The Short Version: The Reds lost. Again. Whatever.
|Cincinnati Reds (59-80)||3||6||0|
|Pittsburgh Pirates (68-71)||7||12||1|
|W: Musgrove (6-8) L: Reed (0-2)|
|FanGraphs Win Probability | Box Score|
–Scooter Gennett hit two home runs. He now has 22 homers on the year. That’s good.
–Matt Wisler struck out two hitters in one shutout inning. That’s good.
–Scott Schebler had a couple of singles. I guess that’s pretty good.
–Cody Reed: five innings, six runs allowed on nine hits and a walk. That’s bad.
–The Reds must win their 23 remaining games in order to secure a winning record. The Reds must go 14-9 the rest of the way to avoid their fourth consecutive 90+ loss season.
Reminder – Homer Bailey ranks last in the major leagues in ERA (6.13) and second to last in FIP (5.70) among pitchers with 100+ innings pitched. #Reds

Gennett has not just one, but the two greatest single offensive seasons for a Reds second baseman not named Joe Morgan. Incredible. https://t.co/L3lL3fFzHl
