What a great day at Great American Ballpark! Weather: Great. Our seats: Great. The results: Great.

It was such a good day to take my oldest brother to the Reds' game. He had not yet been to Great American Ballpark, which is ten years old this season, I think. And he hadn't seen Johnny Cueto or Aroldis Chapman in person. So we got to do all the above and more before he and his wife head back home.

After a rocky first inning, in which he gave up a two-run home run to Alfonso Soriano, Johnny Cueto was outstanding, earning his sixteenth win. And homers by Paul, Frazier, and Cairo propelled the Reds into the lead, with a sac fly by Frazier (scoring Bruce) completing the scoring. Aroldis Chapman came in to pitch the ninth, and though three runners reached base (and one scored), he earned his twenty-ninth save of the season.

Great day, great game, great memory, great ballpark.
