We Are at the Mercy of the Cincinnati Reds

If you're decided whether or not to watch a Brewers/Reds game or partake in other plans, unless your other plans are completely terrible you may want to avoid the baseball game. The exception would be if you are a Reds fan, because this series has been about as lopsided as it gets. In their last 21 games, the Reds have beaten the Brewers 18 times. The way things went on Monday night, it's beginning to seem like things are only going to get worse.

The Brewers did get some offense in during this 9-5 loss, but ultimately the damage that Chris Narveson did was such that Milwaukee could never recover. Narvdog only lasted 2 1/3 innings in this outing, his first rough start of the season, and by far the worst start from a Brewer in 2011. In his time, he gave up seven runs on eight hits, and put the game out of reach very early for the Crew. Over the course of 162 games, you're bound to lose a few like this - it's just getting frustrating that it seems to happen everytime we play the Reds.

Also, Casey McGehee sprained his thumb on the final out of the game. Lame.

POTG: Let's go off the beaten path and give it to Brandon Kintzler. He came in, pitched 2 2/3 innings, and kept the Reds off the board to at least give the Brewers a chance to get back in this thing. He earned five K's along the way as well. Runner up awards go to Zach Braddock, who also pitched well in relief, and Ryan Braun, who homered again.

Another tough loss
As Uncle Jessie would say
Please Reds, "Have Mercy"
