Leake in full command for Reds

The Reds' right-hander watched the bludgeoning the rest of the pitching staff took Friday night at the hands of the Toronto Blue Jays.

Mike Leake on Cardinals: 'They have our number'

The Reds don't play on Monday and that is probably a good thing after Sunday's monumental beatdown at the hands of the rival Cardinals. All in all, Reds pitching allowed 19 hits and 15 runs while the offense struggled to muster any kind of serious threat (outside of a two-run homer from Zack Cozart).
