The Cincinnati Reds (61-99) will look to finish the 2022 season with a winning streak. The Reds ended their 6-game losing streak with a 3-1 last night over the Chicago Cubs (73-87). The Reds have not won two consecutive games since their 3-game winning streak back on September 7-9. The Reds need to win both today and tomorrow to avoid their first 100 loss season in 40 years.
The final game of the month of April was a near perfect representation of the brutal first month of the season for the Cincinnati Reds. The Reds finish the month of April with a record of 3-18. That ties the 2018 team for the worst start in franchise history. The Reds are now just one loss away from the worst start in franchise history. The Reds have lost 9 in a row on the road.
Vladimir Gutierrez gave up two runs in the first inning, but the Reds pitching held up their end after that. The Reds bullpen has only allowed 4 runs through 13.1 innings this season as they held the Braves scoreless for 4.2 innings tonight.
The Reds fought back in the 9th, just like they did 24 hours ago, but once again were one run short. Pham walked with 2 outs and Votto drove him in, but Aquino popped out to end the game.
