Brandon Phillips belted 2 home runs, Mat Latos pitched 7.0 strong innings (5h, 2r, 1bb, 8k, 1hr) and Aroldis Chapman notched his second save as the Reds won their 4th straight game, defeating the Braves Tuesday night 4-3. 

Zack Cozart homered for the second consecutive day and is 4-for-11 in his last 3 games.  Michael Bourn homered twice for the Braves – his first career multi-homer game.

26,438 showed up for Tuesday’s “titanic struggle.”  Here’s hoping for 30,000 Wednesday.  Why not?


The fourth #VoteReds Lunch of 2012 takes place Wednesday beginning at Noon ET on Twitter.  Follow me at @Jamieblog and tell me what’s on the day’s lunch menu and how many times you’ve voted for our beloved Redlegs for this year’s All-Star Game.  Photos are indeed encouraged and polls will be open all day. 

One lucky voter will win a Better Off Red t-shirt and every “constituent” who participates using the hashtag #VoteReds will be featured on Thursday’s roll call right here on BOR.


2012 Reds: 23-19, 2nd (as of press time), -0.5

1972 Reds: 24-18, 2nd, -1.5


Expect good news!



I was at the game, and near the end we saw something about free pizzas to all fans because of the strikeout count. Did we reach the number required? If so how do we redeem this?

🙂 LOVE This photo…..our darling Mr. Phillips, laughing and smiling…as if to say “Yeah, ya’ll look out,I got this one, tonight’s my night!” So comfortable in his coolness!!😉

Hey, Adam, I was there too last night. According to the announcement at the end of the game, take your ticket stub to LaRosa’s in the next 7 days. You’ll get a free small pizza and a coupon for a free scoop of ice cream at UDF.
