Despite having won nine straight entering their game against the Colorado Rockies, the Cincinnati Reds seem to be be falling below the radar. After a dominant 7-2 victory, which extended their wining streak to ten, it may be hard to continue to ignore the Reds.
After allowing two runs in the first inning, Mat Latos was completely dominant on the mound for Cincinnati, pitching eight innings to improve his record to 9-3. Josh Rutledge drove in the only runs of the game for Colorado, as his two-run homer in the 1st inning was all the offense the Rockies could generate.
Jonathan Sanchez struggled once again, giving up six earned runs in another loss. Jay Bruce hit his 20th homer of the season, while Drew Stubbs also went deep off of Sanchez.
