Reds at D-Backs (May 31, 2014)

Let’s get the month of May over with, shall we!? Perhaps the Reds just need to turn the page on the 2014 calendar and move into June. If only it were that simple to solve all problems, huh?

You probably couldn’t ask for a more lopsided pitching matchup in tonight’s game in the Reds’ favor. Johnny Cueto takes his sterling 1.83 ERA and modest 4-4 record and puts it on the line against Brandon McCarthy’s lofty 4.87 ERA and poor 1-6 record. So based on that alone, the Reds win, right? Too bad they have to play the game though. I’ll also leave the comments about Mesoraco not in the lineup to you guys.

Watch the game and discuss it here! Go Reds!

  1. I kinda like Hoover coming in as long as he’s on a very short leash. Hes been good lately, good time to turn that into a regular habit.

  2. JJ Hoover in the bottom of the 9th. That’s a new one on me, why is Hoover doing the closers role. I’d rather see Broxton or Lecure. Why Hoover?

  3. Hopefully Smarzdia…whatever,…..ERA keeps a droppin’ this week. He starts against the Brewers tomorrow.

  4. AJ Pollack fractured right hand…Too bad for him…he was raking.

  5. Note to Reds: Don’t allow Hoover to pitch the 1st 6 weeks next year…Well done JJ/team!!!

  6. Didn’t major in math but by my count that’s 2 in a row.

  7. Alright, let’s go home with a winning west coast trip tomorrow. Friday was still one of the sorriest excuses for a MLB game I’ve EVER witnessed, but I owe some thanks to Porky Sarge for keeping the fires burning and encouragement flowing. Go Reds!

  8. Recap is slow tonight (compared to recent history). Wonder if it will be Chad since a few of the editors are away.

      • Probably one of those young rookie whippersnappers that hasn’t got the template or alternate ending routine down yet 🙂

  9. Great win by the boys tonight!! Glad too see Cueto get some run support for a change!!! C’Mon boys let’s make it 3 in a row tomorrow for the 1st time this year I believe.

  10. And this one belongs to the the Reds, boy do I love hearing Marty speak those words. Johnny Cueto is a man amongst boys when he is on his game, simply amazing. With Cueto’s pitching and the timely hits this was a Reds game that Reds fans could enjoy. More please. Another win tomorrow and its 3 outta 4 and a nice serving of crow for a few. Go Reds! Adios Amigos.

    • Put enough vinegar on it, I can get it down.

      Cueto is the man, amazing.

  11. Put ketchup on my crow please! Ketchup makes everything taste better!!
