For our one night stay in the Cincinnati area we checked into a motel in Newport, Kentucky. The city of Newport is located directly across the river from Cincinnati, Ohio. We’ll attend a major league ballgame in Cincinnati tonight. The Cincinnati Reds host the Pittsburgh Pirates in a national league contest.

We didn’t spend much time in the city of Cincinnati. We went into Cincinnati just to see the ballgame. We spent the rest of our time in this metro area in the suburbs on the Kentucky side of the Ohio River.

The competitive phase of the ballgame ended quickly. The Reds scored early and often. The Pirates played poorly, as if they were ready to leave town – which they did, immediately after the game.

The final score was Cincinnati 8, Pittsburgh 2. Box Score

After the ballgame, we walked across the Taylor-Southgate Bridge in the warm and humid evening to return to our motel in Newport, Kentucky.
