    I guess that's as close as we can get to just saying, "The Reds played better and won" around here.

    Luis Castillo’s 26 swings-and-misses tonight were the most by a #Reds pitcher since Aaron Harang had 27 on May 4th, 2006.

    Castillo threw 105 pitches. Harang 121.

    To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible

    That change-up is just crazy good.

    I’m still trying to figure where all the “sloppy” play by the Reds happened...

    Reds pitchers struck out 14 Cubs batters. Reds scored 6 runs on 10 hits (one run wasn't earned). No errors. I'm sure there was baserunning goof in there somewhere. I guess because they weren't perfect? I don't know.

    Suarez killing it. Solo shot and the Reds are up 1-0.

    Reds put up a 3 spot in the first.

    Fun fact, Dietrich has more homeruns (and hit by pitches) than singles. I'd think that power should make some here very happy.

    But am I the only one that feels like he should have been over 20 HRs a long time ago?

    Solid battling at bat by Votto there, but I’d be interested in knowing how many times Votto and Suarez have gone back to back striking out looking this year.

    Miserable to have 2, 3, 4 coming up and suddenly have 2 outs without a ball in play. If the Reds are going to stay in it for the duration, and I think they can, those innings need to be add on innings. Not 1-2-3.

    Idk the answer to your question but Votto has 34 Ks looking this year.

    Reds still up 3-2 bottom 5.

    What’s his career high for K’s looking? Seems he’s done it more this year than he ever has.

    All that being said, he’s still a guy I want in the lineup everyday. Works pitch counts and gets on base.

    Bryant with his 19th HR to tie us up.

    More slop guys, Winker is a terrible outfielder.
