–Eugenio Suarez was 3-4 with a double. Jose Peraza had two more hits. Brandon Phillips had a couple of hits, as well.
–Billy Hamilton just had one hit, but it was just another day for him in the field:
— Cincinnati Reds (@Reds) August 21, 2016
If Hamilton doesn’t win the Gold Glove, it’ll be a complete joke. By far the best defensive center fielder in either league.
–Tony Cingrani pitched a perfect eighth inning.
–The Reds out-hit LA, but hit into a couple of double plays that didn’t help their cause. In two other innings (the sixth and the seventh), Cincinnati had two on with two out, but Scott Schebler and Joey Votto couldn’t get any runs across.
–Schebler pinch-hit and stayed in the game. He struck out both times he batted. That poor guy is struggling: .188/.257/.344.
–Five game winning streak. You can’t win ’em all, but the Reds do have a chance to win another series tomorrow afternoon.
–He went seven innings, but it wasn’t the strongest start we’ve ever seen from Anthony DeSclafani: seven innings, four runs allowed on eight hits and a walk. Disco struck out six Dodgers.
–Beautiful day at the ol’ ballyard, but not so beautiful on the scoreboard. The Reds will get ’em tomorrow.
