Three DPs for Bruce in a single game. That was a really nice turn.

Bruce grounds into the 3rd DP of the night all started by LaRoche. 6-2 Reds mid 9th.

3 DP's for Bruce. This kid is amazing and frustrating at the same time. I have to wonder...

Reds up 6-2 going to the bottom of the 9th.

Might not have been enough time after Rolen AB to warm anyone else up....

Oh no.

I go for 3.

Yep, how dare he hit a hard groundball up by 4 runs.

Funny, Rolen did the same thing, but it found a hole. He's god, Bruce is an idiot. Both took the same amount of skill.

Codero's fastballs and nibbling get him in trouble but this is the Diamondback team. Much easier.

Gotta wonder if batters that strike out a lot get a bigger strike zone from the umps.

Coco is finding out how much easier life can be with the tying run sitting with a newspaper on the hole instead of in the hole.

dsmith421

If it's ever going to happen, it's going to be against Womackstro Taverson.

Coco should always pitch with a four run lead. He's found his niche tonight.

Bruce must be the unluckiest player ever.
Plenty of RBI chances this season and not many RBIs to show for it.

I like Jay Bruce but I'm done saying he is unlucky.

Cedric

Bruce isn't just unlucky. He is pressing still and swinging at 1-0 pitches at his ankles.

His pitch recognition just isn't there right now.

WVRedsFan

Great game and one that was in doubt until the end. Good baseball. The heroes were Rolen and Janish and the goats were Bruce and...well, there were no goats.

Isn't it great that the this game we love allows us to get down two runs and not doubt that this team will come back? We get sweeped by the evil Cardinals, sweep the Fish and win against the D-Backs in the first game. We're back where we started and all is well. What if we win even one of those games against the Evil Empire?

I'm enthused and ready for tomorrow night. If this old body can stay awake.

Agreed.

I just find it funny that Rolen is clutch, and Bruce called anti-clutch because Rolen found the hole, and Bruce arguably hit his harder. Bruce has lots of issues right now, it just seemed like forced criticism.

In the micro, that's not necessarily inaccurate to point out. But we're dealing in big picture here, and Scott Rolen is having a very good year--Jay Bruce is not.

Bruce, even with the few days he got warmed up a bit, is working on a sub 600 OPS in the last 6 weeks. He's been pretty bad. We're beyond criticism as a result of a few unlucky DPs.

I don't care what anyone says - and there were plenty who, after the debacle last week vs the Cards, said the Reds were imposter's and on the downward spiral - this team is resilient, has character, and is going to be in it till the end. Enjoy folks!

My wife couldn't get to sleep last night, so she went downstairs to sleep. I woke up around 3:15 a.m. and reached over to grab my cell phone and check the score. Very gratifying to see our win and the Cardinals loss. Then I went back to sleep until my 5:15 a.m. wake up time.

I'll admit...I did the same last night...only around 2 am. :O)
