Well, that sucked.
The offense continues to sputter, and the starting pitching continues to pitch not all that badly, but badly enough to lose with the lack of offense. Homer Bailey was the mediocre righty who would give us fits on this particular occasion.
Delgado pitched very well until the third time through the Reds’ batting order, in the sixth inning, when he loaded the bases before Medlen was brought in to give up a grand slam to effectively lose the game. Homers by Bourn and Francisco gave the Braves their runs. Prado continues to rake; Venters continues to look hurt.
Glad to be getting out of Cincy. Here’s hoping our best hitters get healthy and into the lineup sometime soon.
