On May 3rd, the Reds were taken behind the woodshed in a 10-4 loss to the Astros.  Cincinnati fell to 14-15 on the year –  the first (and only) time they’ve been under .500

Since that lopsided loss, the Reds have looked like a different team.  They’ve gone 11-2 (.846 tops in MLB) and rank among Major League leaders in several categories including:

  • Runs (74, 1st)
  • Slugging percentage (.449, 1st)
  • On-base percentage (.358, 1st)
  • Total Bases (199, 1st)
  • OPS (.807, 1st)
  • Batting average (.284, T2nd)
  • Home runs (15, T4th)
  • Opponents batting average (.222, 5th lowest)
  • ERA (3.00, 8th lowest)
  • Hits allowed (97, T9th lowest)
  • Runs (45, 12th lowest)
  • Earned runs (39, 10th lowest)

Maybe having a losing record lit a fire under them?  Who knows, but I like what we’ve been seeing this month.



THIS is GOOD! Let’s hope it continues thru the hot summer!🙂 BP’s highlight reel is definitely adding to the spunkiness of the team!

It figures. My birthday was on May 3 and I’m pretty sure we have a losing record on that date (during my lifetime anyway!) I couldn’t be happier about how we’ve turned things around though. Let’s take care of the Bucs the next two games and complete the homestand sweep!
