Did you see those two homers that Ross hit tonight? Upper deck moonshots. Unreal. Even more unreal is the fact that the bullpen threw nine innings today, and the Reds didn’t lose.
Now the Reds are one game under .500, but more importantly, with a seventh straight loss by the Cardinals, the Reds are only 2.5 games back. (Yes, I know there are just five games left in the season, but there’s still a chance).
What is discouraging is this: with a simply mediocre September, the Reds would be playoff-bound. Can you believe that? Thanks, Jerry Narron. (And no, it’s not entirely his fault, but how many games has he blown the last month or two?)
