Time for a recap of tonight’s titanic struggle….
WP: Morton (3-6)
LP: Owings (6-12)
S: Capps (23)
–You tell me: is there anything positive about the Reds embarrassing themselves against the Pirates and dropping to within a half-game of last place? Anything?
–Terrible outing by Micah Owings in his return to the mound. Five earned runs in five innings. He’s still chronically unable to throw strikes.
–Ryan Hanigan — a rookie — was the oldest player in either starting lineup tonight. Not one of those players were alive in 1979, when the teams wore the uniforms they were “throwbacking” tonight.
–Wow, are these two pathetic organizations or what? A good case can be made that the Reds and Pirates have been the worst organizations in MLB over the last decade.
–That’s 70 losses for the Redlegs; 19 games under .500. Can it get worse? Will it?
*This Offense Stinks.
