Cincinnati 4

W: A. Burnett (5-2)
L: H. Bailey (4-4)

BOX SCORE

POSITIVES
–Zack Cozart had three hits. Joey Votto had two hits and a walk. Alfredo Simon, Jose Arredondo, and Sean Marshall were good out of the bullpen.

NEGATIVES
–Homer Bailey was awful: six runs allowed on eight hits and two walks in two innings. Horrible. JJ Hoover had another bad outing, giving up two runs in two innings.

–Mike Costanzo’s major league career is probably going to be very short. Brandon Phillips struck out four times.

NOT-SO-RANDOM THOUGHTS
–Reds are still in first place. That’s something.

A terrible showing tonight, Redlegs. Just awful. Milton is disappointed.

–Tomorrow will be a better day….
