Pettyjohn relieves Cueto, lets 2 on but gets out of it. 1-1 Mid 6.

1-1 after 8 1/2 innings. D-Back pitchers have retired 18 straight hitters.

Reds can't hit a lick. Is there any way we can get Josh back?

Weathers retires the first two in the bottom of the 9th.

Yeah, offer then Volquez. They would likely jump at it.

Patterson homers!

How did OBM get the authority to open a game thread? Wow :).

Anyway, it's up to Cordero. Buckle your seatbelts, gang. We're going for a ride with a 2-1 lead.

Here we go again.

Always an adventure with Coco.

Reds win -- 2-1 take the series despite not hitting enough to even get by--3 hits in 10 innings. But they did get by and it's wonderful though boring as all get out.

Patterson crushed that. Cordero looked good, it's not like those two hits were screamers or anything. Cordero has thrown 11 straight shutout innings. Good win for the Reds. Two of three from the Cubs, two of three in Milwaukee (could've been a sweep), and two of three in Arizona.

The Reds outscored the D-Backs 7-6 in this series. A combined total of 13 runs were scored in this series. Amazing.

That home ump does not have a strikezone that any pitcher could want....Rauch had CP K'd on 2-2....just like Burton had Upton K'd looking before he was taken out.

It is sure nice to see the Reds win three straight series against contending teams. Boy have the D-Backs slumped. They have now lost 16 of their last 21.

Interesting facts on the Arizona Series:

--The Reds outscored the DB's 7-6.

-- Arizona outhit the Reds 22-20

-- The Reds were up to the plate 105 times and got 20 hits for a .190 avg.

-- The Reds left a whopping 40 runners on base, but the DB's left 75!

-- Reds pitchers allowed only 5 earned runs in the series for a 1.60 ERA

-- Reds pitchers walked 23 runners in 28 innings

The Reds were anemic on offense, but the DB's were worse. Some of the Reds and their hitting statistics must be some kind of world record:

Dickerson - 3-8
Richar - 2-10
Votto - 2-12
Encarnacion - 3-11
Bruce - 1-11
Castillo - 0-6
Valentin - 2-3 (piinch hitting)
Patterson - 2-9
Bako - 1-3
Keppinger - 1-11
Rosales - 1-4
Hairston - 0-4
Cabbera - 0-2
Owings - 1-1
Hannigan - 2-6

How in the world did we win two games? Because the other team was worse than we were on those three days with runners in scoring position--by a lot, due to our staff's inability to throw strikes consistently. We were lucky the DB's were down or it could have been ugly.
