The Cincinnati Reds won their third game in a row, jumping out to a 2-0 lead from a Jay Bruce 411 foot home run to right field off Kyle Lohse. The home run was a great at bat that Bruce started out 0-2, ran full in the count, fouled off a couple tough pitches and hit a homerun to the Sun Deck off an offspeed pitch.
From there the Cardinals would tie the game up at 2 with a home run from Ryan Ludwick, but the Reds would take the lead and never look back from big hits from Laynce Nix, Brandon Phillips, and starting pitcher Aaron Harng among others.
There will be a longer post about some things pertaining to the Reds and how they’re getting by without Joey Votto (he missed his own bobblehead day) right now after the conclusion of this series.
It was a fun saturday due to the Reds strong play and taking a series from a first place team who has enjoyed a lot of success against us in the past few years.
