This has been another tough game to watch, as Edwin Jackson has thrown fewer than 50 pitches through five innings and has retired 10 straight Reds hitters. I keep telling myself that it's still really early and the ineptitude that the Reds have shown at the plate is not indicative of their skill level. But dang, this sucks some major honky apples.
