Down 2-1 with 2 outs in 9th, Reds rally to win.
That my friends is a Ballsy win....with a capital B.
Reds have won 4 in a row and sweep the Astros.
3 straight one run wins against the best team in baseball for the Reds, including wins against Verlander and Cole! Hopefully this is a turning point and not the highlight of the 2019 season! #Reds— Greg Cornish (@gcornish8888) June 19, 2019
WHAT A COMEBACK BY THE REDS!!! Holy cow! Swept the Astros and a 4 game winning streak and counting! Love the spirit this team has been showing and cant wait to see what this team does in the future! #reds— Aaron Rigsby (@AaronRigsbyOSC) June 19, 2019
Of course the #Reds are the first team to sweep the Astros this season... because baseball!— Mike Sutphin (@tyler_sutphin2) June 19, 2019
"And Osuna pitches and it's a swing and a ground ball up the middle, BASE HIT! Here comes Senzel, the throw to the plate...NOT IN TIME and this one belongs to the Reds! What a two-out comeback by this Reds ball club as they mob Winker out on the field!" #reds #sweep— TitanicStruggle (@TitanicStruggle) June 19, 2019
Sweet Sweep! #Reds take down the Astros with a 2-out, 2-run rally in the bottom of the 9th. What a game, what a series, all 1-run wins. After Saturday's loss to the Rangers, the Reds were staring down the barrel of going 10 games under .500. Instead, they are 5½ out of 1st place.— Mr. R (@MisterRedlegs) June 19, 2019
Unreal series. This team is starting to figure things out. A #walkoff to sweep one of the best teams in baseball gives me some hope. 5.5 out division and 5 out in WC. If we can take 3-4 from Brewers we are right in the thick of this thing. #Reds #BornToBaseball pic.twitter.com/D9JOll5ARo— RedsReview 34-38 (@redsreview1) June 19, 2019
