MONDAY’S #REDS BASELINE ITEMS
How ’bout them Redlegs? With 81 games in the book and 81 to go, the Cincinnati club is 43-38 after starting the season 3-8.
The 2013 club was 46-35 after 81 games; the 2012 Reds were 44-37 and the 2010 team had a 46-35 mark.
A few random stats/tidbits…
- Just completed 4-game series sweep of the Giants in San Francisco, something the Reds haven’t done since 1972.
- Are 16-6 over their last 22 games (.727).
- Have the best record in baseball in June (18-9, .667).

With the team playing well, here’s hoping you can make it down to Great American Ball Park for the upcoming 11-game homestand; 3 games vs. first-place Milwaukee, 5 games vs the Cubs (including a doubleheader on July 8) and 3 games vs. the Pirates.
It’s a perfect opportunity for the Reds to make up some ground in the National League Central, and what better way to do than with a full ballpark?

Reds career saves leader Danny Graves was recently in Cincinnati as a guest of the Reds Hall of Fame. He’s currently involved in something really cool called 120 Sports. You should check it out and download the app.
The very popular “I Do’s on the Diamond” event is returning to Great American Ball Park on Friday, August 22 prior to the Reds/Braves game. That night, couples will get hitched (married) on the field during pregame ceremonies. For more information, including how you and your better half can participate, CLICK HERE.
That’s all for now. More in a bit.
Expect good news!
