson tomorrow, anything less will be very disappointing.

    1. John Walsh says:

      I’d actually root for Bronson. If we’re going to hit rock bottom, we might as well let Bronson benefit from it.

  13. ProspectCincy says:

    You heard it here first people …

    Tomorrow, Jay Bruce’s slugging percentage finally passes Billy Hamilton’s slugging percentage!

    Told me that before the season, and I would have though Hamilton was in the race for MVP!

  14. kywhi1 says:

    What, if anything, have Walt Jocketty and Bob Castellini been saying about this current situation the Reds are in?

    1. Whoa Bundy! says:

      Castellini was last seen wearing sunglasses and stiffly waving to fans from his box.

      1. preacherj says:

        Yeah, I’m beginning to think that look of disgust he had in that Pirates game last season was just rigor setting in.

    2. charlottencredsfan says:

      They’re going to blow this baby up and start all over. They haven’t said it but what else can they do? Like a tree that is rotted out, you can’t save it so you chop it down.

  15. sergeant2 says:

    The Reds have no recourse but to field a team for tomorrows game, I have every confidence that is exactly what the Reds will do. The Reds could very well win the next three games taking 3 outta 4 from the DBacks. I for one will be rooting for my Reds to do just that, 3 outta 4 that is. When the going gets tough, the tough get going. (fans included) If Bryan Price and the Reds are tough, they’ll come out tomorrow doing you know what, and taking names later. Go Reds!

    1. Dale Pearl says:

      yeah Like the spirit!

    2. preacherj says:

      I’m trying Sarge. And like Rambo said at the battle of Bunker Hill “I’ll be back.” It’s a little tough right now. This is ugly.

    3. charlottencredsfan says:

      Sarge you are my hero and a better man than I. Wish I could see any hope at all of turning this ship around. I’ll be here tomorrow nigh,t hoping it is the beginning of a nice run.
