Just as we thought we could escape yesterday’s Reds-Twins Under 9 bet with a push, .145-hitting Jason Castro punched in the decisive run from second with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, putting us under backers away. It’s a shame, as the tough part of that bet was garnering quality pitching out of Tyler Mahle, who was terrific. Unfortunately, Jose Berrios let us down in a big way against the majors’ worst team in a performance that none could have saw coming. Let’s move on and try to end the month right.
