Wick's Lazy, I'm Writing. Reds Lose To Chubs 3-1

New, comments

I didn't pay attention to much of this game. Whoopity DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game

I don't know what to do.

I guess Yorman Rodriguez will get another nod for the JNMHSotG.  I thought about giving it Corcino, but nada.  It's a case where saying CorciNO felt just as good to say CorcinYES.  Yorman went 2 for 4 with a RBI and a strikeout.  I wish we would get to see a bit more of him, but alas, we'll probably have to wait until Spring Training to get a better look.

Honorable Mentions go to Daniel Corcino with his 5.2 innings pitched with 3 hits, 2 earned runs, 4 walks, and 6 strikeouts.  Less walks and I'd probably give it to him.  Tucker B-Dub-Dog-Snot also get an honorable mention with a 2 for 3 night.

Everyone else on the team were a bunch of 1 hit wonder stupid heads.  I hate them.

Key Plays

  • The Reds scored the first run in the first inning.  Kristopher Negron led off the game with a double, Santiago sacrificed him to third, and Yorman Rodriguez picked up the RBI with a ground out to the shortstop.  Ludwick naturally grounded out to end the inning.  Reds lead 1-0
  • Cubs scored 2 in the bottom of the 2nd inning.  Chris Valaika was involved.  Wah.  Cubs lead 2-1
  • Nothing happened.
  • Nothing happened.
  • Nothing happened.
  • In the top of the 7th, the Reds threatened again.  Jake Elmore singled with one out, and Tucker Barntothehart followed with a bunt single.  He's a quick little guy.  Brayan Pena flied out to right field.  Then in full 2014 fashion, Kris Kristofferson Negron hit a sharp liner deep into left field.  Former Rookie of the Year award winner Chris Coghlan (hahahahahaha), caught the ball as he leaped into that stupid ivy (sobsobsobsob).  Cubs lead 2-1.
  • In the top of the 8th, the Cubs got the best of the Jumbo Diaz and scored another run.  Cubs lead 3-1.
  • Reds lose.

Other Notes

  • The Reds did not lose another 1 run game.  HOORAY.
  • I have to pee really bad.
  • The season is almost over.
  • Which makes me kind of sad.
  • But, also makes me kind of happy.
  • We need a restart button and a healthy and happy Joey Votto.
  • Corcino is kind of impressing me.
  • If I had paid more attention lately, you'd have better notes.
