including a Grand slam to Hafner.


Jeez! It seems like he's hit like 463 grand slams this year!

A lot of guys have given up nine runs in an inning of work this year. Claussen, Juan Cruz, Ryan Madson. Eleven is more than nine, but not by much. Hudson can recover from this.

1st time since 1897 or something, that a pitcher has allowed 11 runs in the 1st inning...

ESPn said allowing that many runs in the first inning hasn't happened since something like 1896...

Unless ESPN further qualified this statement, then ESPN is wrong. The Reds scored 13 (or maybe even 14?) runs against the Astros in a game at Riverfront in....1989, I think it was? May have been 90, but I believe it was 89.

Someone here can verify this, I'm sure...

I believe they were referring to the fact that ONE pitcher gave up that many runs in the FIRST inning..

Kid Nichols did it in 1897 (12 runs). He also won 31 games that year and eventually made the Hall of Fame. So Luke can sleep easy tonight.

It has been that long since a cold hearted manager left a guy in there long enough to absorb that kind of a beating. He has had some poor teams to work with, but I have never been impressed with Buddy Bell's managing.

Why not get the guy out after four or five runs and give your team a chance to win?

Yes he has. People always forget things like that after one bad outing.

I am not doubting that he has been decent this year...just found it pretty endearing that he was harkening back to his Reds Pitching Roots of giving up so many stinkin runs.

Yup, not sure if this is still the Major League Record but I have the article from USAToday, taped to the inside of an old baseball card album from when I was a kid. I'll try to dig it out tommorow to see if it is dated.

Your right though, the Reds scored at least 13. Maybe more, against the Astros, sometime around 1989.

I'm sure woy will provide a link before I get out of bed tommorow.

Baseball Almanac Box Scores

Cincinnati Reds 18, Houston Astros 2

Game played on Thursday, August 3, 1989 at Riverfront Stadium

Houston 0 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 – 2 8 1
Cincinnati 14 0 0 0 0 0 3 1 x – 18 26 0



But again... Clancy started the game but didn't even get an out before he was replaced by Forsch.
They both allowed 7 runs in that 1st inning.

ESPN said by 1 pitcher.

I watched the first inning. There were three infield hits that could have been outs if fielded properly. Still it was a tough outing for Hudson, I felt bad for Hudson watching it. By the time Hafner came up, Bell should have yanked Hudson but he kept him in there even after walking Marte with the bases loaded.

Talk about "pitching to contact"....Hudson needs to find Dan O'Brien in Milwaukee and smack him.

Yes, he has pitched very well before this...much better than any pitcher the REDS have over the last six weeks.

Wish we had him.

Yes, in fairness to Luke, this was his first really bad start since moving into the Royals' rotation.

He has started 7 games including yesterday's fiasco.

He is 4-1 in those 8 games. Wins came against Boston, White Sox, Texas and Toronto. He had two no decisions -- both games he allowed 3 ER in 6.1 innings -- v. Boston and Anaheim. Not a bad run, until yesterday.
