WP: Jose Acevedo (4-6)

HR: PIT - Jason Bay (8). CIN - Wily Mo Peņa (7).

I was at this game. The Pirates acored all four of their runs in the first inning off Jose Acevedo on a two-out RBI single by Rob Mackowiak and a three-run homer by Jason Bay. The score remained 4-0 until the seventh inning. The Reds had only one hit through the first six innings (an infield single by Ryan Freel with one out in the sixth), and the first two batters in the seventh were retired (Ken Griffey Jr. on a K, and Adam Dunn on a fly out). But then Jason LaRue doubled down the left field line, and Juan Castro singled to RF to advance LaRue to 3B. RZ fave "Thug Life" Tim Hummel then singled to RF to score LaRue and advance Castro to 2B. Pinch-hitter Jermaine Clark then singled to CF, scoring Castro and sending Hummel to 3B. After Clark stole second, Ryan Freel walked to load the bases. Manager Dave Miley called back D'Angelo Jimenez and sent Wily Mo Peņa to the plate to pinch-hit, and WMP hit a ball off the back wall of the Reds' bullpen in CF for a grand slam. GABP erupted with chants of "WIL-Y MO! WIL-Y MO!", and he got a curtain call.
