Reds Roll

Yesterday, the Cincinnati Reds won their tenth game in a row. That's hard to do. I don't care if the last six games were against the Colorado Rockies and the lowly Houston Astros. It's hard to sweep any major league baseball team let alone do it against them at their ballparks. The Reds have not had this long of a winning streak since the special year of 1999. They did all of this winning without their best player, first baseman Joey Votto. They stand a whopping twenty one games over .500 and are now three games ahead of the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The Reds won yesterday by good starting pitching and clutch hitting. Drew Stubbs homered again. And yes, I'm one of those who's criticized Drew Stubbs for his strikeouts and failure to hit with runners in scoring position. Is it time to believe in him? I don't know. Anyway the Reds won by a of 7-2. Here's the story with video.
