Ohio Baseball Update: Reds surge, Indians stumble

The weekend was a great one for one Ohio Major League Baseball team and a not-so-great one for the other. While the Cincinnati Reds were coming off a 2-1 series loss in Chicago to the Cubs, they didn’t seem to let that bother them as the slugged their way to a 3-game series sweep in Houston. The sweep of the Astros marked the first 3+ game series sweep by the Reds in Houston since they swept the Astros in 4 games during the 1999 season. Meanwhile, the Cleveland Indians were unable to capitalize on their momentum from their 3-1 series win over the Chicago White Sox as they dropped 2 of 3 games to the team with the dumbest name in the history of professional sports, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The entire 3-game series was a slugfest seeing the Indians lose game 1 by a score of 10-3, winning game 2 by a score of 14-2 and losing game 3 by a score of 14-2.

The Reds begin a 3-game series in St. Louis to face the Cardinals who lost superstar 1B Albert Pujols on Saturday to the DL. The Reds are now 32-24 and in 2nd place in the NL Central trailing the Cardinals by 3 games. Meanwhile, the Indians remain in 3rd place in the AL Central at 28-28 trailing the Detroit Tigers by 8.5 games and the Chicago White Sox by 6 games. The Indians begin a 3-game series at home against the Oakland A’s on Tuesday before a 3-game series at the Chicago White Sox which begins on Friday.
