Francisco Cordero blew his 6th save of the season, leading to the Reds 53rd loss.
The Reds should have won the game thanks to an adequate offensive showing and a decent outing from Homer Bailey (although he shouldn’t have started the 7th, but Dusty Baker is the manager). RHM almost missed the end of the game, but didn’t thanks to Cordero blowing.
The investment the Reds made in the offseason is looking pretty bad right now. Of course, so does the team. It’ll be interesting to see what they do at the trade deadline. Will they cling to the bizarre idea that they’re still in it? Or will they finally wake up to reality so that next year isn’t a complete waste, too?
