Reds one win away from best start since 1990
Question of the Day
“Ever since the walk-off home run, the momentum has been in our favor,” said catcher Ryan Hanigan, who had a pair of homers on Sunday. “I think we rode that in the last two games. Once we got rolling, we kept pressing. We know this team is capable of scoring five or six runs in a hurry.”
The third game showed them at their best, piling up 19 hits _ the most they had in any game last season _ and four homers. Twelve different players had at least one hit.
“Everybody contributed,” manager Dusty Baker said. “It can be contagious. It was just a big weekend, and to go 3-0 against a team you know is going to be there at the end is big. But there’s still a long way to go.”
The Reds have a favorable schedule as they wait for Cueto and Bailey to get back. They have six games against Arizona, four against Pittsburgh, three against Houston and three against San Diego in the next 17 days.
And the confidence from that division title seems to be carrying over.
“To tell you the truth, we know what we’re capable of doing,” Phillips said. “We know we can go out there and win. We know we can win key games. Right now, we know what everybody on our team can do. That’s why we’re gelling right now.”
