The Cincinnati Cyclones are preparing for game 1 in the Kelly Cup-- the championship series of the ECHL-- tonight against the Alaska Aces.
To get to the Kelly Cup finals Cincinnati had to beat the Greenville, South Carolina Road Warriors. Game six, the final playoff game was a close one.
Reds fans are reeling from the loss that eliminated Cincinnati from the playoffs.
Gene Mesh doesn't think Reds players had any fire in them after they left San Francisco.
"I think they're reading their own headlines after winning two out there."
He was very disappointed after the 6-4 loss to the Giants and so was Pete Pryval.
"Lost opportunity. We had plenty of chances and it didn't happen."
Reds Manager Dusty Baker says he's getting tired of the disappointments too.
"It hurts. I mean big time."
The Reds are hoping to wrap up the divisional playoff series with a win this afternoon. Last night Cincinnati lost to the Giants 2-1.
The second largest crowd in the history of Great American Ballpark went home disappointed.
Pat Ingram from Ashland, Kentucky said, "I was hoping they'd sweep the Giants. We were all hoping that."
