The Reds are a cool .500 right now. They just took the first two games of the series against the Giants and some outstanding pitchers. Latos’s incredible outing was followed by a solid outing (although a bunch of hits were given up) by the reliable Bronson Arroyo.
It seems like whenever we talk about someone on the podcast (Rolen, Latos, Hoover) good things happen so we hope to keep that streak alive in the future. Rolen was able to get to Zito with a solo home run in the 7th. A huge boost for the struggling Rolen and enough to get the Reds rally going in the 7th.
After doing nothing almost all game the Reds came alive with the help of some poor baseball by the Giants to get 4 runs in the 7th and take the game.
Huge, huge, huge for the Reds who have now won 5 of their last 6.
A sweep would be nice, but I am happy the Reds got the two wins in the series they needed.
Let’s go RedLegs!

The Cincinnati Reds, one of the preseason favorites to win the NL Central, are 8-9, 2.5 games out of first place. On the surface, that looks fine. But dig a little deeper, and you realize that the team's offense has been awful. They're htiting just .229 with only 11 homers, and with the entire team struggling, it's hard to point the blame at one person. Well, I can think...

Scott Rolen's homer started a four-run rally in the seventh inning that swept the Cincinnati Reds to a 4-2 victory Wednesday night, extending the San Francisco Giants' misery at Great American Ball Park.
Rolen's first homer since July 6 ended Barry Zito's shutout and got into the Giants' bullpen, which let the game get away on a rain-slicked field.
Dad of the Year, right here. Watch this guy try to catch a Jay Bruce home run while holding his kid. Lucky the ball didn’t crack the kid in the skull I guess he gets points for not dropping the kid? H/T TBL
