ABOUT LAST NIGHT (THIS MORNING)

From our friends at Elias Sports Bureau…

…..

Last night’s game was the 13th 1-0 game in Great American Ball Park history, and the first time it’s happened in consecutive games.

…..

Congratulations, Joey!

Votto last night collected his 1,000th career hit – a double in the first inning off Michael Wacha. He and Brandon Phillips (1,407) are the two active Reds with 1,000 or more career hits. Joey’s first hit was a solo homer off Mets pitcher John Maine on 9/5/07. He ranks 32nd on the Reds all-time hits list.

Tony is Shining*

Tony Cingrani last night was brilliant in his 7.0 shutout innings, allowing just 2 hits and 2 walks while striking out 9. He’s given up 5 hits or fewer in all 19 of his big league starts.

(* see what I did there, Kubrick fans?)

…..

Today is Jay Bruce’s 27th birthday! Happy birthday, “Trey Deuce.”

Obviously, weather could play an important role on whether the Reds and Cardinals wrap up this 3-game series today. Stay tuned to @Reds and/or @Jamieblog on Twitter for updates.
