Reds Respond with a Huge Saturday Night Win over Cardinals

I missed a lot of this game for date night, but I returned home for the climactic ending. And thus brings another point, FOX has gone and pulled a fast one that we actually like. I believe FOX did Saturday Night Baseball (aka Baseball Night in America) telecasts last year, but now they’re a regularly scheduled item.

While I miss the afternoon Saturday telecasts, I believe this is good for the game. And FOX is dressing things up by designing this fancy little logo which can be nothing more than a spin off of what the NFL has done with it’s big Sunday Football Night in America telecasts.

The Reds got into a 1-0 hole early. And then the texts started to flow in. Several friends while I was at dinner with ‘BRUUUUUUUUUCE’ texts. And by now I know what that means. Jay Bruce had hit his 10th home run of the season to tie the game at 1-1.

It was arguably the best team win of the year. Mat Latos did his thing in a game the Reds had to have and improved to 6-0. Shin Soo Choo, Derrick Robinson, Joey Votto, Bruce, and Devin Mesoraco all had two hits each. Bruce added what may or may not have been a home run saving catch. You be the judge:

The game came to a close on a controversial call, with Aroldis Chapman getting the save after Joey Votto appeared to pull his foot on a Todd Frazier throw. We’ll take it!

The win left the Reds three games behind the Cardinals entering the big Sunday Night Baseball showdown on ESPN.

One thought on “Reds Respond with a Huge Saturday Night Win over Cardinals”

  1. Fox’s “Baseball Night In America” is a hoax and a commercial grab.
    This year I subscribed the the MLB package, yet when Fox’s “Baseball Night In America” airs, every other channel, including all available PPV channels, are idle — in spite of many interesting other games in progress.
    I can only conclude that Fox monopolizes that time slot to charge more for commercial time, hiding behind the hypocritcal patriotic banner of their title “Baseball Night in America”.
    It is an outrage that I pay for all those PPV channels so I can pick my games, but on Saturday Fox picks for the entire country.
