The Short Version: Four consecutive years with at least 90 losses. Go Reds?

Final R H E
Cincinnati Reds (66-90) 1 6 2
Miami Marlins (61-93) 5 7 0
W: Urena (8-12) L: DeSclafani (7-7) S: Steckenrider (5)
FanGraphs Win Probability | Box Score

The Good
–Gabby Guerrero hit his first big league home run in the eighth inning. It snapped a nineteen inning scoreless streak for our favorite team.

The Bad
–The Reds have scored one run in the last two games against one of the worst teams in baseball.

–Anthony DeSclafani gave up five runs (three earned) in 5.2 IP. He did strike out ten, but also made two errors (hence the unearned runs).

Not-So-Random Thoughts
–Six games remaining. 56 innings.

–That’s four consecutive 90-loss seasons for the Reds. If Cincinnati goes 2-4 the rest of the way, it’ll be the third straight season that this franchise finishes with a 68-94 record.

–The Reds have lost the season series against the Marlins for the fourth consecutive season. Cool.

–I dunno, man, I’m really ready for this season to end.

    Anybody feel like pointing out Disco got jobbed in the 4th? If you don’t agree, go back and watch the balls n strikes. I’m truly not a homer, and I understand that different home plate umps have their different zones… but watch it. At least 3 (crucial) pitches that got worked. Just sayin.

      Sorry, really just two terrible calls. Felt like it was worse the first time through watching.

    Another 90 loss season #Positive Momentum!

    After the inaction of the front office last offseason, with the exception of strengthening the bullpen, followed by the terrible start of the season, the fourth 90 plus year is not surprising. If the front office does not get moving regarding starting pitching and offense with adequate defense in centerfield, the Reds and their fans will face another ‘also ran’ season in 2019.

    Next year the Reds will only lose 89 games. That will show you bandwagon fans!!!

    I agree with you. We need to wait and see on Disco.
