–The Reds were down 6-0 after one inning — what’s new? — but fought back to tie the game at 7 in the seventh inning.
–Great night for Devin Mesoraco: four hits in four at-bats, including a double and his 21st homer, two runs scored, and four RBI. Not bad. Not bad at all.
–Mike Leake has mostly been good this year, but not tonight: seven runs allowed on seven hits in four innings pitched.
Not so random thoughtsÃ¢â‚¬Â¦.
–Swept by the Orioles. Redlegs are 1-5 on this road trip so far. Eight games under .500. Oh Reds. Why do you break our heart so often?
–Baseball is so funny. Tonight’s lineup — Bourgeois, Santiago, Frazier, Mesoraco, Lutz, Rodriguez, Hannahan, Elmore, Barnhart — might literally be the worst lineup in the ten-year history of Redleg Nation. And yet, they scored seven runs against a first-place team. Crazy.
–A peek behind the scenes: writing recaps for a miserable team like this isn’t easy. The ol’ Redlegs just aren’t fun to watch right now, are they?
