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.
The Reds a season ago had a never say die attitude, and it showed again tonight. The Reds trimmed a 7-0 deficit down to 7-6, and brought the go-ahead run to the plate in Jonathan India. He hit a ball 368 feet, but it was right at Adam Duvall to end the game.
The Reds offense struggled once again against a left-handed starting pitcher. The Reds only had four total hits on the night. The Reds did put the go-ahead run on base in the 9th, but Mike Moustakas grounded into a double play to end the game.
Two of the hottest teams in baseball will square off for the first of three games tonight at Truist Park in Atlanta at 7:20 PM. The Cincinnati Reds (61-52) are 10-3 in their last 13 games, and they have played .619 baseball since May 30th with a 39-24 record. The Atlanta Braves (57-55) have won 5 of 6 to revive a season that was put on life support. They are just 2.0 games back now in the NL East, a division the Reds would be leading by a game and half if they were in it.
I's finally here. The Cincinnati Reds will play their first playoff game in 2,556 days at 12:08 PM this afternoon against the Atlanta Braves.
The Reds offense got off to a great start on Wednesday night when they collected three straight hits off Mike Soroka to start the game. The Reds were only able to scratch across one run in that inning and two more hits the rest of the night. Tanner Roark battled through five innings, but a Yasiel Puig error gave the Braves the lead in the fifth inning. They would go on to win 3-1.
