August 31, 2008


The Reds managed to sweep the worst team in the majors today when they beat the Giants 9-3.

It was a nice feeling, and it got me thinking about the last time Reds fans had gotten to enjoy that sensation, so I went to check out the record. I didn’t immediately find the last time they swept a series, but I did find a couple other interesting facts from this month:

  • The last series win: August 12-14 vs the Pirates
  • Series W-L record in August: 2-7, including being swept by the Nats and Astros (4 games)

In fact, the last time the Reds swept a series was before the All Star Break, when they swept a four-game series against the Nationals July 3-July 6.
