The Reds are 8-2 in their last 10 games, finding themselves in first place in the NL Central. If Reds fans would have read that sentence at the beginning of the year, they would have found that comical. However, that is the reality. The Reds are finally turning the curve.
The Reds have found help in all different ways this season. One of the reasons they find themselves where the are is because of their rookie INF Matt McLain. McLain has caught fire this season and has not slowed down ever since.
McLain is slashing an impressive .325/.380/.541 with 5 home runs and 22 RBI. What McLain is doing is the story of the 2023 Reds. Top prospects are producing with a nice mix of verterans.
Just last night, McLain went 4-5 with three doubles and a home run to give him 5 RBI on the night. The Reds are on a roll right now and are giving the Reds faithful a reason to show out. It's a fresh sight for a team who seemingly finds themselves at the bottom of the league for quite some time now.
