Astros 3, Reds 2 -- 10-games-out blues
Let me start you off with a stat: The Astros are 7-1 against the Reds, and 9-16 against the rest of the league.
Edwin Encarnacion's two errors cost the Reds the game Wednesday. All three runs were unearned as a result. And the Reds are 10 games out on May 9.
"Seems like we're finding ways to lose games," Jerry Narron said. "We've got to start finding ways to win games."
About the time Narron was saying that, the blog got the "The season's over" comment.
Hard to argue. That only hammers home the point that you start Homer Bailey Sunday. You start playing Ryan Freel at third. (A stint in Louisville will do Encarnacion more good than harm). You see if Jared Burton and Brad Salmon can be the setup guys. You listen to offers for veterans.
Because 34 games in, what the Reds thought was going to work isn't working at all.
