Harang pitching against the Cubs and he's not facing Zambrano? I can't remember the last time I saw that. It seems like those 2 are always matched up. Let's hope Aaron can keep up his rejuvenated pitching.

Cubs 1st

Theriot Ks swinging on a 93 mph fastball well placed on the outside corner.
Fukudome Ks looking on a 92 mph fastball.
Lee Ks looking on a 93 mph fastball.

Harang cruises through the 1st with 13 pitches.


Cool night in Cincinnati. C.Trent says gametime temp is 51.

Reds 1st

Cabrerra lines a single to center.
Phillips lines the 1st pitch right to Byrd in center.
Votto HRs to dead center....SWEET: Fireworks already!
Rolen Ks on a check swing.
Gomes lines a single to left.
Bruce pounds a hard grounder the other way, ARam dives and gets it, but the throw is late: infield single.
Stubbs Ks looking at a 90 mph fastball.

Gorzelanny threw 23 pitches in the first.

Reds 2, Cubs 0.

OK, I've gotta admit something. As the resident Joey Votto fangirl here, I totally didn't realize how well he was hitting lately. I knew he was doing pretty well but he's been doing better than I thought. Thanks Joey! :D

Jay Bruce just made one of the best plays I've ever seen a right fielder make. Aramis Ramirez shot to Jay's left near the line, Bruce fields on the run, and GUNS it from not so shallow right field to the plate and easily nails Marlon Byrd.

Just awesome.

Byrd singles to right, and moves to 2nd on a wild pitch.
Ramirez lines a single to right, Bruce cuts it off, and throws it on the fly to Hanigan to nail Byrd trying to score.
Soriano lines a single to left off Rolen's glove.
Soto flies out to Bruce on the warning track, Ramirez tags and goes to 3rd.

Aaron's not going inside and outside like his last outing. He's starting on one side of the dish and staying there. He's going up and down in the zone, just not in and out. I think the in and out with the fastball makes his slider better.

Lee flies out to Stubbs to end the inning.

Yeah it is. But it can easily fixed by pulling the handle towards the ball. Makes for a quicker swing for anyone. While his tallness does play a role, his shifting of weight is the biggest problem.

Pretty good assesment. He's also guilty of guessing quite often.

I used to think this was the case. But I don't think it really is. It does seem that way cause he looks fooled often. However, he looks fooled because his weight is distributed before his mind recognizes what was thrown. It's not the step that does it. It's his body coming forward at the same time.

Bruce Ks swinging at a high 90 mph fastabll.
Stubbs lines the 1st pitch just over Fukudone's glove for a double.
Hanigan is intentionally walked.
Dusty leaves Harang in (I disagree...)
On the 2nd pitch, Stubbs steals third. Harang Ks looking on a weak swing at a 78 mph breaking ball.

Gorzelanny at 100 pitches. He has struck out 9 Reds.

Cubs 7th:

Soriano Ks looking.
Soto Ks looking.
Castro doubles down the right field line.
Fontenot works Harang hard, fouling off 6 pitches, before walking on the 11th pitch of the plate appearance.
Dusty removes Aaron Harang, who leaves to a standing ovation.

Mike Lincoln in to pitch with 2 outs, and runners on 1st and 2nd.
Theriot nubs an infield single toward third that Lincoln can't handle.
Dusty pulls Lincoln.

Rhodes in with the bases loaded, two outs.
Xavier Nady, pinch hitting for Fukudome, walks in a run.
Lee bounces out to Rhodes.

Harang threw 121 pitches over 6 and 2/3 innings. He was still throwing 93 mph fastballs in the 7th. He struck out 9, walked 1, and gave up 7 hits and two earned runs.

Reds 3, Cubs 2.

The home plate ump tonight, Jerry Layne, has been giving both pitchers the corners. That has been a real factor in all the Ks looking.
