Pirates 14, Reds 10
I did not witness this debacle in person. And I only watched the first inning while vacuuming my family room. Didn't need to hear the commentators to know this would be a bad day for Redlegs.
I only caught a bit of the rest on radio. Every time I tuned the Reds would score to two to get close. When I tuned back in, the bullpen would have given up two. Example: When we parked in Hyde Park, Adam Dunn had just hit a home run to and Jeff Brantley said the Reds are within 3. During lunch, my wife looks up at TV and says "I think it's 11-6." It was.
Ugly, ugly day. Uglier streak. Going from 13-13 to 18-33 isn't easy.
A lot of people in the organization have said "you don't want to panic." I think you do.
Do something irrational. Bring up Homer Bailey. Bring up Joey Votto.
I know I didn't say fire anyone. I never will. I don't think that's the place of a beat guy.
