Statcast | Box Score | Game Thread

The game was over before the Reds even had a chance to hit. Two home runs, including a grand slam in the top of the first had the Reds trailing 6-0 and Milwaukee never looked back and the Cincinnati offense never really got going.

The Offense

Eugenio Suarez hit his 49th home run of the season while going 2-3 with a walk. Tucker Barnhart went 2-2 with 2 doubles and 2 walks. Jose Peraza singled in the 9th. That was it. No other hits.

The Pitching

Tyler Mahle allowed 7 hits, 3 home runs, hit a batter, and walked 3 more. The Brewers scored 6 runs in the first inning and almost ran him from the game as they sent 11 batters to the plate.

Keury Mella threw 2.2 shutout innings of relief with 4 strikeouts. Sal Romano gave up a run in 2.0 innings. Jimmy Herget tossed 2.0 shutout innings.

Notes Worth Noting

Eugenio Suarez is now all by himself atop the all-time list for home runs hit by a National League third baseman with 49. That also extends his record for home runs hit by a Venezuelan born player.

The Brewers clinched a playoff spot with the win. The Reds did not.

Tomorrow is the final call for Marty Brennaman’s final Cincinnati Reds broadcast. For those of you out of the Cincinnati market, MLB Network will have the game along with Marty’s call overlaid from 700 WLW for the entirety of the game. Fox Sports Ohio will be carrying Marty’s call ONLY for the 9th inning of the game in what is a huge mistake by whoever is making all of this happen. How everyone in the country EXCEPT Cincinnati/the Cincinnati market gets to hear all of broadcast with Marty Brennaman over the video is absolutely incredible. *End Rant*

    Here’s a way to listen. Go to Lexington, KY ESPN radio website. They stream Reds’ games. You can also find them via the free SmartRadio App. WATH in Athens and WRBI also stream Reds’ games regularly for free online. That’s how I listen out here in AZ.

    If there is anything right in this world, Marty will get to sign off with “And this one belongs to the Reds!”

    Losing season be darned if that gets to be Marty’s last call.

    There are light years between the Reds and the Brewers. It wasn’t that long ago that the Brewers were a laughing stock. They became successful but then like most small market teams had to rebuild but they did so quickly and now they’re back. That’s the way to do a rebuild. The Reds blew theirs.

    A different manager wouldn’t have made a difference with this team. It was a hodgepodge of rental players,inexperience players,bench players forced into starting roles and playing out of position,castoffs and waiver wire pickups. Not that long ago when the Reds were 6-7 games out of the wildcard,those moves were being praised here on RLN. A lot of us didn’t buy it and now most have seen the paint on the wall with this franchise. This franchise isn’t in it to win it. For lifelong fans like me it’s extremely sad to see a team like the Brewers…who not long ago were as bad as the Reds….changed their ways and built a winner. And then rebuilt it into another winner. I have no hope the Reds will make the necessary moves to right the ship because it would be a colossal and expensive undertaking to fix this franchise top to bottom. It has to start with ownership and currently they aren’t interested in doing what’s necessary except laugh all the way to the bank.

    It all comes down to winning. Congratulations those who got it done.
