Reds 1, Cubs 0
The Reds 1-0 win over the Cubs was more evidence that these aren't Jim Bowden's Reds anymore:
--The Reds did not hit a home run in the series.
--They were shut out in 25 of 27 innings.
--They had a total of 14 hits in the series and only one for extra bases.
Yet, they won two of three.
The team ERA is 2.93 for the season. The bullpen ERA is 1.73. David Weathers has converted all five saves chances.
If the Reds start hitting, they could be dangerous. The team batting average is down to .226.
Adam Dunn says he'll definitely start Monday's game. Dunn told a funny story about him mom calling him in the clubhouse.
"What's wrong, Adam?"
"Just back spasms. No big deal."
"Don't lie to me. What's really wrong?"
Seems the Dunner's mother couldn't believe back spasms would keep him out. But he said they were pretty severe. It was the first time he's ever had them.
