Poor, poor Hanigan for being so slow, and a catcher. ;)

Lehr Ks two that inning, including D Lee. No score, bottom one.

Nice to see the Reds starting off the game with two outs.

Two Ks for Harden, nothing for Reds.

Welsh talking about the lack of a two hitter on the team. Stating that Hanigan may fit in that role, however he hasn't shown that he can hit higher in the order. Hanigan has exactly 4 at bats in the two hole Chris, talk about small sample size.

Yeah I was thinking "he couldn't have had that many at-bats in the #2 spot..."


I would also suggest we lack a one hitter as well.

08-05-2009, 08:28 PM
Lehr getting sqeezed a bit, tough being a nibbler tonight.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 08:32 PM
Votto is quickly becoming a good defensive first baseman, not bad for a catcher.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 08:34 PM
0-0 going to the bottom of the second. Bruce will be interviewed at the top of the 3rd. I wonder if they will ask him any questions about Rolen.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 08:36 PM
Nice hustle by Phillips, as he beats the throw. Welcome back Rolen HR.

That a boy Wlad.

08-05-2009, 08:38 PM
Wlad with a single, looking pretty good so far.

Tom Servo
08-05-2009, 08:38 PM
I'm really enjoying watching Balentien thus far.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 08:39 PM
The book on Nix is sooo easy to read anymore.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 08:41 PM
Rolen looks like he could use some Rogaine.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 08:43 PM
1st and 2nd as Hanigan draws the walk. Lehr bunts poor throw leads to a run 3-0 lead.

Tom Servo
08-05-2009, 08:43 PM
Terrible idea by Harden. 3-0 Reds!

Willy T up with runners in scoring position :eek:

Gosh he is not good.

Tom Servo
08-05-2009, 08:46 PM
Willy T up with runners in scoring position :eek:
And he strikes out. Of course.

WVRedsFan
08-05-2009, 08:46 PM
I think we've seen many reasons why Jocketty wanted Rolen. He'll add offense which was sorely needed. As for Vlad, he is speedy, huh? Maybe that won't be a bad move either...

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 08:47 PM
Willy T brings no positives to this team, plain and simple.

reds44
08-05-2009, 08:47 PM
I like Wlad. At worst he is some late inning power off the bench.

reds44
08-05-2009, 08:48 PM
Come on Joey

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 08:48 PM
Bases juiced for Votto as Gonzo draws the walk.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 08:49 PM
Harden doesn't have his best stuff tonight, continues to struggle.

Votto is having issues in this series.

Votto fans. Three zip after two.

Votto is having issues in this series.
Can't get a hit everytime.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 08:52 PM
Votto is having issues in this series.

He needs to learn to lay off that pitch.

I'm amused at Joey giving Jay a little ribbing from 1B at the start of this interview, LOL :laugh: It's really nice to hear from Jay about how he's doing and hopefully he can get back on the field soon. :)

Dickerson with the shaving cream and Gomes with the ice water down the back. At least Jay has a good temperment.

Lehr mows them down again. Maybe the Reds have a pitcher on their hands.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 08:58 PM
Lehr looking good so far tonight seems to have found a nice groove.

Brutus

He's doing a great job keeping the ball down.

Phillips plunked by a 95mph heater.

HeatherC1212
08-05-2009, 09:03 PM
Ouch, that had to hurt. :eek:

Tom Servo

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 09:04 PM
Nice camera work there, as he missed the tag.

Hoosier Red
08-05-2009, 09:05 PM
Wow, good call, he never tagged him.

HeatherC1212
08-05-2009, 09:05 PM
Good call and for once, a call goes our way! ;)

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 09:06 PM
Stupid, stupid play.

Ltlabner
08-05-2009, 09:06 PM
What the hell was he thinking?

Tom Servo
08-05-2009, 09:08 PM
Wlad ALMOST had it.

reds44
08-05-2009, 09:08 PM
I thought Wlad got that one.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 09:09 PM
HE gets plunked and than loses his mind. Guy has a mental lapse at least once a week.

Hoosier Red
08-05-2009, 09:11 PM
Well there goes the no hitter

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 09:14 PM
Two on and two out for the baby bears.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 09:16 PM
Lehr with a nice K there.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 09:17 PM
Bailey's splitter looks nothing like Harden's or Lehr's, he might want to play around with the grip a bit.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 09:22 PM
2 down as Nix and Hanigan are retired.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 09:24 PM
Reds down in order, lead 3-0.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 09:30 PM
Sweet pitch to K Hill.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 09:31 PM
Harden with a double just out of Rolen's reach.

Reds Fanatic
08-05-2009, 09:35 PM
Great play by Phillips to end the inning.

Kc61
08-05-2009, 09:35 PM
Phillips with a web gem.

08-05-2009, 09:36 PM
Lehr is through 5 on 68 pitches.

HeatherC1212
08-05-2009, 09:47 PM
Wow, Lehr is just mowing these guys down tonight. Are the other Reds pitchers taking notes on this performance?! :eek: :D

I am glad to see Balentien being given a good look.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 09:48 PM
Lehr is dominating right now, bought time a Reds pitcher did.

Reds Fanatic
08-05-2009, 09:49 PM
Another 1-2-3 inning for Lehr. He is now through 6 on only 78 pitches.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 09:49 PM
I am glad to see Balentien being given a good look.

The Wlad pick up reminds me of the Phillips trade in so many ways. No pressure on the kid and let him play.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 09:59 PM
3-0 moving on to the 7th.

Kc61
08-05-2009, 10:05 PM
Lehr picks off Soriano.

KoryMac5

Soriano picked off by Lehr.

Tom Servo
08-05-2009, 10:06 PM
Man, Lehr is on fire.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 10:07 PM
Lehr continue to roll. Wonder what kind of leash Dusty gives him tonight.

Kc61
08-05-2009, 10:08 PM
Rolen with a couple of chances that inning. Nothing too difficult. Still, he is quite an upgrade at third.

Gallen5862

What type pitches is Lehr throwing?

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 10:10 PM
Did I see an infield hit out of Willy T.

Doc. Scott
08-05-2009, 10:11 PM
What type pitches is Lehr throwing?

Slow, slower, slowest, and stopped. Gameday thinks his fastball is a changeup.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 10:12 PM
What type pitches is Lehr throwing?

Mixing an array of fastball, curve, and splitter. The curve is a big breaker with nice rotation, he doesn't throw it a lot but spots it well. Great job tonight mixing speeds and location.

Degenerate39
08-05-2009, 10:12 PM

AND two stolen bases? :eek::eek::eek:

KoryMac5

4-0 Reds as Willy T finally created a run with his speed.

Kc61
08-05-2009, 10:14 PM
Taveras scores on short fly ball.

4-0 Reds heading to the bottom of the 7th.

Thanks for the updates and comments on lehr sounds like he is doing well.

Josh Roenicke having some difficulties tonight against the Yankees.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 10:21 PM
I'm not one for pushing up pitch counts but I hope they let Lehr finish tonight. Guys has kicked around for awhile he deserves the CG.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 10:23 PM
4-0 Reds heading to the 9th.

HeatherC1212
08-05-2009, 10:27 PM
IIRC, I think Willy actually has TWO infield hits tonight. :eek: One that the SS couldn't get to Lee quick enough and the other Ramirez couldn't get to Lee quick enough. He has two hits tonight and Joey has none.....the universe may implode before this game is over, LOL :laugh:

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 10:29 PM
Willy T with a couple of hits, I may just drop a dollar or two on the Mega Millions.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 10:30 PM
Bottom of the 9th and the fans will be on their feet in support of Lehr.

Kc61
08-05-2009, 10:33 PM
3-0 moving on to the 7th.


Willy T with a couple of hits, I may just drop a dollar or two on the Mega Millions.


Willy had two hits yesterday as well.

He would be a lot better off if he would only walk. He just doesn't walk, which is a big problem for a slap hitting leadoff guy.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 10:33 PM
Who would the Philles rather have right now Pedro or Lehr?

KoryMac5

His lack of walks has been a big problem. However equally important has been the style of his swing. He uppercuts too many pitches, needs to stay on top to use his speed.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 10:37 PM
1 down as Theriot flies out after 10 pitches, Lee coming up.

Kc61

No doubt, you're totally correct. Still when he is in a good groove, like the last few games, he can get his share of singles. But the failure to walk is just impossible.

KoryMac5
08-05-2009, 10:38 PM
Lee is gone 1 out away from the CG.

What an outing tonight for Lehr. Just fabulous. He's got the shutout.

That's what I call a pitching performance! Take your Cuetos and your Volquezes and add in your Harangs and Arroyos, but this was justa tremendous outing.

The streak is over. Can a pennant be far behind? ;)

Been a long season, but a nice moment tonight as Lehr gets the CG win.

Maybe not the best performance by a starter for the Reds this year...but this one impressed me the most. Wow.

Figures it would happen on the day I breakdown and finally put some money against the Reds. :bang:

So now the question for the night is.....who gets Justin with the shaving cream pie in the face during his interview?! :D

Jonny Gomes got him - twice.

My oldest daughter called me when we were up 3-0 to tell me and said they'd interviewed Jay Bruce and he had his cast off. She has had a theory, which may have been validated tonight, that Jay had on a blue cast and we were losing to teams with blue in their uniforms (I think there was one exception in there). Anyway, now the cast is gone and we win. Who knew?

HeatherC1212
08-05-2009, 10:48 PM
And the answer to my previous question is Johnny Gomes and Chris Dickerson (I think, LOL). Loved the bullpen giving him a big group hug too, LOL :laugh:

HeatherC1212
08-05-2009, 10:53 PM
I stand corrected....it was Bronson and Johnny who double pied Justin during his interview, LOL :laugh:

I wasn't able to watch the game live but I did catch the highlights. Lehr looked amazing!

I'm really happy for the guy. Learning his story made the CG shutout that much better. Here's hoping that he can continue to pitch well.

Ron Madden

It feels good to win one for a change. :thumbup:

Justin Lehr pitched a very fine game. :beerme: I'd run him out there again, until he gets his brains beat out.

One thing is for sure: a start like this ensures that many will be clamoring for Justin Lehr to be a part of next year's plans for the rotation.
