San Francisco Bay Blues
Edinson Volquez was all kinds of nasty last night. And by nasty I mean sucky. My phone was blowing up last night with ESPN Alerts — for all the wrong reasons (much like it was when Cueto last pitched).
39 pitches, 5 hits, 5 ERs, 3 BBs, 0.2 inning
It doesn’t get much uglier than that, folks.
Not that it mattered, but Logan Ondrusek didn’t help much either (1.0 inning, 4 ERs).
This Reds team is good, but not good enough to continually overcome large deficits early in the game. Especially against teams like the Giants. It’s games like last night that make me grateful the Reds were able to build up a sizable lead in the NL Central last week.
By the way, that sizable lead the Reds had has already been cut in half.
