John Lackey gave up an opposite field double to Mark Kotsay in the first inning tonight.

And that was it. 27 up, 27 down. Ten strikeouts, no walks.

But the most important thing--he threw a first pitch strike to the last sixteen hitters. It was beautiful to watch.

Judging by the title I thought this was about Milton tonight...;)

Lackey: 2.88 ERA and has a 7-5 record.
Marquis: 5.55 ERA and has a 11-6 record.

:eek:

Well blame that on Bill Stoneman. For some reason he is trying to ruin the best minor league system for positional talent.

Took forever for Erstad to quit playing and he still runs Garret Anderson out there.

Lifelong Reds fan, and lifelong Cincy native, but I'll be honest, I am loving having two home teams here in the Biggest Little City. It's fun.

The last time a pitcher gave up a leadoff hit and then retired 27 straight? Jerry Reuss, in 1983, against the Cincinnati Reds.

Funny old game.

I saw the game. What i liked is no hesitation (like there would be, but with today's managers, you never know) in putting him back out there in the 9th....and Lackey kept throwing strikes.....and not not hittable strikes either.

His breaking ball was wicked......

He was at 97 pitches with a 3-0 lead. No reason to take him out, as you say.
