Reds look to shake off tough loss to Brewers

MILWAUKEE -- Even the best teams in baseball are going to lose 60-70 games a season, and some will sting more than others. For a Reds team still trying to get traction, Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Brewers that came when the bullpen gave up all four runs late was among the tougher ones that Bryan Price has absorbed in his first year as a manager.

Like everyone, Price and the club had to move on quickly.

"We're all chasing that good feeling at the end of a win and it has that carry over. You sleep better. You wake up. You're in a better mood," Price said. "Every team does the same thing. [But], if you're going to survive this game and it's challenges, you're going to have to be able to get past the tough losses and move forward. I've really worked hard at that. It's not easy to do.

"Absolutely at times, there is some residual carryover after tough losses or losing streaks. It just stays on your mind. You're constantly trying to figure out as a manager what you're going to do to make a difference."
