I love living in this area (at least during the baseball season)
Opening Day is an event in Cincinnati, and baseball season makes this area livable. I can’t stand the wintery weather, the slush and snow and ice, but April through October makes November through March worth it.
Johnny Cueto was stellar for the Redlegs today, striking out ten batters, including his 1000th career K. Jay Bruce launched a solo home run, and Todd Frazier drilled a three-run shot in the eighth. Aroldis Chapman shut down the Pirates in the ninth inning. All in all, this was almost a perfect Opening Day. Rain delayed the game between the sixth and seventh innings for a little while, and Kevin Gregg was almost the goat giving up a two-run dinger to Andrew McCutchen. Seriously, why do the Reds always have a guy in the bullpen that can’t get out of an inning?
Thanks to my friend Travis for thinking of me when he had an extra ticket. I LOVE BASEBALL!!!
