Ryan Freel catches deep drive to center by Lee for the third out.

Lee hammered it, but Freel made the catch to end the inning.

Although they hit a couple of near homers I don't think they were horrible pitches.

Milton pretty darn competent through three innings again, on a day with the wind blowing out. Nice. Very nice.

What happened?
Totally botched a flyball that wound up hitting less than halfway up the wall for a double. Dunn hadn't even stepped foot on the warning track before the ball hit the wall.

At least Milton got out of it, retiring a tough hitter in the process.

DERREK LEE with the flyout to deep centerfield that seems to die in the air after looking like a surefire HR off the bat.

What happened?
Hairston golfed a high fly which Dunn thought was out, but it came up short and hit the door in LF (Like the Reds used to have at Crosley) he could have got it if he was Von Hayes.

But he's not, he's Adam Dunn... not the best fielder in the world and really tall, so every high fly he is suppose to get.

PickOff
04-13-2006, 04:14 PM
What happened?

Looks like Dunn thought the ball was a homer, slows up, and watches it hit the wall. In his defense the ball was a moon shot and the wind probably blew it back, since it is blowing out to right today

Baloney...Dunn just flat out is a jober in LF defense.

Dunn and Griff are not good in the outfield. For the Reds organization to take the next step in becoming a contender, we need to overhaul the defense and that means these 2 guys must play 1B and LF respectively....like it or not. We've tried to fix the pitching staff to resemble a baseball staff instead of softball staff. Now the defense we run out there must start resembling baseball players instead of softball players. The defense has been horrid this year thus far.

NEFI PEREZ gets behind 0-2 and then gets rung up by Milton on a breaking ball in the dirt. A 9-iron would've gotten that ball yard, but a baseball bat probably won't do the job (except for Kevin Costner, maybe).

ADAM DUNN -- He Who Makes Cubs Fans Tremble -- up with Zambrano clearly not in his right frame of mind. If he goes yard here, they might have to commit the man. Dunn does his whole "plate discipline" thing to work a 3-1 count before taking an awful strike-2 call (that whole "his knees are high" thing again -- maybe he needs to wear kneepads more often).

Dunn then strikes out swinging. Oh well, he's done his job on my fantasy team already today.

Back for the rest of the frame. Cubs announcers claim that the run against Zambrano was unearned. So, all Milton has to do to avoid Earned Runs is just airmail a few throws into the bleachers? Sounds fantastic.

JERRY HARRISTON up in an RBI situation. Reds play back on defense, conceding a run. Technically, with Eric Milton pitching, aren't you always "conceding a run" just by letting him throw his fastball?

Harriston runs the count full and fouls a few off. Milton must be up to at least 150 pitches now. He finally induces a lazy, lazy flyball to Adam Dunn in short left, not deep enough for a sac.

Milton: Warrior.

Professionalism at the plate right there. As opposed to amatuerism, which would mean he wouldn't have an agent to negotiate his fat, starting 1st baseman's paycheck.

Through 6 innings: Milton has thrown 94 pitches and Zambrano has thrown 104 pitches.

HENRY BLANCO up as Milton goes for the elusive (to the Reds, at least) 1-2-3 inning. Were Blanco to be retired here, Milton will have pitched his second consecutive quality start. Of course, as I type this, he hits a drive deep into the Chicago Afternoon, but it magically stays in the park for Dunn to play.

Milton obviously a man who says his prayers.

3 outs, heading to the 7th, Reds still in the lead 5-3.

It's time for the Pitchers to hold a blanket party on Dunn, he has potential but its like he's only going through the motions.
