It's only been a little over a month since the Reds lost three in a row, but it seems like a season a go. That's because we've been spoiled by both good play and weak opposing pitching.

The Reds have averaged just two runs and 5 hits per game over this losing streak. It likely has everything to do with facing three good starting pitchers - which is a reminder that they can't really do without Joey Votto when facing decent-to-good competition over the stretch run and in the playoffs. Also, a few things are breaking the other way now. The Reds started off their big winning streak beating Fiers and Gallardo. But I think it's OK to talk about the playoffs like they're probably going to happen.

The team will try to stave off a sweep for the first time since June 20th in Cleveland.

Go Reds, because we're now entitled to very frequent victories.
