Reds already up 1-0 in the 2nd on Stubbs 8th HR.

8 dingers in less than 40 games? Nope, no power there. :O)

Just get comfortable on those breaking pitches and I think we've got a keeper.

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 08:44 PM
Stubbs CF
Nix LF
Votto 1B
Phillips 2B
Francisco 3B
Bruce RF
Hanigan C
Janish SS
Arroyo P

Not a bad lineup there IMO. I like Janish in there, but I like him low in the order. Nix in the 2 hole is intriguing.

It'll be interesting to see what Francisco does with a start at 3rd.

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 08:49 PM
9 straight retired by Arroyo. He's been about as solid as you can get lately.

And Juan made his first play at third. Looked pretty smooth. It wasn't tough...but hey, it's his first action. The nerves have got to be pretty shaky.

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 08:53 PM
Make that 2 for 2 for Stubbs. Linedrive leadoff single to center.

Thanks for the PBP tonight since we don't have this game on TV. :)

Nice to see Drew hit another dinger and I'm always happy to see Joey get a solid hit in his first at bat. Hopefully this is a good game for the Reds tonight. :)

BTW-I met Joey earlier today at an appearance near me and he was BEYOND wonderful. :) He was very personable and friendly and he seems genuinely thankful to do what he does for a living. He was very gracious to all the fans and was so cute with the little kids who were there. It was a great experience, one I know I would NEVER get at Redsfest, and I'm very glad I went to meet him today. I got a picture with him too which makes the whole thing even better! :D

The Marlins announcers speak highly of the Reds. Say they're a much better team than their record.

Cantu with a lead off HR to tie the game at 1-1. Just cut it inside the foul pole.

If that's all Bronson gives up tonight, I can live with that even though it still sucks. ;)

Cody Ross grounds out to Janish. Let's hope that was just a one pitch thing and Bronson's back on track.

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 09:25 PM
Btw Heather, that's a nice pic of you and Joey. Is he that tall or are you a bit height-challenged? Just curious. Because he looks freaking huge in that pic.

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 09:27 PM
Foul tip strikeout on Paulino for the 3rd out. 1-1 after 4 1/2

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 09:30 PM
A quick 1 pitch out to Janish. Pop out to Johnson in foul ground. Arroyo & Stubbs due up

Nice snag & throw by Ramirez to sit Stubbs down. 1-2-3 again. Nolasco getting into a groove.

I am all of 5'1" tall and Joey is 6'3", so yes, he is freaking huge next to me and when I told him, "Wow, you are very tall!" before this picture, he laughed quite a bit right along with me because it was pretty funny. :laugh: And thanks for the compliment. I was very happy the picture turned out so well. I was mainly worried about my part of the picture though since Joey usually looks good, LOL ;)

Maybin, Nolasco & Coghlan due up

Sharp comebacker to Bronson. 1 down.

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 09:37 PM
Strikeout #4 for Bronson. Nolasco not much of a hitter it seems.

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 09:38 PM
Brewers & Astros tied 1-1 in the 6th
Padres beat the Bucs 2-1 earlier
Cards beat the Cubs 2-1 earlier

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 09:40 PM
I've been VERY impressed by Coghlan this series. Shot a double down the line for his 7th hit of the series...ground rule variety

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 09:42 PM
Bronson offers a 5 pitch free pass to Johnson. 1st & 2nd, 2 down with Hanley coming up.

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 09:45 PM
Man! Where was THAT pitch! Should've been strike 3 there.

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 09:45 PM
Ramirez grounds out to Francisco to end the threat. 1-1 it remains.

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 09:46 PM
Hopefully somebody can take over PbP for a bit. I'll be back.

"Johnny Bench has activated himself for the game and just struck out.

Kind of a let down after all that.

YESSIRREE! Juan to Brandon to Joey!

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 10:02 PM
That's 7.0 ip for Bronson with 4 hits, 1 run, 1 bb and 5 punchouts. 101 pitches. Solid shot at the complete game I'd think. We know the pen could use a day off.

Great picture, Heather. Get it made into an 8X10 and take it to the ball park for an autograph.

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 10:04 PM
Wow, Juan looks pretty bad on the slow stuff & breaking pitches. Reallllly bad. K's on 4 pitches. #3 for the night.

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 10:06 PM
*sigh* And now Bruce K's again (2nd of the night). 10th strikeout for Nolasco. That's completely unacceptable. Still under 90 pitches too.

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 10:08 PM
Ramon Ramirez warming up in the pen.

Hanigan! :jump:

#3 on the year! 2-1 Redlegs! He got ALL of that one. LOL...it's also his 10th RBI. :O)

Tony Cloninger
09-19-2009, 10:09 PM
They just have some weak swings....like they are not picking hum up well at all.

Also bothered me that Stubbs on 1st... 2 and 0 on Nix and he swings at a ball and then swings again when he could have let Stubbs steal very easily. What good is trying to get a running game going if you are not going to let him steal the base.

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 10:10 PM
Ryan can hear Ramon Hernandez's footsteps creeping up behind him. :O)

Fwiw, Nolasco is already on the way to 200 k's and the Reds lineup is just the type to help him get there. But Nolasco can have all the k's he wants if Arroyo can get the win.

HeatherC1212
09-19-2009, 10:11 PM
I had Nolasco on a Yahoo fantasy baseball team a couple years ago and I remember him getting a lot of K's when he's going good. I'm not horribly surprised by tonight.

HR Hanigan!! :jump:

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 10:11 PM
Janish with a shallow pop out to Right to end the inning. But they got the job done. 2-1 Reds heading to the 8th.

I wasn't trying to say that Ricky isn't a strikeout pitcher. Just that he's got way too many, way too early in the game, on way too few pitches. Somebody needs to stand up in the dug out and tell the hitters to be more patient at the plate.

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 10:13 PM
Paulino with a leadoff double. And he's quickly pinch-run for....can't tell who it is. (Bonifacio)

Crud. 2 run dinger from PH'er Gload. 3-2 Fish

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 10:18 PM
I was just going to say that I don't like what I see in the bullpen when the lead evaporated. Herrera warming up. He's not a good pitcher to come in after the soft-tossing Arroyo. Just a bad mix IMO.

HeatherC1212
09-19-2009, 10:19 PM
Rats. :( That's on Bronson tonight if he takes a loss though.

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 10:20 PM
Coghlan grounds out to third for the 2nd out.

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 10:21 PM

True, but a little bit of offense would've helped. There's nothing wrong with allowing 3 runs in 8 innings. Most pitchers win that game.

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 10:23 PM
Johnson flies out to short to end the inning. 3-2 Marlins heading to the bottom of the 8th.

Arroyo, Stubbs, Nix due up. Who's your pinch hitter here? I'm guessing Hernandez.

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 10:25 PM
Sutton pinchhitting. Nearly a double...but a nice play by Coghlan. 1 down.

No staff has an ERA below three, so you must score at least three to tie. In most cases you give up four, so you must score five. Unfortunately, this team is not capable of consistently scoring more than 3 runs. Pitching and defense is great unless your offense is so horrible that you can't score runs--i.e. the Reds.

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 10:25 PM
There's a new pitcher but I can't tell who yet.

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 10:26 PM
I think it's Sanches on the bump. Stubbs up.

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 10:27 PM
Stubbs draws the walk. He's looking more and more comfortable at the plate from what I can tell.

Almost half of his k's are from Arroyo and Francisco. Francisco has a reputation for k's. And Bruce is a work in progress that, yes, does have to improve but I wouldn't expect it to happen overnight. We can get on Phillips for his 2 k's but why? It's one game. I'll agree that approach is something that the hitters have to work on if they want to end the losing season streak next season but I'm just not gonna get too hung up on this game.

_Sir_Charles_

Fair enough. I guess it was the combination of everything that irritated me. 10 k's before the 7th inning and under 80 pitches. That ain't too good.

But regardless, Nolasco's pitched a VERY nice game. Heck, so did Bronson for that matter.

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 10:30 PM

I'll agree with that. Some good pitching on both sides tonight. Just need the offense to deliver just a couple more runs.

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 10:34 PM
Ramon with a little chin music to Uggla. Comes right back and strikes him out. Nice inning by Ramirez.

I really thought he'd be a cog in the rotation heading into the season, or at least the long man in the pen. He kind of got lost in the mix this year.

HeatherC1212
09-19-2009, 10:35 PM
Come on Reds...time for some offense! Can't argue that Bronson pitched a great game but I'm sure he's kicking himself over the HR in his last inning. :(

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 10:36 PM
Alright Heather, start rubbing that picture for good luck. Votto up.

_Sir_Charles_

HEY! Seeing eye single for Votto. Leadoff single. Now let's get him in!

_Sir_Charles_
09-19-2009, 10:39 PM
Phillips strikes out looking. Close pitch....might've been inside. But with 2 strikes, you've got to protect the plate. It was definitely close enough to swing at it.

_Sir_Charles_

I think I probably would've left Bruce in there, but it's hard to argue against Rolen. Bruce has more pop and he hits fastballs well. Oh well. Nicely played ballgame on both sides IMO.

It's hard to say in retrospect but Rolen usually gets a big hit when you need one so I don't blame Dusty for going with him at that time. The Reds are definitely showing that none of these contending teams are going to just walk into Cincy and get a win without a fight. That's good to see. Let's get the series split tomorrow. :)

Yeah, I agree. I don't disagree with Dusty there. But considering the situation, the young kid usually doesn't feel the pressure as much and a big hit there can really turn him around. But Bruce's been struggling and Rolen's pretty dependable with pitchers from both sides. Like I said, I don't disagree with it...but I PERSONALLY would've taken the other path.

Regardless, some nice pitching by the Reds tonight. Stubbs showing some MORE pop and patience at the dish. And Hanigan showing everyone that he's not going to just HAND the starters role back over to Hernandez. Double-digit RBI'S baby! hehe. :O)

My wife and I were at the game tonight and I was amazed at Stubbs' power. He didn't even get all of that ball.

Disappointing game with the loss, but a beautiful night for a game.
