Cincinnati hot off their win on Monday came into Tuesday nights game with high hopes of laying more runs on the St. Louis again like they did in the 9th inning Monday nights.
Not many runs were scored early, due to the fact Bronson Arroyo was pitching a perfect game through five innings. While St. Louis pitcher Lance Lynn struck out ten batters as both teams struggled to score early. The Reds were the first to get on the board in the 4th when Brandon Phillips hit a sac fly to drive in Zach Cozart. That would be the end of scoring for the Reds.
St. Louis then proceeded to put four runs in the 6th and another in the 8th to end the game 5-1.
The Reds can’t win them all, as much we would all love that it is unrealistic. As long as this team can keep winning series the season will be a good one. Anytime we can beat the Cardinals though all fans want to jump on that opportunity.
On a side note watching Derrick Robinson start in left was nice to see. I believe he will be a good player for the Reds in the future as well as a good bat, just give him some time.
The rubber match of the series is tomorrow at 1:45, the Reds send Homer Bailey to the mound to face Jake Westbrook of the Cardinals.
