I'm only following on gamecast. Any chance that was on purpose (payback for the perceived slight to Escobar on Friday)?

BP hits a monster shot about 3' in front of the plate and is thrown out by Ross for the third out.

I wouldn't be surprised if Arroyo's HBP of Escobar yesterday wasn't retaliation for Votto getting hit. The umpire thought it was unintentional, but Bronson has a bit of a mean streak. I figure that Bronson had decided he wanted to pitch inside, and if Escobar gets hit...oh well.

Owings pitched to David Ross like he was Barry Bonds and walks him on 4 straight.

OnBaseMachine
04-26-2009, 02:31 PM
Owings has now walked the two worst hitting position players in the Braves lineup. He's not going to have success if he keeps that up.

Falls City Beer
04-26-2009, 02:31 PM
Owings suffers from an inability to do two things: throw strikes and keep the ball down.

Those two inabilities are two you don't want your pitcher to have.

nate
04-26-2009, 02:32 PM
Owings Ks Kawakami to end the inning.

HeatherC1212
04-26-2009, 02:33 PM
Some of those pitches are awfully close to what I thought was the strike zone. Is it small again today?

Glad Micah got through that inning. Time for some offense or at least for guys to take some freaking pitches. :bang:

Big Klu
04-26-2009, 02:34 PM
Before he bats, I want to go on record as saying that I would have given Edwin a day off today.

Hopefully, he makes me look foolish.

Bruce works a walk in a nice AB.

HeatherC1212

Stop swinging at the first pitch!!! This guy is known for being slightly wild and they're swinging away like he's throwing first pitch strikes. :bang:

EE hits one almost as impressively as BP that's converted into a FC. 2-6. Bruce erased, EE on first.

OnBaseMachine
04-26-2009, 02:39 PM
It's time to give Encarnacion a few days off. Bruce walked, so what does EdE do? He swings at a first pitch fastball at his ankles and dribbles it out in front of the plate.

jojo
04-26-2009, 02:40 PM
Has Owings cracked 90 mph yet?

Owings generally only works in the high 80's with his fastball so we're not seeing anything unusual in that regard this afternoon.

That said, I wonder how many people still think Owings can develop into a #3 arm or better.

nate
04-26-2009, 02:40 PM
Ugh. EE thrown out trying to steal 2nd.

HeatherC1212
04-26-2009, 02:40 PM
That hit and run didn't work at all. :bang:

OnBaseMachine
04-26-2009, 02:40 PM
Unbelievable. Now Encarnacion gets caught stealing by 20 feet. Way to give away outs. This team has hard enough time getting guys on base anyways.

Ouch...ugly FC and then an even uglier hit and run attempt....

The Reds batters are like stubborn little kids who will be patient at the plate only long enough to get back to the way they really want to play.

Officially a caught stealing, but it was a failed hit-and-run.

It's weird that the Reds were able to win close games on the recent road trip and then appear to be in such a molasses funk immediately upon returning home.

Not much Ramon could do on that hit-and-run attempt, either. The Braves put the ball in a place where it was nearly impossible to make contact.

I dunno. The first few teams on the road weren't exactly great teams but Chicago has a quality roster. Atlanta is a nice team as well. So it's not necessarily the quality of the team they're playing.

I think it's (inconsistency) basically just a symptom of a flawed roster-i.e. a roughly .500 team.

HeatherC1212
04-26-2009, 02:52 PM
Bummer. He hit that a little too hard and popped out to center.

Probably the best way for Janish to reach base...

He's actually done a nice job with his limited playing time this year.

I think so too. Bruce has more Pujols in him than he does Matt Stairs, which is to say, he's not allergic to the walk, but he'd rather put it in play HARD somewhere.

He ripped a little cookie fastball on the outer outer edge of the plate into the rightfield bleachers. Nice.

Brantley actually had a good synopsis on Bruce's reinvigorated bat. After he hurt his hand, he was trying to yank the ball. After a little time to heal up on the bench, and some time to watch some tape, he realized he was getting his hands forward to quickly on his swing. He worked on staying back, and is now hitting like .550 since returning to the lineup.
