Bourn doubles to LF on a ball that Duvall lost in the sun.

Big Klu

Those are some dark gray uniforms for the Snakes.

Goldschmidt groundout advances Bourn to 3rd
Lamb walks and steals 2nd
Castillo sac fly scores Bourn and moves Lamb to 3rd
Drury flyout to CF ends the inning.

Well, that's exactly what you want from a leadoff hitter.

Billy lines a single up the middle on the first pitch.

Ron Madden

Billy with some slick hand movement looked safe at 2B

Reds Challenge and the call is Safe!

Big Klu

Hamilton caught stealing, but it's under review.

The throw beat him there, but he pulled away his left hand and slipped in his right around the tag.

Ruling: Safe!

OK, according to Piecoro, the Reds are wearing red tonight because Straily requested it.

I wonder if he will request it for road games, too.

A little surprised that the Snakes didn't send the runner to the plate there.

Why wasn't Phillips covering 2B there?

That throw from Duvall would have had the runner by two miles

Big Klu

They were setting up a tandem cutoff. He was backing up Cozart on the cut.

Nice job by Straily in the 5th to sit down the dangerous Goldschmidt and Lamb combo.

Big Klu
07-22-2016, 08:54 PM
This game has settled down. The Reds go out in order, and then Straily works around a leadoff single and a one-out balk to shut down the Snakes.

Straily getting close to qualifying for pizza.

Good work from Iggy in the 7th and 8th, but looks like we're in the same position as the other week. He's clearly the best option for the 9th with a 3 run lead, but he's already thrown 30 pitches.

Iglesias is devastating out of the pen. Still think I'd try to get him starting next year if possible. And if he is pen bound, I hope they don't limit him to strictly save situations.

Piecoro said earlier in the game that they are wearing the red jerseys tonight because Straily requested it. (He has had more success this season wearing red than wearing white.)

If he keeps pitching like he did tonight, then he should request wearing them on the road, too!

Seems like they just use him as the relief ace. I'm sure if they wanted to use him purely as a closer he would be the pick. But man, they have used him 2 innings multiple times lately and he's just money. Until we get better guys we might just see more results as you stated. Hand the ball over after 30 pitches and just hope for the best.
