The Cincinnati Reds Report

by Bill Chuck on September 26, 2013

If the Cincinnati Reds want to host the NL Wild Card play-in game, they are going to have plays a hell of lot better than they did against Daisuke Matsuzaka and the New York Mets.

Dice-K won his third consecutive start and the Mets topped Mat Latos and the Reds, 1-0, enabling the New Yorkers to take two-of-three from the Reds in Cincy.

With the loss, the Reds were mathematically eliminated from winning the division title.
