It has been six games since the All-Star break and the Cincinnati Reds are still staring at the same amount of victories that they had prior to the Midsummer Classic. It has been six games, and six consecutive losses for the Reds, who now stand five and a half games out of first after falling to the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1 Wednesday afternoon at Miller Park.
"Anybody that watches our six games on this road trip would understand we're not playing as we were leading into the break," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "We're not scoring a lot of runs. We're not getting terribly efficient starting pitching. And we know we're a better club than we've represented in the last six games."
"Offensively, we averaged two runs a game. That's not going to cut it," third baseman Todd Frazier said.
"They hit a few balls hard and a few balls that weren't hard that found holes," said Leake who pitched six innings allowing 11 hits. "Really, the Weeks double and Reynolds home run were the two I would like to take back. I still felt like I threw the ball pretty decent. Unfortunate stuff, and I missed a couple of spots."
"I think a day off is good," Frazier said.
