Reds baseball game #15.

The last weekend of the Reds baseball season. We wanted to get in one more ballgame to make it 15 trips to Great American Ball Park for us this season. We were hanging out at Washington Park for the Pokopolis Pig & Whiskey festival before the game…

Then we walked across Race Street so Genifer could ride the streetcar CB Connector for the first time…

Here it comes…

Apparently, everyone downtown had the exact same idea as us. The Connector was stupid packed…

But we eventually made it to The Banks. We’re pretty sure we could have walked there quicker.

The Reds were playing the Cubs for this final series of the regular season. It was cool to get to see the Cubbies before they embark on their postseason run…

John Lester was on the hill for the Cubs…

Joey Votto’s had an extraordinary second half of the season

It’s ridiculous how good he’s been this year after a slow start. Bases were full of Reds…

Eugenio Suarez went yard

Plenty of seats were still available…

So not surprisingly, we were able to find that Chick-fil-a cow…

And Rosie Red…

Last ball park snacks of the season…

Now the bases were chuck full of Cubbies…

BARGE!

The Cubs brought in Aroldis Chapman to pitch the eighth inning…

With two outs in the eighth, it was Aroldis Chapman versus Joey Votto…

Raisel Iglesias came in to try to shut the door on the Cubs…

And this one belongs to the Reds!

It was a long, tough season for the Reds. But the second half showed a lot of promise and potential for what could be next season. I just know now that for the next couple of weeks I’ll look at the clock see that it’s around 7pm, go to turn on the Reds game and have to remind myself that the season’s over. There isn’t any more Reds baseball until next Spring. And for me, that’s always the hardest part. It’s not the fact that they didn’t do well this year. It’s the fact that their season is over, and I have to wait all winter until I can get to watch my Reds play baseball again. πŸ™‚
