This afternoon’s Cardinals/Brewers game was displayed on the GABP videoboard during Reds batting practice.   Trailing 7-5 in the 8th inning, the Brew Crew loaded the bases with 2 outs.   Cardinals reliever Edward Mujica fanned  Juan Francisco to end the inning.   The Cardinals would go on to win, 8-6.

Brewers beat writer Tom Haudricourt tweeted,

 

The Reds enter tonight’s game  3 1/2 games behind the NL Central division-leading Pirates and 2 games behind second-place St. Louis.  The Reds have 7 games remaining with the Cardinals (8/26-28 at StL, 9/2-5 vs StL) and 6 games to go against Pittsburgh (9/20-22 at Pit, 9/27-29 vs Pit).

Here’s tonight’s pregame rundown, courtesy of my pal @Bongreatness

Tonight is the annual Rosie Reds “Guest of the Reds” Night at the ballpark. Over 2,500 Rosie Reds members will be joining us at tonight’s game and will participate in a number of activities, including joining in a pregame parade around the warning track, a ceremonial first pitch offered up by Rosie Reds President Myra Riefle (reef-lee), the National Anthem being sung by Rosie Reds member Gina Rieman and tonight’s Honorary Captain is retiring Army Colonel & Rosie Reds member Sherrie Lakes.

Tonight is also the annual RCF Match Program Night at the ballpark. Now in its eighth season, the “Match” program, sponsored by Coldwell Banker West Shell, blends inner-city baseball organizations with suburban counterparts. Kids, coaches and parents join together with the goal of breaking through cultural, social and racial stereotypes, using baseball as the common language. Over 800 participating kids and coaches of the program will be joining us at tonight’s game and will also participate in a pregame parade and pregame ceremony.
