Adrenaline Nightshift

The only thing sweeter than sweeping the hated St. Louis Cardinals is how the Reds went about disposing of them.

Friday night, the Reds were down 3-0 heading into the 7th when they decided to stage a late comeback. Saturday, a former Cardinals favorite (Ryan Ludwick) hit a walk-off homer in the bottom of the 10th to win it. Then tonight, another former Cardinals favorite (Scott Rolen) hit a two-run double in the bottom of the 8th to win it. And it couldn’t happen against a bigger bunch of ass-hats.

P.S. (Post-Somersault) Aroldis Chapman was especially silly in this series. He faced 9 batters and struck out 8 of them. That’s the kind of thing that makes the boss take notice come annual-review time.

In unrelated news, Johnny Cueto chose not to pitch today because Tony La Russa once said pitchers that take the mound on Sunday don’t get chosen for the All-Star Game. Good for him. Homer Bailey did an outstanding job stepping in for him today.

To top things off, the Reds are back where they belong–first place in the division, all by themselves.

Now let’s not lay an egg during the Diamondbacks series. Those dudes just got swept by the Cubs.

Yes, those Cubs.

    Is that true about Cueto?? They said here he had a blister…which seemed odd to me at this point in the season. hahahahha
