The Daily Brief: Latos’ curse of April is no more

Last Game
The Reds took the rubber game in the series with the Pirates to the tun of 5-0. Mat Latos was starting, so it’s little wonder he put in a shut-out performance. I mean, everyone’s been saying he sucks in April, and the calendar page has flipped. The curse is lifted for another year.

Next Game
The Reds go visit the Milwaukee Brewers. Thanks to this hot streak, the Reds roll in to town with a 14-13 record and 2.5 games back compared to the Brewers’ 12-16 fourth place situation. Bronson Arroyo (1-1 3.03 ERA) takes on Yovani Gallardo (1/3 5.79 ERA) for the first game of the series. Tune in at 8:10 for the action.

Did you know…?
The first practical typewriters was designed in Milwaukee in 1867, just 103 years before the Brewers played their first game.

What to Say to Sound Smart at the Water Cooler
The Reds are now 5-0 this season in games played on Sunday.
