Reds pitcher Sonny Gray just set a new MLB record with 32 consecutive starts allowing no more than 6 hits. Nolan Ryan had the old record.

Brewers have won 4 in a row and 11 of their last 12. They are now tied with the Cubs for 2nd place and only trail 1st place St Louis by 2 games.

The Reds completed their total dominance over the Cubs this season with a win last night, finishing with a record of 11-8 over Chicago. No playoffs for the most annoying team in baseball.

You're welcome.

Oh...And Eugenio Suarez hit another bomb last night. That's 48. Passing Andres Galarraga for the most in a season by a Venezuelan-born player.

The Yankees clinched their 19th AL East title tonight with their 100th win of the season.

Aaron Boone also became the first coach in MLB history to win 100+ games in each of his first two seasons.

Not the first time that's happened. Those bases get slick as shit.
Yeah, agree, but it’s part of the game

Should they stop play on every moment it becomes wet?

They fucking spray the motherfucking dirt in the 7th iirc from all the times I remember

They spray and regrade the dirt. Not the bases. You would think MLB could come up with a base that reacts better to spikes when it gets wet.

Some 1st basemen are known to scuff the fuck out of 1st base before the game starts just in case.

You saying that no water gets on the bases during a “spray and regrade” of dirt that is on the same dirt that as the base?

No.
I'm saying a base is slick when you are wearing cleats.
And it's like ice when it gets wet.

Harper did the same thing last year.

Today is the last game for Cincinnati Reds play by play radio broadcaster Marty Brennaman. He's been their play by play guy since he took over for Al Michaels in 1974. The first inning he ever called was when Hank Aaron broke Babe Ruth's HR record, just to give you an idea for how long he's been around.

I've always been a huge baseball fan, and when I was a kid I'd listen to every Reds game. The games were rarely on TV back then, so the radio was the only way to follow the game. I still remember getting yelled at by my mom because I was laying in bed listening to the games after midnight on a school night. Even later when they played on the west coast.

His broadcasting partner was Joe Nuxhall for most of his career. Marty & Joe - that's all I've ever known.

Joe died in 2007, and when he did I felt like my grandpa died. And I'm being serious. I was gutted. And as I sit here and listen to the last couple innings that I will ever hear Marty announce? It's getting a little dusty in here.

He is the voice of Reds baseball and an era is coming to an end. The 9th inning and his final sign off is going to be tough.
