The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game:
Homer Bailey took the role as hard-luck loser this afternoon after pitching a fantastic 6 1/3 until unraveling in the seventh inning. Bailey struck out twelve batters, earning the GABP crowd the right to cry in their pans of La Rosa's pizza. All three runs were earned, but it's not his fault the Reds didn't score more than 4 runs today.
Honorable mention goes to Shin-Soo Choo for getting on base three times and not ruining any important late-inning rallies.
- The Cardinals won. Reds still five out of first and now three out of second.
- Reds are gearing up for a road trip, starting in San Francisco which has some pretty weird things in it.
- I know they're supposed to be playing baseball, but a little sightseeing can't hurt, right?
- Someone tell the Reds that no one's gonna drag them up . .. .
