|FanGraphs Win Probability | Box Score|
–Not much to say here. Marlon Byrd had a couple of hits, including a double, and he’s now hit in 12 consecutive games. Burke Badenhop pitched a perfect inning in relief.
–The Redlegs were shut out. That’s bad.
–Jay Bruce was 0-4, striking out three times. That’s bad.
–I like when the Reds win. Shutout losses…not so much. That’s bad.
–Michael Lorenzen started and pitched okay. Not great, but it should have been enough to win: six innings, two runs on five hits and four walks.
–The Marlins have this pitcher named Jared Fernandez. He’s good. Really good.
EDIT: They also have a pitcher named Jose Fernandez. Oops.
–Byrd’s 12-game hitting streak is the longest streak for a Red this season.
–I really think this is the first game all year for which I’ve written the recap that didn’t ultimately go into extra innings or have a long rain delay.
I don’t like staying up late, necessarily. But next time I write the recap, I’d really appreciate it if the Reds could make the game interesting. They were never really in this one.
Reds lose but they’re still your favorite team so deal with it.
