Reds sweep Giants, remember what fun is

Johnny Cueto, heck yeah!Three wins in a row and all over the NLW-leading San Francisco Giants. Wheeee!

Everyone was having a good day, including:

  • Johnny Cueto who not only threw a three-hit, shut-out complete game, but also go himself enough innings in the course of doing so to make himself eligible to be the league-leader in ERA, which he won by about a half run.
  • Joey Votto, who has gone 10-for-his-last-25 and had four RBI today alone.
  • Drew Stubbs, who not only went 4-for-5 today, but who also didn’t have to watch his team trade for Hunter Pence OR Michael Borne.

Yeah, it’s getting awfully late in the season for the Reds to bounce back from 6.5 back, and they pretty much failed to make the situation any better before the non-waiver trade deadline, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a good time to play out the season, and today was a good time.
