Time for a recap of tonight’s titanic struggle….

Cincinnati 2
Pittsburgh 12
WP: Duke (10-11)
LP: Lehr (2-1)

Last two nights:

Cincinnati Reds 4
Pittsburgh Pirates 17

–The Reds are now in last place in the National League Central, all by themselves.

–Twenty games under .500: 51-71.

–That’s seven losses in their last 8 games.

–Pittsburgh has more consecutive losing seasons than any team in baseball (sports?) history. They have traded away every established major leaguer on their roster, practically. They are the perennial laughingstock of MLB…

…and they are thoroughly embarrassing the Reds right now.

–I’m sad.
