Reds Win Big One

The Cincinnati Reds won a big game today, 4-2. Yes, I know there are 162 games. But this win came against the San Diego Padres at the end of a long eleven game West Coast road trip. Usually, West Coast trips are a disaster for the Reds. The Reds had a winning road trip, 6-5. Pretty good for them. As Cincinnati Reds Dusty Baker might say, "That was big." The win allows the Reds to keep pace with Pittsburgh Pirates and trail by one game.

The game? Jay Bruce and Ryan Ludwick went back to back with homers. Reds fireballing Aroldis Chapman went 1-2-3 to earn his eleventh save. He struck out the side last night to save yesterday's game. Here's the story with video. The Reds are in good shape for the second half of the season.
