I thought Harang looked good too. Throwing 93-94 is huge. Also, nice break on his breaking stuff. He missed where Hernandez was targeting the pitch on the Pujols HR....fat pitch.

We may notice Harang's breaking ball working a lot better now than in the dry air of Arizona.

Votto singles on a grounder in the hole between 1st and the second basemen

Phillips gets squeezed on a second strike (low and it was called a strike) battles back to 3-2 (impressive), fouls off a pitch, then grounds to second on a ball up. Looked like he slipped on the swing. 3 out

This game is right on target.

Harang behind due to homers allowed. Everyone says he looks good. If he loses, W-L record won't mean anything.

Reds only hit by Votto. Started game with two outs, Votto hit, another out. Just like the Wily T days and the days before that.
