CINCINNATI — The Reds’ season has started a lot like the last one ended, with a lot of losses set up by a lot runners stranded on base.
All they can do is ride it out.
Cincinnati has lost all of its three series to open the season, with its lack of clutch hitting the main culprit. The Reds (3-6) have stranded 71 runners in their nine games and are batting only .214 with runners in scoring position. With runners on scoring position and two outs, it’s .129.
And it’s the main reason they’re taking up the rear in the NL Central.
“Who would have said that?” pitcher Homer Bailey said. “I don’t think anybody in here would have expected that or could have even conceived it in their mind. We just need to be better.”

DALLAS — Columbus had a little head start with a chance to clinch just the second playoff berth in franchise history.
The Blue Jackets took advantage right away Wednesday night.
Artem Anisimov and Mark Letestu added first-period goals to the one Columbus already had when the puck dropped in a makeup game with Dallas, and the Blue Jackets withstood a frantic third period for a 3-1 victory over the equally playoff-hungry Stars.
