The Reds have the rare opportunity to go from first place to last place in the NL central in a period of just four days.

I was wrong. It took the Reds 5 days to go from first to last. 6 losses in a row. Poor defense and poor hitting always squanders decent starting pitching. The Reds with one more game in St. louis and three in LA to complete the road trip could be starring at 10 straight losses before return home. Still better than no baseball.

Poor Reds! I don't know what to think. Up then going down already. But, GO REDS! Hope they swing it back the other way quickly.

This coach is a trip !!!when you have a player batting 141 and that high in the lineup and won't make changes I question fire the coach.

A rare win over the Dodgers on the coast makes a body feel good.

You always have to be happy with a win that ends a losing streak, but the problems remain:

On only one effective starting pitcher to date (Mahle).

Only one effective relief pitcher to date (Antonne).

Poor defense.

Inconsistent hitting. The so called "power" part of the lineup batting collectively below the Mendoza line (Suarez,Votto)

Weak bench.

A manager who seems to make decisions based on analytics and a love of the double switches rather than the actual flow of a game.

A front office simply unwilling and/or incapable of addressing the team's needs at shortstop and in pitching.

In other words, the dear old Reds playing bad baseball but baseball no less with fans in the stands. What is not to like?

Agree. Good win for the Reds. They needed that to hopefully get things going in the right direction. GO REDS!!

Two out of three from the Cubbies. Home runs, good pitching once a week, and bench clearing brawls. What is not too like? They are 13-14 and 3.5 games behind Milwaukee, good for third place in the division. They are not contenders, but they are also not boring.

They are capable of 10 or more wins in a row as well as 10 straight losses. Plus anything in between. My biggest fear is the Reds ownership may conduct a fire sale of players come the trading deadline. Simply said they are cheap.

Shutout by the ChiSox 9-0.

As of 5-4-21, the Reds team ERA is 5.11, ranking them the 28th worst pitching staff in MLB.
