Brumfield failed the test, committing two errors. Reds reliever Chris Bushing made his major-league debut in this game, pitching 1 inning and allowing 3 runs (2 earned) on 3 hits.

I sat through the majority of the 81 games at Riverfront for this season and I have absolutely no recollection of this guy. Too many Hudeys, I guess.

That has got to be the absolute worst lineup in the long history of the Reds. Castro leading off is bad enough......but Hummel second and Larue fifth?

Dallas Williams was a left-handed OF who wore #30, and whose strong suits were speed (though he wasn't a particularly good basestealer) and defense. He was a career minor-leaguer who spent eight years at AAA for four different organizations.

I told everyone that it would get worse!

Williams was a pretty well regarded prospect when he played here in Indy. I think he still lives here in Indy and his son who I umpired a few of his games signed with the Red Sox a few years back. Williams was the first base coach for Boston back around 03'

The Reds finally made the long road back to first. After being 11 games behind on July 1 they tied the Dodgers on this date for first place. They take first by themselves the next day and don't look back. Quite an accomplishment being that far behind at that late of date to win the division.

I was thinking the same thing, though I don't think you have to limit it to the Reds. That may be the worst lineup in MLB history.
