Reds at Padres (June 30, 2014)

Mat Latos retruns to Sandy Eggo to face his former team. Of course Mat is now into his 3rd season with the Reds and it’s about time to forget Mr. Latos was ever a Padre and focus on him dominating the Padres tonight and carry the Reds to their sixth consecutive victory.

The month of June must come to a close tonight and with it so will the Reds’ best month of the 2014 season. A win tonight puts the Reds at 19-9 for the month and put them 6 games among the .500 mark. I’m not even going to go into the other outcome because this team is on fire and no way they lose tonight*.

1. Hamilton CF
2. Frazier 3B
3. Votto 1B
4. Phillips 2B
5. Bruce RF
6. Mesoraco C
7. Ludwick LF
8. Cozart SS
9. Latos

*The big, bad, blog guy who doesn’t even play in the game just made a guarantee over the internet. I’m sure it’s enough to fire up the clubhouse, right!?

  1. Mat could hardly pitch any better then tonight. This is the inning to get it done as Street is lights out this season.

  2. Recap is simple so far. Latos, good. Offense, bad. Then add the standard solid defense and not the greatest baserunning.

  3. To say the Reds are making good contact is a major understatement, just don’t have anything to show for it yet, yet being the key word. Go Reds!

  4. Baseball is a funny game. No way do the Padres deserve to win this, yet here we are.

  5. 11 K’s…. wow, SD pitchers seem to give us fits, if this score holds up I feel so bad for Lagos…..

  6. Wow. So many hard hits, deep centers, line shots by our guys. Nothing is landing. Add to the a couple of baserunning blunders and you’ve got a boring night and a loss.

  7. Just amazing !!!! 2 bombs this inning by reds and neither leaves the yard !

  8. I really hate this stadium. Well this gives Joey Votto the chance to hit a home run in the ninth I suppose if he isn’t already heading out of the parking lot in his stretch limo.

  9. I don’t see how anyone hits one out of this park… the ball just dies. Padres pitchers probably figure they can just throw gas down the middle and they’re never going to get anything but a catchable fly ball if someone connects. No wonder they’re 24-0 if they have a a lead after 7.

  10. Sam gives up walk when padres couldn’t hit their way out of a wet paper bag

  11. It’s games like this that really show the importance of smart baserunning.

      • Or having a designated guy to run into CF and tackle Cameron Maybin every time a ball goes out there.

  12. Wow. Someone caught he didn’t tag up before he went back. That is sharp on someone’s part.

  13. c’mon. He touched it or he didn’t. this should not take this long.

  14. And the reds lose another replay on this absolute worthless system – what the crap do these people look at on a review – pathetic !!!

  15. I hope MLB makes a comment on that call. I’d like to know the ruling. Do both feet have to go past the bag? Can’t remember ever seeing that type of play.

      • I’m a fan of replay. It is a work in progress right now, but I think it is well worth it. Only the bad calls tend to stick in people’s mind; it has gotten a lot of calls right.

  16. I’m thinking the retired umps looking at the replays don’t want to go against their brother umps. The retired umpires think they’re still part of the fraternity.

  17. Fun fact for Friday Night Light fans (tv version): The QB who gets hurt in the pilot episode, Jason Street, is named after Huston Street (and his brothers). They were huge athletes, and supposedly good kids in Austin a little bit before the show started up.

  18. Latos with the leadoff walk gets beat. That one has to hurt. The Reds have to learn how to play this park… the long ball is not going to get you there.

  19. The amazing part is we could have been no-hit tonight and still lost. The Padres’ only run came off a leadoff walk, a stolen base, and 2 flyouts.

  20. Petco Park 1 Reds 0 Back at em tomorrow, this game is history, end of story. If the Reds keep hammering the ball like they did tonight they’re going to win a lot of ballgames. Adios Amigos. Go Reds!
