The Reds under Bryan Price began the season 3-15. That team played without Anthony DeSclafani, David Hernandez, Michael Lorenzen, Eugenio Suarez, Scott Schebler and Matt Harvey.

Sure, it was just one game. Four innings. But Michael Lorenzen’s performance tonight was a much-needed dose of “maybe next year can be better” for Reds fans.
