Final: Phillies 8 Reds 0 Boxscore
*The Reds got rolled in front of 38,331 fans. Bob Castellini must be seething.
*I get a feeling something is about to happen.
*Cueto wasn't Cueto. Hamels was just like Hamels always is vs the Reds.
*Cueto rolled into the 4th inning, then unraveled. 5 innings his shortest outing of the season: 5 IN, 6 H, 1 BB, 2 HBP, HR, 5 K.
*3 straight losses, now 27-32 overall.
*Reds now 17-17 vs losing teams this season.
*14th time scoring 1 run or less, 7th time shutout.
*Reds have not scored in 17 innings.
*Zack Cozart singled to break a streak of 25 straight Reds retired, going back to Thur.
*Add 8 more K and just 2 walks to the Reds hitter tote board.
*Reds hitters 16 BB/132 K last 14 games....Votto had walked 12 times in 14 games before going on DL.
*Go figure: Cozart had 2 of the Reds 5 hits.

*Listeners tell me anyone can play 1B. Todd Frazier another error at 1B. That's 3 errors in 3 starts at 1B.
*Reds run differential now -20 for season.
*2 runs remains the largest deficit Reds have overcome this season.
"And if you think Joey Votto is going to fix this, that is not fair. There are too many guys not getting their job done,"-Marty #Reds— Lance McAlister (@LanceMcAlister) June 7, 2014
Enquirer: Latos miffed over having to make another rehab start
If point of rehab start was to throw 100 pitches, and he threw 67, and cramped up, then the goal was not reached. Do it again. #Reds— Lance McAlister (@LanceMcAlister) June 6, 2014
