Game 144 (Cincinnati v Los Angeles)

How about these Red legs? This weekend has been special for Reds fans that have attended the games, with the Great 8 reuniting for Joe Morgan weekend. No need to explain yesterday’s game, both the Reds and Dodgers put their aces, Mat Latos and Zack Grienke in the game, both end up not getting a decision, but it was the Reds cheetah, Billy Hamilton, that made the difference. Billy has been a difference maker for the Reds, with the Reds going 5-1 in uniform. Thoughts from Hamilton, Frazier, who drive in Hamilton, and Latos.

Things to Consider

  • It’s National Television for the second straight day
  • Kershaw and Bailey meet for the third straight time (see Game Preview)
  • Kershaw barely gives runs, so Reds need to work pitch count
  • Bailey and GABP? It’s a love relationship and it seems to last. Hope to see it again today.
