Game 145: the streak lives

Scout made it last night to keep his streak alive (and even made the jumbotron). Unfortunately, he didn't help the Reds who fell prey to a great pitching performance by Daniel Hudson of the D'Backs. The Reds got to the bullpen in the 9th, but only for one run. Hernandez hit a gapper with two out and the bases loaded (no question Stubbs would have scored from first) but Justin Upton made a nice play to track it down and end the game. Hernandez hit it about as hard as he could have on a line, but to no avail.

But the Cards lost too, so the magic number is 12. Look for the Reds to clinch on the 28th.

Want to revise your clinching date after tonight's game?

Reds face a rough road trip, so I'll stick with the 28th and just hope it happens sooner.

Great seeing you at the game Marti.
