Walks haunting Reds

CINCINNATI -- A walk proved decisive in the Reds' loss at Pittsburgh on Thursday. Nine walks were too many for even an 8-run lead on Friday. The Reds blew an 8-0 lead Friday to Toronto, losing 14-9.

Pirates 6, Reds 5

The Pirates came darn close to blowing yet another lead and losing in heartbreaking fashion. I don’t know if I could have taken another one of those, but thankfully, we didn’t have to. Ike Davis got it started with a grand slam for his first Bucco blast — a BROKEN BAT blast: But Francisco Liriano ran out of gas in the eighth, and Clint Hurdle (working with a short bullpen...
