Yep, Great American gets bashed a lot for being a "bandbox" and what not, but it's actually a really cool park. Not a bad seat in the house, and the view/atmosphere on the boat deck is something every Reds fan should experience at least once.

Hanny with a single over 2nd. 2 down and Stubbs coming up.

Nice ab there. Got in the hole and worked it back to full and battled til he got a pitch he could handle.

Good AB by Hanigan followed by one from Stubbs.

I just don't get this out of Bronson. It never seems to fail that he struggles the most with the guy hitting the worst in the lineup. Koyie hill...hitting .200...nearly walks him..then a single.
