Rexx is doing a game by game rundown. Just, wow. Though he has the Ravens beating the Bengals 27-13 during kickoff weekend, Rexx needs to remember that the Bengals have won five of their past six against the Ravens, six of the past eight games.

Even though Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto gave up two runs in each of the last three innings he worked, the Reds scored a combined eight runs in two innings with good relief pitching by Jeremy Affeldt, Mike Lincoln and David Weathers. Then Cordero struck out the first batter he saw, gave up six straight hits -- including a game-tying two run homer -- and two more runs to lose the game 10-8.
