The 2023 Cincinnati Reds are no losers

Elly De La Cruz homered once, homered twice, and led the Cincinnati Reds to an 11-7 comeback victory over the Cleveland Guardians on Monday night, earning the club an 81st victory on the season that secures a non-losing record. Given that the club lost an epic 100 games during the 2022 regular season, that’s a pretty monumental step in the right direction for this club, even if what could have been is a question many of us will still ask for years upon this season’s completion.

Cincinnati fell behind early 3-0 as Hunter Greene struggled to put anyone away, and despite their fight back to claim a 4-3 lead just minutes after that initial hole, Greene served up enough batting practice to allow Cleveland to blast back into leads of 6-4 and 7-5 before the big Cincinnati bats put things away.
