The homer happy Cincinnati Reds got a walk-off home run from Todd Frazier Wednesday night to send Atlanta to its third straight loss and fourth in its last five games. The estimated distance of the game-winning blast was 355 feet which is an out at basically any ballpark but Cinci's Great American Ballpark. After the game Fredi Gonzalez talked about the homer and his own team's struggles with the bats of late.
"I don't know about lazy, but it's a flyball to deep right field [at Turner Field]. But the fences are there, they don't move them back when we come to hit. It's just one of those things. Hopefully we come out tomorrow and Delgado will give us a good outing and our bats will get going."
After experiencing an offensive surge early Atlanta's offense has been non-existent of late. It hasn't helped that Chipper Jones has been out of the lineup with a leg contusion, Brian McCann has missed the last two games with flu like symptoms and Freddie Freeman continues to battle issues with his eyes. Atlanta will send Randall Delgado to the mound on Thursday as they try to get back on track and avoid a sweep.
