Pirates at Reds (July 13, 2014)

The Reds and Pirates conclude their series with today’s rubber match at GABP. The first two games have been exciting and I expect nothing short of that in today’s finale. Both teams are looking for a win and the series in order to stick right with the Brewers and Cardinals who are now tied atop the division.

Today’s game concludes the first half of the regular season. We will all get to relax for a few days and enjoy the Homerun Derby, the All-Star game, and a day off. Let’s hope the Reds have some momentum heading into those 3 “off” days.

  1. I like the lineup that Bryan Price’s lineup today. Makes liriano have to give Cozart and Heisey pitches to hit so he doesn’t put them on base for Frazier, Bruce, and Mes.

      • He still has to challenge them though instead of giving them bad pitches to hit and Heisey/Cozart getting themselves out.

        • I guess? Think you’re stretching a bit. This is not a smart batting order.

  2. Thunder and dark clouds in the northern suburbs. No rain yet, but coming.

  3. Simon to the All-Star Game. Couldn’t be more deserving. Congratulations Big Pasta!!

    • Simon was named a replacement on the pitcher staff for the NL All Star Team. They said on the TV broadcast that three pitchers would not be pitching in the game because of starts today.

  4. Going to be interesting to see Simon and Chapman together in the dugout with Anthony Rizzo. I would pay to see that.

  5. Back to earth, Chris……after a difficult inning for the opposing pitcher, and with your pitcher on the base paths the previous inning after drawing a WALK, let’s swing @ first two pitches…..why does this happen?

  6. Liriano still can’t find the zone and Heisey and Bruce saw one pitch each. Talk about helping a struggling pitcher out. Still, great to have the lead with Cueto on the mound.

    • Never a problem with guys swinging at strikes. Why would you want Liriano out of the game?

  7. I hate that the Reds are not capitalizing on these opportunities, all to often it comes back to bite you in the rear end, and there’s a lot of time left for the Pirates to do some damage.

  8. Doesn’t look like the rain is a threat to the game. It’s just scattered bursts. Had a strong one here in the suburbs that lasted for two minutes and stopped.

  9. Pulling for the Brewers or Cards? Think I’ll go with the Brewers. Hate having the Cards go into the break on a crazy hot run. and have sole possession of first place.

    • You’re right. Too late now but man that would have to take something out of him. The competitor in him wouldn’t shut off.

  10. That was an ugly K from Todd. Sure am glad Heisey is batting right now instead of Jay Bruce.

    • Let him off the hook once more – this is the type of stuff thst ends up costing Hanes and reds have been atrocious at it
