Key Plays

  • The Reds did some things. Good things, even! They had a lead!
  • Then the Pirates took it back, the juggernaut that they are, of course.
  • Then the Pirates lead became bigger and bigger.
  • The Reds came back. Almost all the way back! This was cool.
  • But naw, they lost. Here’s a box score.

Other Notes

  • As bad as these jerseys are, pretty fitting the Pirates were wearing all black for this series, since they’re actual, literal villains.
  • The Reds have now lost 10 straight in Pittsburgh, and are 2-15 at PNC Park dating back to last season.
  • After being swept in three games by the Pirates, the Reds now only lead them in the division by ... 5.5 games.
  • This whole series has been garbage.
  • The Reds will play again tomorrow, should you still care. The next exciting series foe will be checks notes four games with the Miami Marlins. The game starts at 7:10 PM EDT. Don’t break your DVR scheduling this one.
