Last night was tough, to say the least.

Yet, after four losses and the worst stretch of baseball this season, the Reds remain five games out of first place in the division. With two full months to go, including 15 games against St. Louis and Pittsburgh, there’s plenty of opportunity ahead.

So heads up, Nation!

The Pirates and Cardinals play a double-header today and Mat Latos takes the mound tonight for the Reds against Edinson Volquez.

With tomorrow’s deadline, expect a new batch of trade rumors (and maybe some actual trades!).

And reports that Bud Selig might go with the A-Bomb for A-Rod.

Also tomorrow, look for Homer Bailey to pitch the third no-hitter of his career, almost certainly assuring the Reds will win that game!
