Reds hold team meeting before taking on Brewers
The slumping Cincinnati Reds held a team meeting on Saturday
before taking on the Milwaukee Brewers after losing six of the last
eight games and falling two games under .500 for the first time in
more than a year.
Reds manager Dusty Baker declined to say what issues would be
discussed, but the Reds have alternated losing leads and failing to
generate enough offense over the last week and a half.
Cincinnati has dropped two consecutive one-run games against the
Brewers to start this four-game series.
The Reds lost Thursday’s opener 5-4 after going 2 for 13 with
runners in scoring position and stranding men on the corners in the
ninth. On Friday, they squandered leads of 4-0 and 7-5 when closer
Francisco Cordero allowed three runs in the ninth.
