Recap: Reds Sweep Doubleheader, Win 9-4

And this one belongs to the Reds!!! The Reds completed a doubleheader sweep with a 9-4 victory over the Pirates. The Pirates, now losers of six straight games, dropped to 14-32 on the season while the third consecutive win for the Reds moved them to 23-26.

Cincinnati trailed two separate times in the game but were able to come back thanks to a two-run Home Run off the bat of Brian Goodwin in the second inning and then a three-run bomb by Mike Moustakas in the fifth.

The Reds bullpen combined for 2 1/3 innings of shutout baseball allowing just one hit while striking out four batters.

Tomorrow evening at 6:40 p.m. Eastern Time Michael Lorenzen will take the mound for his first start of the season against Joe Musgrove of the Pirates.

Offense Provides Insurance Runs

In a season that has seen the Reds post the worst batting average in all of baseball, the offense found some creative ways to manufacture runs this evening.

After a few early Home Runs from Brian Goodwin, Joey Votto, and Mike Moustakas, the Reds blew the game open in the bottom of the sixth inning without a single base hit.

Freddy Galvis led off the sixth with a hit by pitch and was followed by three consecutive walks the eventually drove in a run. After an error at short stop on a ball hit by Nick Castellanos, the Pirates threw a wild pitch that scored a run and walked another.

When the inning was over the Reds had advanced their lead to 9-4.

Bullpen Shuts It Down

After Anthony DeSclafani completed 4 2/3 innings, Manager David Bell turned to the bullpen to complete the final 10 outs of the game.

Jose De Leon was called upon first but walked the first two batters he faced to load the bases in the fifth inning. Sal Romano, recently selected from the alternate site, came in and got the final out of the inning in a high leverage spot.

Archie Bradley came in to pitch the sixth inning and completed a shutout inning with two strikeouts. Bradley has now thrown 5 2/3 innings of shutout baseball in a Reds uniform. He has allowed just three hits and struck out five.

Nate Jones closed down the seventh inning with a perfect frame while striking out two batters as well to give the Reds staff 11 on the game. Added to the 14 in Game One, the Reds now have 494 strikeouts on the season which leads Major League Baseball.

      The Cardinals have currently played 42 games (7 less than the Reds for example). They have 3 doubleheaders coming up and will not have an off day the rest of the season (the Reds have 1).

      If the Covid Cards end up with 10 fewer games than the rest of MLB (by some scheduling miracle or intrasquad games that count in the standings lol) the standings will be based on winning percentage.

      I clicked on 3 pictures of trains, screwed up and clicked on a truck that I thought looked like a train because I didn’t have my glasses on, grabbed my glasses, tried again and successfully clicked on 4 pictures of a motor bus to urge you to seek help!
