What Light Through Yonder Window Breaks?

I think it’s pretty safe to say that Yonder Alonso likes to play baseball in Florida. He was the MVP of last night’s game, going 3 for 4 with a home run and four RBI’s, including the game winning runs. The Reds beat the Florida Marlins 8-6 in yet another comeback win – their 33rd of the season.

The Reds’ offense helped to back up Johnny Cueto’s less-than-ideal outing, during which he gave up 3 runs in five innings and walked six batters.

Today, we have a doubleheader. My gosh, I just love doubleheaders. Hopefully, our guys will be able to come through in a big way and send those Marlins back to the deep blue sea.

Ew. Marlins are disgusting.

As always, GO REDS!

Coming Back

Last night’s game was exactly the type of game that we should expect from the “Comeback Kids.” Jay Bruce’s three-run homer brought the Reds to a 5-3 comeback victory last night, putting the Reds three games out of .500, 10 games out of first place, and in sole possession of that third place spot in the NL Central standings. Oh, and the Reds outscored the Bengals last night. More proof that baseball reigns supreme.

Can I get a “BRUUUUUUUCE”?

The Reds now are in a three-game winning streak, and wins are wins no matter how small. You never know what can happen this late in the season, so it’s important to keep your spirits up and keep supporting our guys in red! I like the way the Reds have been playing lately, and hopefully they’ll work on finishing strong. Besides, wouldn’t claiming the Central so late in the season be the ultimate comeback? We think so.

In other news, Cozart underwent Tommy John surgery yesterday, and Dr. Tim Kremchek claims that he should be back to 100% by December. We’re looking forward to seeing what Zach can do in 2012. Yesterday was also Zach’s birthday, so hopefully Dusty got him a good present since he had to get surgery on his birthday!

Maybe this My Little Pony Stormtrooper.

Our pal, Brandon Phillips has been out for a couple of days after being hit by a pitch, but managed to score as a pinch runner on Bruce’s homer last night. We are hoping for a speedy recovery and that he can be back soon (although we’ve won the past three games without him so maybe he should take his time?) We’re kidding, of course.

Get well soon, shawty!

Well, we think that’s about it for now in Reds Country. Homer Bailey will take the mound against the Padres tonight at 7:10, and we think you should all go out to the game and support our guys. They’re giving away the Reds Relief Pitcher sponsored by Coca Cola, so head down to the yard tonight!
