Cutch has not been Cutch lately that's for sure.

I see how the Reds have been winning so many games lately. Holy smokes. Great play by Cairo.

Yep. They play solid defense and get big hits. Good formula.

Hughes should have tagged him in the teeth there.

Now the Cincinnati broadcasters are giving it to Hughes for the confrontation with Navarro. Sheesh.

9th inning...down one run. The best closer in baseball.

This has a chance to be an epic, season changing win. Or, this could be a heart-breaking loss to drop us even farther from first. This should be both chippy and interesting...

In fairness, I would too if an opponent did that to one of my players. That being said...I loved it.

Once again, why is Jason Grilli not pitching in the eighth in a close game when they aren't in the lead. Clint Hurdle has been great this season with the exception of handling his bullpen when tied or trailing.

Almost tempted to put this one in the "what's the use?" category. But at least this was the best McDonald has looked in a while. Maybe that's a good sign. It would be nice, though, if McCutchen and Alvarez would start producing again. When they don't there still ain't enough else offensively.

Umm, Hurdle wasn't in the game.

I was at this game and I have to say I'm surprised by all of the negativity I've read on the various fan sites about it. Yes, it was a loss, but it was a very good back and fourth game, the type you'd anticipate of a series of this caliber.

What absolutely flabbergasts me, however, is how the shove Hughes gave to the Reds player on the grounder in the 8th didn't cause the tensions to finally boil over. I thought it looked blatant and nasty from my nosebleed seats, and now watching the clip, it's pretty amazing that there didn't seem to be much of a reaction. Maybe it was because the game was almost over, but wow, Hughes taking the frustration into his own hands there.

And yeah, can't say I really see any logic in Grilli not pitching that inning.

You aren't upset by the fact that they hit us clearly again for the 2nd time and our manager gets run for protesting. That doesn't surprise you. Only our reliever FINALLY showing some set of balls...that's what surprises you? Mind boggling.

Well, it was Bannister's decision, not Hurdle, right?

It's understood in MLB games that the manager just relays his intentions up the hall. It's sort of a joke when a manager gets thrown. He calls all the shots regardless.

I know it happens. But the announcers said tonight that is not the way Hurdle does it. They said he goes into the clubhouse and lets Bannister manage his way. I heard Hurdle say something to this effect last year during an interview too.

They would never admit in an interview that they control the action. That would violate MLB rules. It's automatic.
