Reds sweep the Dodgers?!!!

This week was going to be a test for the Cincinnati Reds. First, they faced their National League Central nemesis, the St. Louis Cardinals. Now folks, the Cardinals own the Reds and were ahead of them in the division along with the Pirates. Reds take three of four.

Then came a three game set with he Los Angeles Dodgers. It's one of those teams that money has put together. I hate baseball's economics. But I digress. The Dodgers are perhaps the most talented team in major league baseball. They pretty much have the Western Division sewn up. I was not thinking sweep. Hopeful for two out of three. Could see losing two. But the Reds defy all odds. They took all three. Last night the Reds won in walk-off fashion. Reds catcher Ryan Hanigan doubles home Zack Cozart all the way from first in the bottom of the ninth. Reds win 3-2. The Reds now stand just one and a half games from first in the Central Division. They are tied for second. Here's the story from last night's game. And here's video of Hanigan's double to win the game.
