Tonight the Reds had some catharsis for their crappy season’s worth of pent up frustration. The box score of their 13-1 win over the San Diego Padres featured a lengthy list in the home runs:
- Votto (19, 1st inning off Stauffer, 0 on, 2 out),
- Cairo 2 (7, 1st inning off Stauffer, 1 on, 2 out; 5th inning off Bass, 1 on, 0 out),
- Frazier (4, 2nd inning off Stauffer, 0 on, 0 out),
- Bruce (25, 3rd inning off Stauffer, 1 on, 1 out),
- Hanigan 2 (5, 3rd inning off Stauffer, 2 on, 2 out; 8th inning off Thatcher, 1 on, 1 out)
Amazingly, tonight’s win brings the Reds’ winning streak to four, which is the longest winning streak since May 17. Can they make it five? We find out tomorrow when they wrap up the series against the Padres at 1:10 p.m.
