Reds baseball game #2.

Looking out our window a few hours before game time, it looked like it was going to be a really nice day. The sun was out. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky. And there wasn’t any wind. The wind’s been the kicker this week. After we walked Oscar, we decided to head down to the ballpark to take in our second Reds game of the season. We just got some walk-up tickets from the box office. When Genifer went to pay for the tickets with her PNC Reds debit card, our $14 tickets instantly became $6 tickets. Who knew that our PNC Reds cards got us discounted tickets Sunday through Thursday at the GABP? So that was pretty awesome. And we were so impressed that I forgot to take a photo of the front of the ballpark. I must be rusty and out of practice.

We decided to watch the start of the game from under the PNC Power Stacks…

I never did figure out why all the mascots started the game in bib overalls…

Tim Melville was making his Major League debut today…

We moved upstairs to our normal Reds habitat, upper deck down the third base line…

And that was about the last time we saw the sun…

They’re doing Strikeouts for Slices again this season! HOORAY!

The first live Sunday Reds Mascot Race of the season. This one belonged to Mr. Red…

We had our first under review play of the season…

And they got it right on the field, he was out at home…

The sun completely disappeared on us and the wind picked up. So we ended up watching most of the game from the relative warmth of the Cincinnati Bell FiOptics Gigabar out in the left field corner of the view level.

Tim Melville went 4 innings giving up five hits and a run in his debut. Eugenio Suarez crushed his fourth home run of the season. And the Reds won on a Jay Bruuuuuce walk-off triple score BP all the way from first base

Two games. Two walk-off wins! Another chilly but great day at the ballpark! Who would have thought the Reds would start the season 5-1? ⚾ 🙂
