Reds Offense Shutdown In Loss To Mariners.


After a day removed from scoring thirteen runs the Reds offense “surprisingly” was held in check by Seattle left hander starter Joe Saunders as the offense was able to manage only one run in a 3-1 loss on this Sunday afternoon and losing two out of three to in the process yeah that’s very unacceptable.

The Mariners offense for the third straight game got in front off the gates as Reds starter Bronson Arroyo allowed a homerun to the second batter of the game and it was already 1-0. The offense meanwhile had three hits in the bottom of the first but didn’t result to nothing and pretty much after that the bats went ice cold.

Arroyo settled down after allowing the first inning but in the fourth he allowed a two run homerun to Justin Smoak to make it 3-0 Seattle. The Reds offense finally got something other than getting pizza again which that’s story for later in the seventh with one out Todd Frazier doubled to right then Chris Heisey brought him home with a single to left and now trailed 3-1

That was pretty much it the offense went down in order in the eighth and ninth as the Mariners made it look easy shutting down the Cincinnati bats. This offense is so predictable one day they will exploded for like 10 plus runs and the next scoring two or less its a big concern and must get it straight out. And to the Reds twitter account we love pizza and that but stop posting it everytime they get eleven strikeouts its cool but we care about winning and right now we need it so there’s that.

The Reds will head out to the road for a seven gamer before the all star break first stop Miller Park in Milwaukee to take on the Brewers tomorrow night Homer Bailey fresh off a no hitter will be on the mound for the Reds first pitch 8:05pm time to finish strong before the break very important road trip.
