Game 32 (Cincinnati Reds vs. Boston Red Sox)

BOSTON RED SOX-CINCINNATI REDSThere is one person to thank in scheduling this series, the MLB. Now that both the American and National Leagues are even at 15, more rare matchups are coming and that is something that every MLB fan wants to see. How rare is this matchup? Very Rare. The Red Sox and Reds met in the 1975 World Series, 2005 season and 2008 seasons. These games are rare, but in today’s game, rarity won’t happen again. One thing I like the MLB doing is bringing old school matchups and by doing that with Two 2 game series, home and home series to be exact.

Nonetheless, I have lots of excitement for this series and the one being played in Cincinnati because I’m native to New England and reside in Cincinnati. Majority of my family lives in New England and roots for Boston sports. I try to stay in touch with what the Boston Red Sox do in their season and hope for success, which did happen in 2013.
