Reds lost 4-3 tonight on an Astros run in the 9th inning off Ryan Wagner. Two close losses already in this series, but the pitching is keeping the team in the game, if nothing else.
I didn’t get to see the game, so that’s just a review from the boxscore. If anyone saw the game, I’d love to hear your impressions of Paul Wilson’s start.
Wilson looked great – until the sixth inning. (which is his SOP)
When he could start and toss first pitch strikes and THEN mix in a breaking ball or two, he probably would be able to stay in the game longer.
I think the pitching has been better than a lot of people thought – I’m just waiting for the 12-10 games to start coming along.
