Well, the Reds had their chances tonight, but couldn’t pull out a win against one of the hottest teams around.

I suppose there are some positives to take away from tonight’s game, however. This kid Jay Bruce had another good game: 2-4 with his third homer. Two of the crappiest pitchers on the planet — David Weathers and Gary Majewski — had good outings. Edwin Encarnacion hit a homer, providing some hope that he’s close to emerging from his slump.

Another chance tomorrow. Things are still looking pretty good for the good guys.
