Let’s recap today’s titanic struggle….
San Diego 5
WP: LeBlanc (1-0)
LP: Cueto (0-1)
–LOL. ROTFL. LMAO. You want positives?
–How about some Greatest Hits from today’s game story:
LeBlanc retired Cincinnati’s first eight batters before Cueto popped up a bunt that fell between the mound and first base for a hit. Drew Stubbs followed with an infield single, but Cueto — anticipating an out — wandered off second base and was tagged out.
That was the first of three Reds to make baserunning errors. Brandon Phillips ended the fourth inning and Jonny Gomes the fifth by being caught stealing, LeBlanc to first baseman Gonzalez to second baseman David Eckstein.
You want more?
Stubbs, Cincinnati’s center fielder, caught Kyle Blanks’ routine fly ball and threw it into the stands, even though it was only the second out of the sixth inning. Nobody was on base at the time.
–Four hits. Four hits. One of those hits was by Cueto, the pitcher. The only extra-base hit was by a guy who didn’t start, Ryan Hanigan. Sheesh.
–This team is a complete and utter disaster. Period.
*This Offense Stinks.
