I wasn’t scheduled to work any of the Reds-Giants series this week. I had just gotten out of a movie Tuesday evening when I happened to notice that Homer Bailey had a perfect game through six innings. When I got home, I said goodbye to my family and hopped in the car and started driving. I listened to the seventh inning on the radio when Bailey gave up the walk. I made it to Great American Ball Park in time for the top of the eighth.
And now I’ve seen him finish both of his no-hitters. Amazing. Jeremy Warnemuende had the main story and I provided a few sidebars. See below for some of our coverage or go to Reds.com or MLB.com for the rest.
