That Sucked. Diamondbacks 11, Reds 5.

No idea. - USA TODAY Sports

It's remarkably late, that game was remarkably bad, and I'm remarkably tired. Thanks for that, Paul Goldschmidt.

Joey Votto and his 3 for 4, 2 RBI, HR evening win.

That's just how it works, Marty.

Key Plays

  • Johnny Cueto got knocked around from the start tonight, as Gerardo Parra led things off for the Diamondbacks with a solo HR in the Bottom of the 1st, and things continued in the Bottom of the 2nd when Willie Bloomquist's single drove in Jason Kubel and Didi Gregorius, both of whom had singled, too. Reds trailed, 3-0.
  • The Reds appeared to have righted the ship in early, however, as a solo HR by Jay Bruce in the 3rd put them on the board and a Joey Votto RBI double and a BP soft grounder in the 4th knotted things at 3. Unfortunately, that was not the case. Paul Goldschmidt responded in the Bottom of the 5th with a two-run wankjob, and hits by everyone and their brother chased Cueto in favor of the bullpen. J.J. Hoover was brought in, but couldn't completely extinguish things, and by the end of the inning the Reds were down 7-3.
  • Curtis Partch was summoned from the 'pen for the Bottom of the 6th, but that went terribly. Goldschmidt homered again, and roughly 11 other people reached base, and by the time the inning was done, the Reds trailed 11-3. Joey Votto hit a solo doinkwurst, but the cavalcade of Derrick Robinson, Jack Hannahan, and Cesar Izturis couldn't...ohwp, wait a minute...Robinson scored on a single by Devin Mesoraco in the 9th. But yeah, that was that. Reds lose, 11-5.

Other Notes

  • The 7 ER allowed by Johnny Cueto was his most since a September 22nd 2010. Dang.
  • Ryan Hanigan is 'hitting' .189/.278/.268 this season. Dang. Jack Hannahan is hitting worse. Double Dang.
  • Shin-Soo Choo has 1 XBH in his last 37 PA. I think. I just added that up in my really tired brain, but it's sure as hell been awhile.
  • If you're still awake, you won't mind listening to a positively rad jam that's just a bit long. Jam.
