Reds' Latos delivers win, shout-out to wife on her b-day
On Thursday afternoon, Mat Latos won another game for the Cincinnati Reds. That's been a common theme since the right-hander joined the club last season, compiling a 27-8 record in a Reds uniform.
But this win was different - it fell on his wife's birthday.
W for my bday. That’s. right. #TeamLatos @reds #whiff FIREWORKS!!!!— Dallas Latos (@DallasLatos) August 22, 2013
Latos even sent a shout-out to his wife pregame - he changed his walkup music for the game to Dallas' favorite band (Deftones). That gesture did not go unnoticed, as she sent a video of the game's warmups through Vine.
Even the family cat got in on the celebration - and yes, they have a cat named "Cat Latos".
Yo, it's my Mom's birthday. AND Dad is pitching!!!— Cat Latos (@CatLatos) August 22, 2013
I'd say it's a Latos day!
If you see @DallasLatos, tell her you Latos her! #LatosIsLove
Thanks for the win, Mat, and happy birthday Dallas!
