Resilient Reds

Before I discuss today's victory, I want to talk about the August 25th victory over the San Francisco Giants. The Cincinnati Reds had their butts whooped by the Giants in the previous two games. The Reds in the third game had gone up by nine runs only to see the lead evaporate. Going into the ninth, the Reds were losing 11-10, but the Reds came back and tied it with Paul Janish driving in Drew Stubbs with a single. It then took, of course, Joey Votto to drive the winning run in the twelfth with a single. Here's the story with video. If said this over and over again. The Reds are resilient. And didn't I predict they would prosper on the West Coast? The Reds went 6-3 to finish an excellent road trip.

Today the Reds beat the Chicago Cubs 7-5. The heroes this time were Drew Stubbs Chirs Heisey, Jay Bruce, Chris Valaika and Ramon Hernandez. A total team effort. And with the St. Louis Cardinals aka "The Little Bitches" losing today, the Reds extend their lead over them to a season high of five games. Here's the game's story.
