Recap Up All Night: Reds lost 4-3

Errors and walks kill the Reds. But I added in some neat articles for you.

Mat Latos went 6 innings with seven hits, one walk, five strikeouts, and zero earned runs. He did have 3 unearned runs, but hey. He also had a hit, which is the same number of hits as any other respectable Red.

Honorably mention to Jay Bruce, who hit a home run.

Key Plays

  • The Reds got bases loaded with no outs and the heart of order up, and you can predict how that ended.
  • The Reds, amusingly, went up first in the fifth. With two outs, Latos singled, Hamilton singled, and Schumaker's single brought in Latos on a grounder up the middle. Todd Frazier would end the threat. Reds 1-0.
  • Los Ciu got them back in the sixth, though. Flores reached on an error, and a Granderson single brought him home. After a popout that would've gotten the inning over, Anthony "Home" Recker hit a two-run bomb. Mets 3-1
  • Granderson also hit a homer in the eighth, because JJ Hoover is having that kind of year.
  • The Reds led off the 9th with a Bruce homer and a Hannahan ground-rule double (since the only way Jack could get to second base is if an umpire points at it). Heisey pinched-hit and got out, but Ludwick pinched-hit and singled in Hannahan. Negron replaced Ludwick, and Hamilton worked a walk to represent the winning run with one out. Schumaker popped out, but Frazier barely beat out an infield single to bring the bases loaded with the Reds' best offensive threat in Devin Mesoraco to the plate. He struck out.
