Reds 8, Cubs 4
Homer Bailey pitched reasonably well on a day when he did not have his best stuff. He finished 4-2 with a 5.76 ERA. He only allowed 43 hits in 45 1/3 innings.
Joey Votto drove in five runs. He finished at .321 with four home runs and 17 RBI in 24 games.
Hope for the future? We'll shall see.
This is my final post-game post. I've enjoyed the blog. It's a great way to get the pulse of the fans.
I will continue to blog in the offseason. I won't post as often, but I'll try to give you a reason to keep coming back. Thanks for reading and commenting. Justin Fernandez, if you're still reading, I apologize. You're entitled to your opinions -- even long-winded ones. Comment away, if you wish.
