Friday Good Vibrations turn to Saturday Song Sung Blue: Indians 9, Reds 2

Last night's good vibes did not carry over for the Cincinnati Reds, who were pounded by the Cleveland Indians, 9-1, today. As wonderful as the Friday Wade Miley no-hitter felt from a Reds fan standpoint, today's steamrolling by the light-hitting Indians brings up some questions that this team will need to consider if they truly hope to contend.

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.
