I was at this game. Prior to the game, I had a 15-20 minute conversation with Brewers third-base coach (and Steubenville native) Rich Donnelly. He is a close friend of a friend of mine here in Cambridge--former CHS head basketball coach and current Muskingum College head coach Gene Ford. Miller Park is a very interesting stadium. You feel like you are inside an arena, even when the roof is open. Helfaer Field, the Little League park on the grounds, is a must-see. Jimmy Haynes, Chris Reitsma, and Felix Heredia combined on a five-hitter for the Reds. With two outs in the top of the ninth inning, Ken Griffey Jr. extended his homer streak to five games with a solo shot off Mike DeJean.
