    Reds threaten but can not score. Tied at one going to the third.

    Wood gives up a Home Run and Peraza makes an error on a ball right at him. Reds in trouble.

    Wood implodes and of course Haap gets a hit, Reds down 5-1. Biggest game and pitching lets us down.

    Aquino goes upper deck with easy power with a man on. Who was it asked why this guy was playing? Also makes Reds brass look like idiots by not having him up earlier. Cubs up 5-3.

    That was me. But, it was more of a question as to why were they sitting a guy hitting .340 or so in Phillip Ervin, after they traded Puig, in place of a rookie seeing his first action. Trust me, I'm glad it's working out. Just didn't make a lot of sense when it happened.

    Stupid move by Bell taking out Wood this early.

    Big hit from Farmer and Senzel gets on by, yes, catcher interference. Scored tied at 5-5. Winker hit for Wood so he is out after 3 innings. Votto up with bases loaded.

    I can't make this up, Votto strikes out looking for the second time tonight. But this time with bases loaded. The only chance he had was to walk.

    At some point give Votto a night off and let him rest or something. Twice in this game he has watched strike 3.

    He needs four or five days off. Let somebody else play that wants to hit.

    Heck fire, give up a two out Home Run to Castellaeos who now has two. Another Cub we can't get out, Geez!!!!! Can't play from behind the whole night. Cubs 6-5.

    Cubs second place hitter is 3-3 with two Home Runs and three RBI. Reds second place hitter is 0-3 with two strike out looking. See any difference?
