Let’s recap tonight’s titanic struggle….
Chicago (NL) 3
W: J. Cueto (18-9)
L: M. Corpas (0-2)
S: A. Simon (1)
–The Reds won with, frankly, the C-team starting. Always nice when that happens.
–Johnny Cueto wasn’t great (four walks is a bit uncharacteristic), but he didn’t allow a run and got the win. Perhaps everyone can chill out now.
–Denis Phipps got his first big league hit. That’s nice for him. He had two hits today. Xavier Paul was the only other Red with a pair.
— Joey Votto didn’t start, but still reached base because he’s Joey Votto and that’s what he does.
–The Magic Number is now 2. The Reds could clinch tomorrow. Sweet!
–Oh, and by the way, the Reds clinched a postseason spot today. Go Reds!
–The bullpen was a little shaky today, allowing single runs in each of the last three innings. But, you know, whatever.
–The Reds have now won 91 games., equaling their total from 2010. Cool.
–Is there anyone out there who thinks Wilson Valdez is Better than Didi Gregorious?
