The Daily Brief: Reds Fail Joey Votto

Last Game
That was painful, wasn’t it? So painful, it’s hard to write about. It was only one game and one loss, but it sure did feel like the end of the season right there. We’ll see if the team can rebound from the devastation in Atlanta. Given that there were 4 errors yesterday (and there easily could have been more), some fielding practice might not be the worst idea in the world. We’ll see if Dusty Baker has figured out how to make his players practice yet.

Next Game
The Reds travel to Cleveland for the Ohio Cup and to start interleague play. Interleague has always been a struggle for the Reds in the past, and with the sweep by the Braves, the team isn’t exactly primed to win. Bronson Arroyo takes on Jake Westbrook at 7:05pm EDT.

What to Say to Sound Smart at the Water Cooler
In the 13 years of interleague play, the Reds have had a winning record against the American League just 3 times.
