Leadoff triple, followed by a pop up. Now Gonzalez up for the Padres. Arroyo is usually good at pitching out of trouble. Would settle for one run here.

Gonzalez flies to short center. Runner holds. I'm no longer willing to give up one run.

Kouzmanoff doubles home the run.

First inning blues again for the Reds.

K ends the inning.

1-0 Pads.

The Dumbletastic Duo: making sure Votto comes up with the bases empty and two outs most of the time.

Reds go down in order. I've always kind of liked Correia. I wish the Reds had him. He's better than Owings IMO.

Reds go in order. Votto swings at ball four and Ks.

With this lineup, the Pads may already have the margin of victory with their one run.

Really? I think we have 3 guys who combined for 4 HRs last night who haven't stepped to the plate yet.

I've been watching all season, as you have. No lead against the Reds is too small.

Pads get second and third but pitcher grounds to EE who gets the man on third in a rundown. Two out, first and third.

Fly out. Inning ends. Arroyo lucky that nobody scores.

As larkin points out, Reds lumber coming up.

I know, but this team has been, for the past decade, one word. Streaky. For awhile there, our offense was fine, but our SP was letting us down. Every person on this team (sans Votto, who may be on one right now) is streaky. Our players have always been streaky

I'd walk Taveras to get to AGon.

Of course, Willy might swing at an intentional ball, though. He don't like them walks, not one bit

The earth would freeze on it's axis if Taveras was intentionally walked to get to anybody.

Why does he need a HR swing when there's guys on 2nd & 3rd? Why? Someone please just tell me why?

Gonzo makes a great play on a 2 hopper over the mound.

2.2, Gonzo (SD style) goes yardo.

In Gonzo's previous 115 ab's, he it 1 dinger. In the last 2 games against the Reds....well, you know the rest.

As good as Arroyo looked in his last start, not so much tonight.

Fastball is f-l-a-t

Yes it was and he got an RBI out of it too. :)

Nice hit by Joey who looks pretty calm and collected so far tonight. Hopefully it stays that way, LOL :laugh:

Arroyo works out of another jam getting Eckstein to ground out to Votto stranding 2 Pads.

Hard to say it really depends on who gets dealt and how much salary relief is available on his contract.

Edwin with a nice play on Kouzmanoff's grounder, Votto picks it out. Votto's D continues to get better and better. Gonzalez than takes care of the Pads, three ground ball outs that inning for Bronson as he is settling in.

Willy T pops up to Eck and Gonzo flies weakly to right two outs.

I think Phillips had a gripe. The pitch before was in the same spot and a ball. I do agree that some of the umpires are trying to go back to the 70's flare that some of the older umpires had. Just call the game.

"Back in the good ol' days the lead off hitter was always a speedy CFer or middle infielder. The two hole hitter was always a middle infielder or CFer with bat control and speed. Phillips is a middle infielder but he's my clean up hitter. I'm stuck, whatta ya want me to do? I gotta try to go by the book Dude."

Just like to add in my courtesy LOL for Dusty leaving in Bronson to start the 7th after 112 pitches. Cost the Reds the game. It worked out for him the night before, so using his thinking, it's gotta work again tonight right? WRONG. Bad move leads to a run and the loss. Won't prevent Dusty from making the same mistake again though.
