Cincinnati Reds: First Place Reds win 8th straight

The Cincinnati Reds are on a roll as they defeated the Chicago Cubs last night for their 8th straight win moving them ½ game ahead of the St. Louis Cardinals in 1st place in the NL Central. But what is the biggest key for the Reds success this season? They’re taking advantage of the opportunities given to them. With superstars Albert Pujols (Cardinals), Derek Lee & Mark Prior (Cubs) and Roy Oswalt (Astros) all battling injuries and Roger Clemens (Astros) pitching in the minor leagues, the Reds are beating up on their NL Central foes. During the current 8-game winning streak the Reds have defeated the Cards and Astros 3 times each and the Cubs twice, and on the season Cincinnati is 25-12 against NL Central Division teams. As a result of their longest winning streak since 1999, the Reds have erased a 5-game deficit behind the Cardinals in a week’s time, and at 36-24 the Reds lead Houston by 6.5 games and the Cubs by 12.5 games.
