Cincinnati Reds vs. San Francisco Giants, April 12, 2021

Cincinnati Reds players and fans hope the team will get back on the winning track in the first game of a three-game series against the San Francisco Giants at Oracle Park, beginning at 9:45 p.m. Eastern time. The six-game winning streak came to a rather harsh end over the weekend, with the Reds losing the final two games in Phoenix by a combined score of 15-3. Cincinnati in recent years has not done well on the West Coast, and a quick rebound would be a very positive step for a team whose collective identity is still being determined.

Great expectations for Cincinnati Reds after 14-1 win over Pirates

It was another day with impressive hitting in run-producing situations and for power, as the Cincinnati Reds won their fourth in a row and fourth out of five games out of the gate with a 14-1 win over Pittsburgh. Some in Redleg Nation and beyond will cite small sample size before being willing to consider that this might be the start of something big. I will certainly admit that it's too early to say anything other than maybe all of last year's bad BABIP luck is reversing itself in less than a week's time. It's also very fair to suggest that for at least the past two days, they have been playing against essentially a Class AAAA team.
