Season-high losing streak
All the details of how the Reds lost a crusher of a game to the Brewers by a 4-3 score will be on Reds.com/MLB.com. It means Cincinnati now has a season-high five-game losing streak and are 4 1/2 games out of first place.
Appearing to be seething, Reds manager Bryan Price summed it all up here.
“They don’t need a lecture from me about me being disappointed. We’re all disappointed,” Price said. “Nobody likes it. If you’ve watched our team in these five games, you’ve seen guys busting their tails down the line, putting in the work in pre-game and being invested in what we do to prepare. We just haven’t executed. We haven’t swung the bats well. We haven’t gotten the quality starts. In my opinion, quality starts aren’t six innings. Quality starts are seven innings and on. That’s how I see it. We haven’t played particularly good defense. We’ve missed some signs. We just haven’t played terribly well. We have to play a lot better than we have. We’re head-to-head with a team that’s ahead us. We’ve played hard. We just haven’t won.”
