Another 1-0 game?
Deja Vu all over again.  Well sort of.

Reds offense did not show up to the postseason. They wasted a dominant Trevor Bauer performance in Game 1.

As I noted yesterday, the Reds were 15th of 15 teams in batting average this season, so their offense never showed up. The only real question was whether they could do something against the Braves' mediocre pitching.

Now this is deja vu. A close game, then the Braves hit two two-run homers off your reliever.

Dane Dunning was pulled after 0.2 innings after allowing runners at first and third with 2 outs. Talk about a short leash.

This game is bonkers.  Five pitchers by the end of the 2nd with 1 run, PR in the 3rd...

ESPN put a live mic on the Oakland CF and on the first batter of the inning we got to hear him cuss on live national TV.

He's a character.  I was in the building for his first major league hit, which was a walkoff off the wall.  The Coliseum not being the loudest place, you could hear the celebration post-roar pretty clearly.  NSFW, mix of languages, but NSFW.

Apparently not injured. Gave up 2 hard hit balls in the first inning and that's apparently not good enough for an elimination game.

Rosenthal melting down, but manages to hold it together enough to get the save.

I tuned out the game early, partly because of the quick Cards lead, but mainly because Sutcliffe just wouldn't ever shut up. I guess I missed a hell of a comeback by Fernando and Manny and Wil.

Both Sixto Sánchez and Yu Darvish looking strong early. Having written that, I'm sure I jinxed them.

Darkish should have cornered the market on shampoo commercials.
