Reds fans have little to cheer on Fountain Square

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Despite a significantly smaller crowd on Fountain Square Wednesday, Reds fans stayed optimistic that the team would win game four of the NLDS and clinch a spot in the Championship Series. 

"I don't know what happened today," said fan Eric Austin. "They can't hit."

"Not very good," said Spencer Tuckerman. "I was expecting a win here. They didn't look good last night but I figured they'd bounce back."

The Reds did not lose three games in a row at Great American Ball Park during the regular season. If they do so Thursday, it would end their postseason run. "It would definitely be shocking to lose three straight and lose the series," said Tuckerman.

"To lose series up 2-0," said Austin. "It would be devastating, devastating."

Mayor Mark Mallory calling on Cincinnatians to cheer for the Reds on Thursday for game five of the National League Division Series. "The Reds had an amazing season. And all year long, the foundation of that success has been the strong home field advantage that Reds fans provided. Tomorrow, we need to provide the biggest home field advantage yet. From the moment the Giants get out of bed, they need to know that Cincinnati is Reds Country," said Mayor Mallory.
