It has been 5 games since the All-Star Break and the Cincinnati Reds are still waiting for their first win of the second half of the season. The All-Star Break is the unofficial midway point of the season. The Reds have now lost 6 in a row and 7 of their last 8 games falling out of first and 2.5 games behind the now front running Brewers.

The Giants have now won 7 in a row after finishing Monday’s rain delayed game scoring a 4-2 win in extra innings. The Giants then won 11-10 in a slugfest that saw the Reds hit 4 homerun but could not break their losing streak. Their 6 game losing streak matches the longest of the season.

The Reds have 4 games left on their current 9 game home stand which they have failed to win a game so far. This is a far cry from their hot streak just prior to this losing streak. Cincinnati had won 15 of 16 games that gave them their short lived 1st place run. 

Cincinnati does have an extremely bright future with such players like Elly De La Cruz and new call up Christian Encarnacion-Strand. They follow young stars Matt McLain, Spencer Steer & Will Benson. Pitching hasn’t been horribly bad and with any young team like the Reds, you will have some ups and downs. No-one expected a 12 games winning streak just as no-one expected a 6 game losing streak. The question is, which side will this young Reds team end up on. Winning or losing.

Note: 12 teams on last nights schedule scored double digit runs in a game. This is the 2nd highest in League History. The last time it happened was 1894 when their were 24 games played. There were 15 games played last night. 

The Reds play the Giants again tonight as they try to break their 6 game losing streak.
