Game 104: at LA

*At 59-44, the Reds are a season-high 15 games over .500 for the third time this season.

*Todd Frazier is taking an eight-game hitting streak into Friday. He is 13-for-32 (.406) during the streak with six doubles. Frazier has hit safely in 17 of his last 19 games.

*The Reds have won six of their last 10 games vs. the Dodgers. Since Los Angeles swept all four three-game series at Dodger Stadium from 2006-09, the Reds have won two of the last three series at Chavez Ravine.

*In a non-Reds story, please check out MLB.com writer Doug Miller’s long-form piece on Dr. Frank Jobe — the man who invented Tommy John surgery. It’s really good. Click here to read.

Go Reds kick some dodger tail!

thanks for giving us the passwords to DodgersPressBox.com and to the wireless internet!

Mesoraco out; Heisey back in…revolving door continues.
From Cincinnati.com…
“PITCHING MATCHUP: Reds RH Homer Bailey (5-9, 3.84 ERA) vs. Dodgers LH Clayton Kershaw (9-6, 2.01)”
“Since tossing his second career no-hitter July 2, Bailey has surrendered 11 runs and 27 hits over 17 innings, leading to an 0-3 record and 5.82 ERA. The right-hander fanned a career-high 12 but took the loss in Sunday’s 3-2 setback to the Pittsburgh Pirates after giving up three runs and seven hits over 6 1/3 innings. Bailey is 2-7 with a 4.74 ERA away from home this season and 3-2 with a 4.54 ERA in six career outings against Los Angeles.”
“Kershaw won for the fourth time in five starts after yielding two runs and two hits – both on home runs from Jayson Werth – over seven frames during Sunday’s 9-2 victory over the Washington Nationals. The three-time All-Star, who leads the majors in ERA and ranks second in the NL with 148 strikeouts, has lasted at least six innings in 16 consecutive starts. In seven all-time starts against the Reds, Kershaw is 1-1 with a 3.15 ERA.”
Reds better bring their A-game tonight!

Cards are hitting .340 with runners in scoring position.
The Reds are hitting .256.

Is that you with a 28 streak in ‘beat the streak’? Nice.
