Rugged Cincinnati wins 11 straight…longest winning streak in 66 years

The Major League Baseball (MLB) Cincinnati Reds have won 11 straight games for the first time in 66 years.

Cincinnati defeated the Colorado Rockies 5-3 at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, Ohio, U.S., on Sunday (April 22).

Down 3-0 after three solo home runs, Cincinnati’s bats exploded in the bottom of the fifth inning to tie the game at 3-3, and Jake Pralley hit a two-run homer with the bases loaded in the bottom of the eighth to complete the thrilling comeback.스포츠토토

The win extended Cincinnati’s winning streak to 11 games, dating back to April 11 against the St. Louis Cardinals. It’s the longest winning streak for the team since a 12-game winning streak in 1957.

The Reds, who have been racking up wins at a frightening rate of late, are the first team in the National League Central to reach the 40-win plateau (35). It’s a remarkable rebound for the underdogs, who lost 100 games last year.

Cincinnati manager David Bell said, “We’re realizing that this streak doesn’t come easy. Every day is a battle. It’s a huge challenge and we’re going to have to give it everything we’ve got.”

Meanwhile, Colorado’s lack of heart cost them the win and snapped an eight-game losing streak. The Rockies are 29-48 and in last place in the National League West.
