Reds Rebound

After six innings of last night's game between the Cincinnati Reds and the Milwaukee Brewers with the Brewers taking a 3-0 lead, I was ready to write about another Reds loss. And after the previous 2-8 road trip, I was going to write about the dire situation the Reds were in. And no question, the Reds need players to pick it up. But this is baseball and as Yogi Berra would say, "It ain't over till it's over."

Starting Reds pitcher Mike Leake kept the the team in the game. Reds outfielder Jay Bruce in the seventh inning launched a two run homer. Then in the eighth, Reds first baseman Joey Votto blasted another two run homer. Closer Francisco Cordero closed the game for his 300th career save. The Reds stay above the five hundred mark. I'm going to talk about some changes the Reds need to do to stay in the Central Division race in the future. But for now, it's time to smile and enjoy the win. Here's the story with video.
