The Braves were in the NL west basement in 1989

Throwback snippet since 6/8/1989 was a thursday we go ten years ahead where the times ,the stadium

“>

 

the energy ,

the play on the field , and the standings changed

beat the streak picks

Matt Kemp “pinch hitting “for 1989 braves  avg leader Lonnie smith and Brandon philips “pinchhitting” for the two 1999 Brave raw number avg leaders he has something in common with ,  both got hits,and our streak has grown to 4

wed wrapup

well while  Scooter did not have a 4 homer game tonight he did get a hit to extend my streak to 2 and  “Old man pitcherrr ” Bronson Arroyo kept rolling along gave us 5.2 ins and walked that tightrope again but kept the queen city boys in it until the Scott Schebler (league leading 17th homer),Patrick Kivlehan (hit number 4 ) , and Joey Votto ( hit number 15 ) lead offsense could out soar the redbirds. Wandy Peralta got the win (2-1) Raisel Iglesias shut the door on his 11th save

Where the Reds stand :3rd place 3 gb of the nl central leading brewers

Way out wed 6/7/2017 Reds Cards should fear the Muppet

Scooter Gennett had a night that no  Reds player  not Frank Robinson not my first baseball hero Johnny Bench

not  Tonny Perez

not George Foster

not Eric Davis

not Adam Dunn

Not even Joey Votto

have hit 4 homers in a game not until Scooter Gennett went 5 for 5 with one of every  run amount of homer you have starting with a papaslam use that promo code to get 40% of your papajohns.com orders 6/7/2017, a 2 run shot, a solo shot, and a 3 run shot  leading to 9 of his club record tying 10 rbi  he got his first hit an rbi single to break him out of 0 for 19 slump. The only way Scooter night could have gotten any  more historic was for that single to be an inside the park home run.

 

and just think cards fans if Your  manager had not taken an out and a run off the board  by winning the challenge and a chance at an unknown outcome( note to managers you should only use replay when both outcomes are set in stone never ever take the unknown over a known outcame ) the  guy who took his nickname  from a character on the

he watch growing up he may have never hit his slam or his stride.

Another amazing thing is scooter was born in cincy (holloywood calling) and the Reds picked him up off the scrap heep when the Brewers release him for some crazy reason he wore his wellcome up there after putting up solid but not eye popping stats.

Tonight at 7:10 edt will see what scooter can do for an encore if Price is smart to put him in lineup since he owns Cards sp Lance Lynn ( to the tune of .367 lifetime of him)

Where the birds faced the Pirates .

How many times have the Pirates and the O’s met in the world series?

2 1971, 1979 both  Pirates win

but the flock got a walk off come back extra inninigs win backed by homers from a 2008 pcl all star, a guy who got a relief win in 2012, and 2 by a 2012 afl rising star.

Kevin Gausman started with 6.2 innings with a 2016 al all star   getting the win in relief

a son of a former pirate was my beat the streak pick but he did not  play so streak stays  at 1
