Sixth Inning (Bottom)
Joey Votto loves the Cubs. He has 3 home runs today. Three! He’s not a power hitter. 0-9 Cubs when this inning ends. I just don’t know what to say about today. This is the kind of thing where you just say screw it, we’ll get them the next day and you move on. Sticking out there isn’t going to get you anywhere today. Let everyone get rested up. Spend some extra time in the batting cages, work on spotting your pitches, and definitely work on defense. I know that today hasn’t been a bad defensive outing, per say, but it has been a problem the Cubs have been facing the whole season. Today, the breaks just aren’t going the Cubs way. Can’t win them all. But you definitely should not lose this many to the Reds.
