Johnny Cueto pitched 7.1 shutout innings, the offense was able to string together hits and runs, and the bullpen finished things off in a 5-0 win.
Notes
*Cueto: 7.1, 5 H, 1 BB, 7 K, 0 R...made it look easy
*5 runs, 11 hits from the offense....8 different players had at least a hit
*First time in 35 games Reds have score 5+ in back to back games (April 20, 21: 8, 5)
(Thanks listener Bradley Brown)
*A chance to end trip with a 3 game win streak (would tie season high).
*My word of Thursday night: Sustainability.
*25-29 overall, 3.5 out of Wild Card, 7 back of Milwaukee
*Loved the 4th inning:
They put together 5 hits and 3 runs...and kept the line moving:
Billy Hamilton line a single the other way
Schumaker hit a bouncer through the right side
Brandon Phillips lined an RBI single up the middle, 1-0 Reds
Todd Frazier lined an RBI single up the middle, 2-0 Reds
Brayan Pena roped an RBI double to the gap, 3-0 Reds

Add on baseball + 3 more hits and 2 more runs:
Hamilton bunt, SB
Schumaker looped on for an RBI 1B, 4-0
Phillips crushed an RBI double to wall, 5-0
Bullpen
Parra allowed hit in 8th....not getting much done
Broxton did it again: K Paul Goldschmidt and popped up Montero with bases loaded.
