Interesting 12th inning but Cordero was able to get out of it without blowing the lead.

Absolutely. A week ago, we would have been ecstatic. Today, it feels like sweet, sweet relief.

Is Phillips hurt, or was he just removed for rest when the Reds had the 10-1 lead?

He was hit on the hand by a pitch. I'm pretty sure he could have stayed in the game, but Dusty probably figured with the big lead to be cautious and take him out. I'd have done the same thing myself given the score at the time.

Tomorrow's off day is huge. Let's hope Phillips is good to go Friday night, and let's hope the boys are ready to roll again.

One of the more frustrating games I have ever seen, but I'll take it.

In a sick kind of way, I'm almost kind of glad they beat them like that. Get their hopes hope and yank their heart out.

I despise that Giant ballclub.

Left to take my son to soccer practice when it was 10-3 with two Giants runners on.

Watched the phone with the updates with mounting horror.

Got back home in time for the last at-bat of the evil Torres.

All in all, bizarre. And yet, oddly satisfying.

Just win, baby?

A needed win. I've never seen a team feast on pitching like the Giants did this series. Over the three games, they scored 38 runs and 53 hits. That's averaging almost 13 runs and 18 hits a game. The Reds held their own, scoring 19 runs on 32 hits, but the Giants were just unconscious. We averaged about 6 runs and 11 hits, good enough to sweep most days. The problem was the pitching. Reds starters only pitched 10 innings (about 3 innings each), allowing 21 hits and 17 runs. The comination of Wood, Volquez, and Bailey had a combined ERA of 15.30!

Were it not for the 4 innings today from CoCo and Masset, the bullpen would be worse. In 19 innings, they allowed 32 hits and 21 runs for an ERA of 9.94.

I'm glad they got it out of their systems. Or at least I hope it's out. If not, we're in for a long,long two months.

FSN showed a quick shot of Phillips at first base. He took his batting glove off and there was a large welt on the top/side of his hand.

Also, Nix needs to be replaced and possibly even Cairo. The Reds took their lumps in more ways than one this series.

We were with friends and I kept checking my phone, knowing I was being rude, and that AB, it was interminable and I was thinking, "what can this mean? what is happening?" I haven't read the thread or looked at the highlights, but did he foul off a ton of pitches?
