Reds 2-1, win the series
POTG: SP Marquis von Jason (6 IP, 4 H, ER, 2B, K)
Runner Up: 3B A Ram (3 H, RBI, 2B), 2B D Rosa (2 H, HR, R, RBI), SS C Turis (that doesn’t work at all; 2 H)
This got so terrible, it almost killed this gimmick three games in. That seventh inning was brought in from last year just to remind us how little has actually been accomplished. And the two guys who are supposedly supposed to be solid in the bullpen were anything but (not that they got much help.)
This baserunning goofiness needs to stop already.
At least Marquis was quality (though perhaps some more Ks will help) and Guzman was good for the one batter he faced. And DeRosa and A-Ram are hitting to make up for the guys who aren’t.
Any situation where Ronny Cedeno is pinch hitting with runners out is a bad situation for us all.
