The Short Version: Four consecutive years with at least 90 losses. Go Reds?
|Cincinnati Reds (66-90)||1||6||2|
|Miami Marlins (61-93)||5||7||0|
|W: Urena (8-12) L: DeSclafani (7-7) S: Steckenrider (5)|
|FanGraphs Win Probability | Box Score|
–Gabby Guerrero hit his first big league home run in the eighth inning. It snapped a nineteen inning scoreless streak for our favorite team.
–The Reds have scored one run in the last two games against one of the worst teams in baseball.
–Anthony DeSclafani gave up five runs (three earned) in 5.2 IP. He did strike out ten, but also made two errors (hence the unearned runs).
–Six games remaining. 56 innings.
–That’s four consecutive 90-loss seasons for the Reds. If Cincinnati goes 2-4 the rest of the way, it’ll be the third straight season that this franchise finishes with a 68-94 record.
–The Reds have lost the season series against the Marlins for the fourth consecutive season. Cool.
–I dunno, man, I’m really ready for this season to end.
