From our friends at Elias Sports Bureau: The Reds started nine right-handed hitters against right-handed pitcher Trevor Bauer Tuesday night. According to Elias, it’s the first time since April 22, 2005, that any team started nine right-handed hitters against a right-handed pitcher. The Astros started nine righties against the Cardinals’ Jason Marquis in that game. Regardless of the handedness of the pitcher, it’s the first time the Reds have started nine righties, none of whom were switch-hitters, since May 8, 2001, a game in which Randy Johnson struck out 20 hitters.
Brandon Phillips posted his second straight 3-hit game, Todd Frazier belted his 10th home run and Ryan Ludwick ripped an RBI-triple as the Reds won their 4th straight game, defeating the Cardinals Friday night, 5-3.
