Strange but true:

All three Reds starting pitchers in this series were acquired in the Cueto trade.

Sad it didn't work out for White.  Hopefully he can reignite the magic back in Fresno

Cozart singles up the middle
Votto grounds into FC, Cozart out 4-6
Philips grounds into 6-4-3 double play

No score
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

If Billy Hamilton could just learn to put the ball in play he'd be a star in this league. I'm fine with him figuring that out 3 days from now.

The Star Wars promotional value and all the May 4th activities confuse me. I understand if you like the movie, but why pay more money to go to an Astros game to express it? You can show up in costume any time you'd wish.

Gattis is a better catcher than I expected, but he has negated the positives associated by sucking at hitting.

Thanks for nothing.  I have to admit when I turned the game on and heard Brownie talking about the Reds lineup  I was cringing because I didn't want to hear Ashby.

It wasn't an error I guess, but I agree. He was in position and the ball hit his glove.

Gattis...0 fer his last 16...strikes out swinging
Valbuena singles to RF...flips bat
Castro...battling...strikes out swinging on the 15th pitch
Springer walks, Valbuena to 2B
Marwin strikes out swinging at a pitch literally...and by "literally", I mean literally...above his head.

That's six punch outs in three innings...still no score.

The next guy...again, they won't say who...taps back to the mound...1-3
Suarez strike out swinging

Gattis's ground ball was traveling at a speed of 111 mph. I think a ball hit at that speed is a hit something like 90% of the time.

The Algarve is an up and coming retirement location. It's basically on the opposite end of the country. But I'm pretty sure it's hard to go too far wrong in Portugal.

Any time you feel like coming down to have a look around let me know.

Springer is the shit. So much potential.

That catch was just amazing.

I think this season is Correa's "sophomore slump" and I think he'll be just fine long term. It's not an easy gig.

I don't know if my perception is reality, but he's hit a lot of rockets right at defenders. Not worried either.

Gattis is a better catcher than I expected, but he has negated the positives associated by sucking at hitting.

Gattis hits ok for a catcher. Better production is needed from DH.

Had a shot at Hamilton at the plate. Wouldn't have minded taking it.

2-1 Reds, McCullers out with 2 on 2 out.

Exactly my point. He is supposed to mash. His catching has been better than expected, but his hitting has been much worse, regardless of positional weighting.

It looked like the contact came after the throw was released.  But is that one of those things that is not worth arguing?

Correa falls behind 0-2, but comes back to work a leadoff walk
Rasmus strikes out swinging at a pitch that almost hits him in the face
Gomez strikes out swinging at a ball that bounces in the other batter's box
Gattis..3-0...walks on four pitches, Correa to 2B
Valbuena...quickly down 0-2 on two belt high meatballs...strikes out looking

2-2 still

Duvall rolls a routine ball to 2B...that fucking shift...no one is within 90 feet, so the winning run is now on base
Suarez doubles off the LF line, Duvall scores
Hamilton sac bunt...2-4, Suarez to 3B
Cabrera...infield in...squeeze bunt...out 1U, but Suarez scores
Pezara flies out F9

4-2 Reds

Worth, pinch hitting for Castro, pops out F3 in foul ground
Springer reaches on E5...which is inexplicably ruled a single
Marwin flies out F8
Altuve walks, Springer to 2B
Correa grounds out 4-3 on the first pitch...see that second baseman...that second baseman right there...where he was playing?
