The Cincinnati Reds had not made it to the All-Star break with a winning record in seven years. That changed on Friday night in Milwaukee. The Reds clinched their first winning record in the first half since 2014. The Reds are now 23-14 in their last 37 games, and they are 6.0 back in the NL Central. The Reds are also now 31-14 vs the NL Central since September 13, 2020.
The Cincinnati Reds (45-42) will try to rebound from a tough loss last night against the Milwaukee Brewers (53-36).
There is no team in baseball with a better record than the Cincinnati Reds' 11-3 mark since May 29th. Aristides Aquino put the Brewers to bed for good in his first start back of the IL with a two-run bomb. The Reds won 10-2 to get to within three games back in the loss column behind the Brewers and Cubs.
The Reds entered play on Friday having not scored in 23 consecutive innings. David Bell put out a lineup that featured Matt Davidson, Curt Casali and Christian Colon in the heart of the order. The Reds of course scored 6 runs in the 2nd inning, started off by a Kyle Farmer RBI-double and capped with a Matt Davidson 3-run bomb. Trevor Bauer continued his dominance, and he is a legit early season NL Cy Young candidate. The three game losing streak is over.
