Game 12 wrapup: LOB edition

New, 16 comments

Not a whole lot to say. We outhit the hell out of them and didn't score the runs. You can't really complain when the Reds got on-base at a .400 clip as a team and only scored three times. (If you're Marty you can, I guess.)

Once again, I'm not going to harp on situational hitting, because there's nothing you can do about it. I'm sure it will be all you hear about on the radio and from the columnists, but it's all bunk. We'll win this game 8 or 9 times out of 10.

11 LOBs tonight. The more the better, actually. It means we're getting on base. It's a good sign. I'm more concerned about whether our pitching can be this good all season. We were fifth in the NL in runs allowed coming into tonight. If that holds up, and we get a little luckier with our bats, we could put on an impressive run.
