*Johnny was brilliant, again, back to back complete games.
*Nice duel with Edinson Volquez, scoreless in the 7th.
*Wonder if Cueto said to Pirates fans….”say my name…..again. #Heisenberg.
*Cueto’s scoreless streak ended at career-best 21 innings thanks to McCutchen’s homer in 9th. Cueto got 16 outs on ground outs.
*Cueto 1st Reds pitcher to throw 1,000 career innings while pitching for the Reds since Tom Browning....43rd overall in franchise history.
*Cueto was attempting to become first Reds pitcher to throw consecutive complete game shutouts since Tom Seaver (1977).
*How about the tag team of Cueto and Brayan Pena?
*Twitter freaked over Price giving Mesoraco a day off. Pena 2-4, RBI, R. CG behind plate.
*T7th: Bruce and Frazier back-to-back 1B, Pena RBI 2B that became a single and out after challenged by Clint Hurdle....1-0.
*Bruce is on a roll.
*My guy, Zack Cozart with an RBI double? 2-0.
*Cueto RBI single
*So, I thought the idea for replay was to get calls right?
*Billy Hamilton’s 1st 2 hit game of his career. He’d had four games with 3 hits and eight games with 1 hit.
*Reds go for third straight series win today. Have won 6 of 9 and stand 9-11 through 20 games....survive....tread water.
Also, #Reds have now scored 4+ in 9 straight games. Most since they did it in 18 straight in 2007 (which is team's longest since 1914).— Joel Luckhaupt (@jluckhaupt) April 23, 2014
