Reds baseball game #22!

My parents were in town for the big NL Central showdown. The first-place Reds, with
the best record in all of baseball, were taking on the second-place Pirates in the first
of three games for the battle for the battle to #TakeTheCentral. At the start of tonight's
game, just 3.5 games separated the two teams...

On the way into the ball park, my dad picked up an Aroldis Chapman t-shirt...

Broxton picked up the other two outs in the eighth to take the game to the ninth.
Tonight another capacity crowd was on hand at GABP...

A while back Reds Hall of Fame announcer, Marty Brennaman said if this Reds team could
win 10 games in a row that he would shave his head. Well, the Reds rattled of 10 in a row.
And then Marty said that if Reds fans could raise $20,000 for the Reds Community Fund,
he'd get his head shaved at home plate. Well, the Reds fans raised $20,000! And corporate
sponsors kicked in another $30,000. So tonight Marty got his haircut...
