The Reds rolled off a 6 game winning streak against the Yankees and Braves to propel themsleves into 1st place in the NL Central. The Rockies ended that streak last night 6-3. Before the Reds start another streak let’s look back at some of the stats during that streak.
- The Reds outscored their opponents 27-15.
- Reds starters had 5 of the 6 wins
- Homer Bailey…yes, Homer Bailey went 2-0.
- Mike Leake stole his first win of the season.
- Joey Votto only went 4-19 but did hit a 3 run HR in the Reds 6-5 win over the Yankees
- Aroldis Chapman officially took over the closer role from San Marshall.

The Reds are still a half game up on the Cardinals. Cincinnati is hoping is doesn’t have to look back up at them the rest of the season.
