They cant beat LA it looks like they may sweep Cincinnati....I said they be 10 out by the all star break they end up 15 or 20 out by the end of the season they need a big bat in the line up, I know there a small market team but their going to have to spend a little money to win and make money.
Votto quite swing the bat and Bailey is way over paid, they have not spent their money wise and hired a no name manager, we can say injuries all we want but that why they pay other players to pick up the slack....
Well the Reds win the first one and pick up one game on Milwaukee. I wasn't sure we were going to in the 7th inning when Milwaukee scored 4 runs but Hamilton hit a single in the 9th to bring in what proved to be the winning run.
Cincinnati 6, Milwaukee 5

St.Louis and Pittsburg won so no gain on them.

Latos is back and pitched well! 6 innings with 2 hits, 0 runs or walks and 4 strikeouts.
Here's the bad news. We lost anyway while Milwaukee, St.Louis and Pittsburg all won
Milwaukee 4, Cincinnati 2
Leaving the Brewers in 1st place 4 1/2 games ahead of St.Louis. Pittsburg 6 1/2 back and Reds 8 back. The Reds really need to win tomorrow or we'll be 9 games back. With a win we at least pick up one game out of the series and are 7 games back.
Votto and Latos are back. Really can't blame injuries that much going forward.
That was just sad. Broxton and Chapman both had bad games. Broxton pitched bad Thursday night too. They may be tired which isn't good with Reds playing 16 days in a row starting this past Tuesday.
Blue Jays overcome 8-run deficit, beat Reds 14-9 By JOE KAY (AP Baseball Writer)8 minutes agoAP - Sports Exchange
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Edwin Encarnacion started Toronto's big comeback with a three-run homer. Many hours and momentum shifts later, he finished it with yet another.
With those two bookend swings, he played the role of comeback kid.
Encarnacion's set of three-run homers helped the Blue Jays pull off the second-biggest comeback in their history Friday night, rallying from an early eight-run deficit to a 14-9 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.
''That kind of thing happens,'' Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. ''But I can't remember one like this - not at this level.''
Toronto hit four homers during its comeback. Encarnacion started it by connecting in the third inning off Mat Latos and finished it with his 23rd homer off Sam LeCure during a five-run ninth inning.
''After the (first) three-run homer, we got the emotion back,'' said Encarnacion, who set a career high with his six RBIs. ''We were feeling like we could come back after that.''
Brett Lawrie and Juan Francisco also homered for Toronto, which piled up 16 hits and nine walks.
Toronto overcame a 10-run deficit to beat Boston 13-11 in 12 innings in 1989.
With the score tied at 9, Aroldis Chapman (0-2) came on to pitch the ninth and walked leadoff hitter Colby Rasmus. Erik Kratz doubled off the wall in left field to break the tie, and then came around on Melky Cabrera's single.
Chapman was replaced after getting only two outs. Encarnacion completed the big comeback and his sixth multihomer game of the season.
''You may never see another one like that,'' Gibbons said.
Dustin McGowan (4-2) pitched a perfect eighth. Casey Janssen retired the three batters he faced in the ninth for his 13th save in 15 chances.
The comeback boosted the Blue Jays out of a recent funk. They were swept for the first time this season at Yankee Stadium and had dropped nine of their last 12.
The Reds' pitching meltdown wasted a chance to get back to .500 for the fourth time this season. Cincinnati has yet to have a winning record.
It was the first time the Reds blew an eight-run lead and lost since May 20, 2010, at Atlanta, a 10-9 defeat. The Reds gave up a season-high nine walks.
''I don't know what it is,'' manager Bryan Price said. ''Fortunately, it's only one loss. It's an ugly type of loss. It's the type of loss that affects everybody.''
Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Liam Hendriks throws against the Cincinnati Reds in the first inn …
The Blue Jays called up Liam Hendriks to start in place of R.A. Dickey, getting two extra days to rest a sore groin. The Reds knocked him out in the second inning while sending 11 batters to the plate for an 8-0 lead, their biggest inning of the season.
Devin Mesoraco started the rally with a two-run homer and Jay Bruce finished it with a two-run shot. Bruce also singled as the Reds piled up seven hits and a walk.
Hendriks was in the dugout watching one of the major leagues' most powerful offenses pull off one of its biggest comebacks.
''It was incredible,'' Hendriks said. ''This offense is fantastic. This ballpark plays up to our strengths.''
Latos made his second start since returning from the disabled list and wasn't sharp. He gave up nine hits, three walks and Encarnacion's homer during 5 2-3 innings.
Reliever Jumbo Diaz made his major league debut in the seventh and gave up Lawrie's solo homer and Francisco's two-run shot, cutting it to 9-8. Toronto then tied it in the eighth on Dioner Navarro's double off Jonathan Broxton.
NOTES: LHP J.A. Happ (6-3) faces RHP Mike Leake (4-6) on Saturday. Leake lost his only other career start against the Blue Jays in 2011. ... The Blue Jays optioned RHP Steve Delabar to Triple-A Buffalo to open a spot for Hendriks. ... Encarnacion has 21 homers during 42 games since May 6, the most in the majors over that span. ... The Reds optioned LHP Tony Cingrani to Triple-A Louisville and called up Diaz. They also moved LHP Sean Marshall to the 60-day DL. Marshall will have shoulder surgery on Tuesday.
This is not what you want to see if your a Reds fan scoreing 9 runs is a lot with this line up.. Not having any pitching dont help when scoreing 5 or 6 runs is a lot. I said this team will be 10 games out by the allstar break and I say finish 15 to 20 out by years end. No pitching no middle relievers or not a good closer. Maybe they should pitch Bailey more bring him in since hes got all the money and votto is overpaid too.
