Pitching lines for Reds starters during this weekend's series against the Phillies at Great American Ball Park:
Friday: Elizardo Ramirez 6 IP 3R 7H 3BB 7K
Saturday: Dave Williams 8 1/3 IP 2R 5H 0BB 5K.
Sunday: Brandon Claussen 8 IP 1R 4H 1BB 7K.
The Reds lost all three.
Entering today's action, Reds starters had produced a 2.90 ERA in their past 19 starts but went just 9-7 in those games.
The Reds have lost 4 of the past 7 games when their starting pitcher has produced a quality start.
Meanwhile, manager Jerry Narron says his club is most successful when they aren't waiting for someone to hit a home run.
Isn't that just what the Reds were doing the past three days?
