The Morning Update (4/26) Cincinnati Reds, Cyclone

Alright a quick morning update today, I have things to do you people are all sleeping in so lets get to it.

Quick thing real quick. Has anyone seen Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown? Surely someone has. Anyways watched it on Netflix last night/this morning, what a great show. Premise of the show, Bourdain travels to places people aren’t going unless you’re VICE. He also went to Detroit, what a phenomenal episode that was. I highly recommend people watch it.

Cincinnati Reds (11-12)

Friday night did not go as planned for the Reds as they lost to the Atlanta Braves (15-7) 5-4. Homer Bailey had another rough outing, allowing 5 runs in the first three innings. Bailey has struggled in 4 of his 5 starts this season, the texan needs to right the ship soon.

Cincinnati’s offense came alive in the 6th and 7th innings scoring 2 runs in each inning to pull the club back within 1 run. The deficit would stay at one as the Braves bullpen stifled the Reds in the 8th and 9th inning.

Friday night also saw another snafu from Reds third base coach Steve Smith as he sent Joey Votto home on a shallow fly out to right field. Votto was thrown out by a mile at home. That could have been the tying run for the Reds.

Also, Devin Mesoraco and Todd Frazier left Friday’s games with injuries. Both with tightness in the legs.

The Reds and the Braves are back at it tonight at 7:10pm, Mike Leake (2-1) is on the mound for the Reds.

Cincinnati Cyclones

With a sweep in mind for Friday night the Cyclones lost 2-0 to the Orlando Solar Bears in game Game 4 of the opening round of the ECHL Playoffs. Game 4 was the second game in Cincinnati and the Cyclones looked to use the home ice to their advantage.

Unfortunately the attacking, high scoring offense the Cyclones have had for the first three games did not show up. Shutout at home is not what the Cyclones or anyone wanted to see.

The two teams face off in Game 5 Saturday night at 7:30 inside US Bank Arena, tickets are available so get out there and show you your support.

Video of the Day

Portugal’s military has drones. Unfortunately they are not submarine drones.

By the way could the media have cut away any faster? And what are you doing Portugal, the United States are flying Blackhawk helicopters like they’re RC toys. You bought a kit at KB Toys.
