Sports Headlines for Wednesday, April 05, 2000
Brewers 5, Reds 1
The Reds finally played a game, but it wasn't their game. Their plan for success this year features air-tight relief pitching and powerful offense that overcomes opponents late in games. Neither was evident in Tuesday night's 5-1 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers.
Runs, box score
Neagle proves bad March meant nothing
We need a body of work not just one example before we leap to any lasting conclusions about the Cincinnati Reds' sage left-hander. Statisticians insist on a representative sample. Denny Neagle deserves a fair test.
Die-hard fans brave chill
