Let’s recap today’s titanic struggle….

FINAL
Milwaukee 6
Cincinnati 0

W: Y. Gallardo (6-6)
L: H. Bailey (4-5)
BOX SCORE

POSITIVES
–Jay Bruce and Ryan Hanigan were each 2-3. Bruce had the Reds only extra-base hit, a double in the ninth.

–JJ Hoover pitched a perfect inning of relief.

NEGATIVES
–Homer Bailey was not good: he gave up six runs on eight hits and a walk, in seven innings.

–Joey Votto was picked off first in the first inning. TOOTBLAN.

NOT-SO-RANDOM THOUGHTS
–That was only the third time all season the Reds have been shut out.

–Homer Bailey is now 1-6 lifetime against Milwaukee.

–Our old friend Juan Francisco drove in three runs with a homer and a sac fly.

–I was kinda hoping the Reds would celebrate Johnnie B. “Dusty” Baker’s 64th birthday with a victory.

–What can I say? The Reds were never really in this game. Still have a chance to win the series tomorrow, however. Looks like Johnny Cueto will be making his return to active duty.
