2014 Reds

Reds at Padres (July 1, 2014)

I’ll try not to post a jinx on the club tonight like I did last night by guaranteeing a win. Odds are by the time this game thread posts the country will either be celebrating a USA World Cup victory or weeping over defeat. I feel dirty watching as much soccer as I have this week so I need a good showing by the Reds tonight to cleanse my sports soul.

Whatever happens in the soccer, I do know the Reds play the Padres tonight. I like the Reds chances, whatever its worth.

  1. Cozart has 2 hits tonight . Why pinch hit for him? Another brilliant move by our genius manager.

  2. Another “Kick In The Pants” game. At least the Blue Jays are a legit team, though. Face palm all around. Embarrassing. Let’s hope JC’s run support, tomorrow, wasn’t all spent in the 9th, tonight.

  3. 2-4 would’ve looked a lot better if that abomination of a pitcher named Ondrusek didn’t leave the bullpen

  4. Good thing Price didn’t concede & throw in, say Ondrusek, or follow up with, like, Hoover.

  5. Having Ondrusek pitch a meaningful inning, and PHing for Cozart, who was 2-3. Pretty sweet by this manager.

    So.. does this just go to show how badly the Giants are playing lately? Sweep the Giants in a 4 game series, proceed to lose a series to the freaking Padres who were 12 games below .500 before this series.

  6. A trip to the wood shed courtesy of the worst hitting team in the NL…..epic fail….and could have been even worse… they were 3-14 with RISP.
    Mes needs to bat 4th, Phillips and Bruce need to go down in the order, especially Bruce, he’s been an easier out than Cozart lately…..

    • Including today, Bruce is hitting .333/.357/.481 over the last 7 days,

  7. I know tonight’s loss was disappointing, but this west coast road trip could have been much, much worse. Last night it wasn’t Padres 1 – Reds 0 it was more like Petco Park 1 – Reds 0. In almost any other park the Reds would have won that game. No excuse for tonight’s loss, the Reds gotta bounce back and win tomorrows game to limit the damage. Adios Amigos. Go Reds!
