Resilient Reds return home

Whenever we're about to read the last rites for this club, they somehow manage to pick themselves up off the mat.

Following a 2-8 homestand, their worst since 1950, the Reds responded by taking 2 of 4 from the first-place Mets in New York and 2 of 3 from the Indians at Jacobs Field.

The Reds currently lead the NL Wild Card race and are just two games behind the first-place Cardinals in the Central Division.

“I really don't think we're going to go away,” said manager Jerry Narron recently. “It’s a long season. You’re going to have a lot of ups and downs. We would like to be more consistent, no question about that.”

How 'bout a few more wins at home, skip?
