Dust off those brooms everybody, the Reds are going for their first sweep of the season. The club is flying high after reaching the .500 mark with last night’s win and now look to finish off the Pirates in today’s afternoon tilt in Pittsburgh. Watching this team at full health and full strength has been fun and positive the last week or so. Let’s hope the Reds we’ve seen over the last week are the ones we see today and over the final 90 games of the regular season.

It’s an afternoon game so per Redleg Nation tradition, tell your boss to take a hike because you have a game to watch.*

Lineup:
1. Hamilton CF
2. Fraizer 3B
3. Votto 1B
4. Phillips 2B
5. Bruce RF
6. Ludwick LF
7. Mesoraco C
8. Cozart SS
9. Bailey P

*Telling your boss to take a hike may have consequences. The editors here at RN have done extensive research on this action and doing so may result in: loss of job, loss of income, more time to watch the Reds, more time to comment on our blog, the ability to sleep in, stay up late, more time to impersonate Votto’s swing, more time to pretend you’re faster than Billy Hamilton, and time to dream about hitting a Chapman fastball.

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

  1. I hate waste pitches…no chance of a swing…just tightens the count

  2. here comes Barmes again…sigh

  3. Barmes has owned Reds pitching… gulp

  4. Yikes, here comes the walk-off walk…

  5. My gosh… they can’t lose with a bases loaded walk, really?

  6. I can’t believe those last two calls. Unreal.

  7. Horrible Tony just horrible !!!!

  8. That last one was a strike.

  9. Balk, HBP, Walk = Yuck.

  10. Reds walk away with a loss.

  11. Walking in a run….darn, crappy way to lose….

  12. Tony throws his hat into the bullpen roulette wheel…he fits right in

  13. This Reds season. Man oh man. Its hard to have the stomach for baseball sometimes. Need a good showing this weekend to get back to .500.

  14. Bad balk, guy doesn’t even try to move out of the way of the HBP, and then a strike that’s called a ball wins it.

    Did the umpires just want to get out of the rain or something?

  15. Just can’t quite get over the (.500) hump.

  16. That one hurts. Back under .500 again. When you are that wild, you are not going to get close calls like the last 2 pitches.

  17. flippin unbelievable

  18. not a great way to go into a very tough 2 plus week stretch of games.

  19. Honestly, Cingrani belongs in Louisville working on his secondary stuff and staying sharp.
