Offense stifled again as Reds drop game, series to Marlins

A stinker of a game and a stinker of a series.

For the second night in a row, the Reds could only muster to push one run across the plate to drop a disappointing series to the Miami Marlins. Saturday night’s game was a little more understandable, as Sandy Alcantara is having a fantastic season. But managing only two base runners against owner of a 7.19 ERA Jesus Luzardo is a whole different story. Jonathan India led off the game with a double and no other Red got a hit until Tyler Stephenson hit an infield single in the top of the 9th.

Tyler Mahle was once again solid in a road start, going 7 innings and allowing 4 hits and 2 walks with 6 strikeouts. The only damage was a 1st inning 2-run blast that was enough to beat the Reds offense today. Anyway, there’s not much else to write about this one. It was a letdown of a game in a letdown of a series, with the Reds missing a chance to separate themselves in the Wild Card race. The Reds need to bounce back this week, as they welcome the St. Louis Cardinals to town in another important series.
