The Good

Mike Leake was outstanding again.  Logan Ondrusek had a 1-2-3 top of the ninth.

The Bad

This lineup tonight.

The Ugly

Jay Bruce. What do they call it? The Golden Sombrero?

Not so random thoughts …

When Leake’s been hurt, it’s been the HR that his been his downfall. Tonight, he made a mistake pitch—to the the pitcher no less—and it cost the Reds in a close game where runs were at a premium.

When you are 9th in the NL in RUNS, 9th in HRs, 9th with RISP, are missing 4 starters–and face the team with the best record in the major leagues that is starting a pitcher with a 2.04 ERA–that’s a perfect recipe for defeat.

That’s exactly what happened.

Hard to believe Frankie Rodriguez already has 14 saves.

The good news? Cueto tomorrow.
