Phillies sweep; Reds awful: Reds report 4-14

Actually, I'm not sure that Philly won-- but they were ahead 2-7 in the bottom
of the eighth. I was going to post the box score but since Cinci was playing
so criminally bad, the pub I was at had to turn the game off.

So here's what's up:

Cincinnati had seven hits, all singles, by the end of the eighth.  This makes
it six games with exactly ONE extra base hit.

Cincinnati was 0-5 with runners in scoring position.  
---Now if a team is going to be completely without power, they absolutely
HAVE to hit in clutch situations.

Cincinnati starter Tom Browning pitched 4.1 innings, giving up 5 runs and 10 hits
while striking out 5.  He was surely the loser tonight.
---Reds starters, while supposedly solid, have won only one game this year.
(Of course, the Reds have only won two...)

Clean-up batter Sabo went 0-4.  Besides yesterday's homer, he's SUCKED at the plate.

Dibble may not actually return Friday. This may not mean anything since Cinci may
not find themselves in a save situation for a while...

Speaking of which, The Reds have ha exactly one lead this week... for one-and-
a-half innings after Chris' dinger on Tuesday.

Manager Tony Perez says the Reds are just not swinging the bat well right now.
---Good call, Doggie.

Cynically yours,

RStimets

Well, there's a big difference between "just not swinging the bat well" and
what the Reds are doing at the plate....UUUGGGHHHH!!!!!
