Last night was a huge win for the Reds, literally and figuratively. It’s a massive moral victory to get a win over San Diego in the last opportunity of the year for them to do so. It also brought them to .500 for the year, with plenty of baseball left.
Let’s hope it brings in some good vibes for a weekend series at GABP against the Cubs, which is always a raucous event.
- Sonny Gray makes his return to GABP tonight for his first start in almost a month.
- If you haven’t heard, Jesse Winker and Nick Castellanos are both starting the All-Star game.
- Reds farmhand Mark Koloszvary is heading to Tokyo as part of Team USA. That’s pretty cool.
- A guy we know was on TV! Crongrats to our bug-loving Oreo-burning crolfdawg!~
Well that just a really cool moment for me. I was just mentioned on the Reds broadcast since they had a mayfly explosion. pic.twitter.com/UzbK4GgldG— Andrew Meeds (@ameeds11) July 2, 2021
