Fans of the Cincinnati Reds have not had a good 2022 season.
The team holds the worst record in baseball and had the longest streak of 11 games.
They have even followed a nine-game losing streak up to a nine-game rate streak.
At least they were consistent with the rate.
However, the last three series show that a Reds team has taken a corner for 2022.
What have they done in the last three series?
The Reds are 6-2 from 6 May
Going into their third game tonight against the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Reds are 6-2.
Luis Castillo is back in the lineup for the Reds, and their offense has performed well.
The most important (and really only) reason to tune into the Reds game is the return of Luis Castillo. The right-hander has an electrical thing and it will be a trade piece over time. It’s nice to see him compete.

Although their pitching was not the greatest, their offense granted them bail at least once when they struggled.
However, the three teams that the Reds faced could show whether this run was legitimate or mere luck.
The Brewers are the only Team Reds in the last eight games to top the 500
They had two series against the inferior pirates, and one against the NL Central-led Milwaukee Brewers.
However, they won the series 2-1 against the Brewers.
So late Cincinnati could be something to win.
But we won’t know for sure until they face another proven team.
Meanwhile, the Reds can enjoy the teams they are winning against and will face off in the coming days.
The Reds could take advantage of the next slate of the series game
Cincinnati could run the pace they have in their next three series.
They have two games with the Guardians, three with the Blue Jays and four games against the Cubs at home.
A non-state competitive game could give Cincinnati some fuel for a two-match series win.
Although the Blue Jays are a good team, they have been struggling lately and could turn against Cincinnati.
The more the Blue Jays struggle, the more the league pitching is adjusted and the Blue Jays are pitching separately but the hitters are not adapting to it and they will continue to fight until their pitching gives them 5 hits. .

The last team, the Chicago Cubs, have some problems they need to solve.
These problems give the Reds a perfect chance to play at least two games if the cubs don’t get back on track.
However, after these three series, Cincinnati faced some tough teams.
But the Reds can get some good news in their tough series of games.
Joey Voto could be back during the Blue Jays series
The Reds’ top first-baseman has been out with covid-related health problems since May 3rd.
However, the Reds are currently in charge of rehabilitating him with a minor league team in their triple.

However, he may return in time for the Blue Jays series next week.
The question is whether the Reds want him as a first-base or designated heater.
Before Kovid got on the injury list, he had a batting average of .122 and only three RBIs in the season.
Colin Moran has filled in for the vote and the Reds have posted some impressive at-bat during the current streak.
Although Voto could first replace Moran when he returns, he may be more suitable as DH.
However, no matter where the Reds put him, he is a leader they can use to get into their tough games in 2022.
