Let’s go West. The Cincinnati packed their bags and headed out west, even if they arrived to Los Angeles at 2:30 A.M. local time. The Reds played three in LA and managed to salvage a game against dominant ace Clayton Kershaw. Following that game, they went to Pheonix, Arizona to play the Diamondbacks. The Reds were shutout in a game that Josh Collmenter pitched in, it was a complete game that faced the minimum of 27 batters. Following that shutout, the Reds went on to win the next three to take a 4-3 roadtrip.
