Rugged Cincinnati wins 11 straight…longest winning streak in 66 years

The Major League Baseball (MLB) Cincinnati Reds have won 11 straight games for the first time in 66 years.

Cincinnati won 5-3 at home against the Colorado Rockies on Sunday (June 22) at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Down 3-0 after three solo home runs, Cincinnati’s bats exploded in the bottom of the fifth to tie the game at 3-3, and Jake Pralley hit a two-run homer with one out in the bottom of the eighth to complete the thrilling comeback.

The win extended Cincinnati’s winning streak to 11 games, dating back to April 11 against the St. Louis Cardinals. It’s the longest winning streak for the team since a 12-game winning streak in 1957.

The Reds, who have been racking up wins at a frightening rate of late, are the first team in the National League Central to reach the 40-win plateau (35). It’s a remarkable rebound for the underdogs, who lost 100 games last year.바카라

Cincinnati manager David Bell said, “We’re realizing that this streak doesn’t come easy. Every day is a battle. It’s a huge challenge and we’re going to have to give it everything we’ve got.”

Meanwhile, Colorado’s lack of heart cost them the win and snapped an eight-game losing streak. The Rockies are 29-48 and in last place in the National League West.
