Seriously, just beat this team. Win this game, win the series. Save the cheerleader, save the world, or something like that. It's post All Star Break, so Lance Lynn should be awful and there's no excuse to not put 5 runs on him by the second inning. Also, remember when we couldn't lose on Sundays? Let's try to rekindle that. Go Reds!
