Any chance someone isn't using their MLB.com audio today and wants to hook us up w/ their login? Though it wouldn't hurt to ask. :)

Sutton in LF and Wells pitching. If we can win with this team, I feel bad for the Braves. :eek:

Scoreless through four. Wells mowing them down. Strikes out the side. Has good movement tonight.

All the Reds pitchers have been better since they put this defensive infield together. Janish doesn't help the offense, but with Rolen and Janish in there the defense is really helping the Reds pitchers. Add Stubbs' defense in too.

Reds 0, Braves 0.

Kip Wells 64 pitches, 35 strikes, 3 Ks, 3 BBs, 1 hit.

Didn't Bob Apocolypse play for the Mets? I get him confused with Biff Pocoroba.

Wow, crazy game tonight. I hope they start making Jurrjens throw some pitches or else he'll go the whole game and we may not do anything. :eek:

Almost a yesiree but Infante beats it out.

Kc61
09-05-2009, 09:33 PM
Wells walks the pitcher. Two on, one out. Second time he's done that. It's not Babe Ruth, Kip.

Wells showing everyone tonight that he knows how to walk the pitcher.

Kc61
09-05-2009, 09:34 PM
Wells fans McClouth looking. Two out.

Line drive to left ends the inning.

Votto fortunate there.

KoryMac5
09-05-2009, 09:35 PM
Walking a pitcher who is trying to bunt the runner over is never good. Wells has good stuff if he could ever get over the mental lapses he would be something.

BCubb2003
09-05-2009, 09:35 PM
Walks will haunt. Walks of the pitcher will terrify.

HeatherC1212
09-05-2009, 09:35 PM
Maybe he's trying to get their pitcher tired by putting him on the bases, LOL :laugh:

Kip Wells living large tonight...4 walks in 5 innings, no runs.

Reds 0, Braves 0:
Wells at 78 pitches, 41 strikes.
Jurrjens at 58 pitches, 39 strikes.

KoryMac5

Wells makes it through 5, not bad for the scrapheap.

Stubbs flies out. He's having a lot of trouble with this Braves pitcher.

But Janish works a walk.

Joe Simpson saying Janish reminds him of Oester. I think Janish is way more athletic than Oester.

Phillips doubles. The Reds are getting to this guy now.

HeatherC1212
09-05-2009, 09:45 PM
I think the Reds are figuring out Jurrjens in this inning. :)

And my fantasy team smiles with that bomb by Joey. :D

KoryMac5
09-05-2009, 09:46 PM
That HR came after a visit to the mound by McCann. He should go out to the mound more often.

Noticed a few Reds following Rolen's lead and are sporting some scruff.

Kip Wells cannot be stopped.

Kc61
09-05-2009, 10:03 PM
Wells with a HBP with two out. Gets out of it with Phillips catching a short fly ball.

Could be that Wells will end his night after six shutout innings. Herrera was warming. We'll see.

Very nice outing by Wells so far. He's had trouble finding the plate against some guys, but has come back strong every time. Has some juice on the ball. Not a bad emergency pitcher.

KoryMac5
09-05-2009, 10:03 PM
Suprised the Braves haven't tried to deal Chipper. He looks more and more like a DH. I suppose his contract makes it hard.

BYU's lucky day as Bradford is out with a hurt throwing shoulder. Big blow to the Sooners.

KoryMac5
09-05-2009, 10:13 PM
Massett on for Wells.

KoryMac5
09-05-2009, 10:15 PM
Wlad got lucky on that one.

KoryMac5
09-05-2009, 10:16 PM
Infante doubles, both batters have hit the ball hard off Massett.

After a Braves double, Stubbs makes an outstanding catch against the wall. He is a gifted outfielder.

Larry is 8 for his last 66. That is Willy T bad. 1,2,3 for Arthur.

Uh-Oh Dusty is busy with pen and paper in the Reds dugout.

That is his biggest fault with me, he seems unable to allow good things to keep going if they don't fall into some pattern he likes. teh dust makes too many moves sometimes that seem to have no reason behind them, taking out a pitcher who is rolling, not playing matchups, just weird stuff every once in a while.

Reds win again!!??? I've been flipping back and forth between the football and this game all night. WOW. Nice job guys!! :jump:

And even better....Jim Day just pulled Joey aside for the post game interview! That may be my favorite part of the night, LOL :laugh:

KoryMac5
09-05-2009, 10:54 PM
Reds playing a good brand of baseball. Good pitching, solid D, and timely hitting. Nice to be able to watch this than what we were seeing a few weeks ago.

HeatherC1212
09-05-2009, 10:57 PM
Just once I'd like to see Joey be a little more relaxed during a post game interview but I think the fact that he takes this game and his job so seriously is what makes him so great. That was a nice post game interview and it was great to hear him give props to his teammates instead of saying much about his HR. He's such a good guy and I really hope he's a Red for a LONG time. :thumbup:

Time to head back to the football. Great job Reds!! :D

On a day when you couldn't pick up a paper without it being full of football, the Reds continue their impressive streak. Today, in Hampton, GA, all the talk was about SEC football and there was not only a Braves game, but also a NASCAR race going on both days. I could care less about football, so it tickles me that the Reds are making things interesting late in the season. It's like we traded in the old 78 Pinto for an 05 Mustang. The old one was pitiful, but ownership kept trying to get it to run. When the Pinto breaks down, a move has to be made and everyone is surprised at the result.

Look at the positive changes:

SS - Janish for Gonzalez - Janish hits marginally better, but his fielding is superior
3B - Rolen for Ecarnacion - All the differene in the world. Kudos to Jocketty
LF - Hariston for Gomes/Nix/Balentein - What did they see in Hariston?
CF - Stubbs for Taveras - Stubbs hits better and is a gazelle in the field.

Just a very pleasant change. And one that's working. Better late than never I guess. We just might life miserable for the leaders the rest of the way.

P.S. What's up with Kip Wells. Three starts and 17 innings later, he's given up 5 runs for an ERA of 3.18. Really makes Owings look like chopped liver as a 5th starter.

Having a solid defense does funny things to a pitcher...First Lehr, now Wells; I'd have never given this team a chance with those two pitching, but both of them are pitching aggressively and trusting their defense. Baseball is one crazy game, you never know what can happen. The Braves better bring their bats tomorrow if they want to avoid a sweep...Cueto is looking more like his earlier self after his short break. On our side, we'll get Tim Hudson...fortunately for us it's only his second start of the season and he gave up 6 hits in 5 innings the first time out. I think he's on a pitch count, so hopefully the Reds will work a few deep counts and get into the bullpen early. :thumbup:
GO REDS!! ...or whoever these guys are. :D

I'd suggest that the one place Baker has done an admirable job is handling the bullpen.

The strength of the team all year, Baker has put the right people in at the right time and gotten good results from everyone.

I believe the Reds haven't lost with a 9th inning lead for over 80 games going back to last year. The continue to be the majors only team to accomplish that feat this year.

I think that some posters are more guilty of overthinking this one than Baker.
