Let’s recap tonight’s titanic struggle….

FINAL
Cincinnati 1
St. Louis 6

W: J. Kelly (6-3)
L: M. Latos (13-5)
BOX SCORE

POSITIVES
–None.

NEGATIVES
–The Reds simply cannot beat the Cardinals. (How’s that for analysis?)

–Mat Latos gave up four runs and nine hits in six innings. Alfredo Simon gave up two runs in one inning, but it hardly mattered, because the offense was anemic. Again.

–Terrible baserunning (Bruce and Cozart ended up on third base at the same time, through a confluence of events that I do not care to describe to you. Here’s the video.)

–Terrible defense. Bruce had an error. Choo misplayed a ball. Some nights, this team looks like a bunch of Little Leaguers. Tonight was one of those nights.

NOT-SO-RANDOM THOUGHTS
–This isn’t fun. Baseball is supposed to be fun, and this isn’t fun.

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