The Reds are a cool .500 right now. They just took the first two games of the series against the Giants and some outstanding pitchers. Latos's incredible outing was followed by a solid outing (although a bunch of hits were given up) by the reliable Bronson Arroyo.
It seems like whenever we talk about someone on the podcast (Rolen, Latos, Hoover) good things happen so we hope to keep that streak alive in the future. Rolen was able to get to Zito with a solo home run in the 7th. A huge boost for the struggling Rolen and enough to get the Reds rally going in the 7th.
After doing nothing almost all game the Reds came alive with the help of some poor baseball by the Giants to get 4 runs in the 7th and take the game.
Huge, huge, huge for the Reds who have now won 5 of their last 6.
A sweep would be nice, but I am happy the Reds got the two wins in the series they needed.
Let's go RedLegs!
