The Reds won this game by a hair, barely achieving the win by a single run...criminy, we get the point already. Hanley Ramirez tied the game at 2 with a solo shot in the seventh, but Cincinnati won late--YET AGAIN--this time off of Ronald Belisario whom, over the last two weeks, has proven himself to be tired or ineffective or useless or all of the above. Not a good time for our bullpen to be fading.
Get me the hell out of this ballpark, which I should note was only 80% full (if that; there were sections of open seats in every camera angle) for two playoff teams. The Braves were swept over the weekend, which is good; and, the Diamondbacks two of four in SF, so our magic number is down to 10, no thanks to anything we did this weekend.
What the hell. Enjoy your Wild Card, Cincinnati. We'll be sharpening up our toothpicks.
