In the past week, the Reds played nothing but winning NL teams, which meant for a great opportunity to see how the now healthy Reds measure up. The week began with a necessary split against the high-profile Dodgers at home before an enormous three-game series with first place Milwaukee, in Milwaukee. The Brewers were 5-0-2 in their last seven series, making the Reds' series victory even more impressive.
For a change of pace in Reds Country, it wasn't the pitching that pushed the Reds to 4-3 on the week. It was an offense that averaged 5.3 runs per game.
Some names have finally returned to this list, and one bat in particular is getting very comfortable atop the throne.
