Navarro C
Leake P

Good thing hitting Freese got him out of the lineup, bad thing is they have another .300 hitter to use in his place. But best news is no Molina who is forcing his way into the MVP debate and is killing us at GABP.

1. Jay CF .314
2. Carpenter, 3B .302
3. Holliday LF .302
4. Craig 1B .318
5. Beltran RF .276
6. Schumaker 2B .309
7. Cruz C .232
8. Furcal SS .269
9. Garcia P .269

Other news we knocked All-Star Lance Lynn out of the rotation as they are moving Joe Kelly back to rotation.

HometownHero
08-25-2012, 04:05 PM
VS Garcia
Cozart 3-for-8
Stubbs 7-for-23. 2B and HR
Phillips 5-for-26, 2B and HR
Ludwick 0-for-7
Frazier 1-for-2
Bruce 4-for-21
Rolen 3-for-16
Navarro NA
Leake NA

VS Leake
Jay 1-for-8, 2B
Carpenter NA
Holliday 5-for-11
Craig 0-for-3
Beltran 1-for-12, HR
Schumaker 3-for-6, 2B and HR
Cruz NA
Furcal 3-for-11
Garcia NA

Molina is 4-for-12 with a 2B and HR and Freese is 4-for-8 with a 2B and HR so its extra nice they are out of the lineup.

Leake gets through the first unscathed minus a single.

HometownHero

Good top of the first for the Reds

HometownHero
08-25-2012, 04:23 PM
No balls out of the infield in the home half, need to get some balls in the air off this guy and rattle his cage as he has a hard time on the road.

Who Dey Time
08-25-2012, 04:25 PM
Quick top of 2nd. Still scoreless.

HometownHero
08-25-2012, 04:26 PM
Nice turn, their order isn't as imposing when they take out two big bats. Mike needs to not left the reserves beat him and he could be OK if we get him some runs.

Who Dey Time
08-25-2012, 04:33 PM
Kick save and a beauty by Craig. Scoring chance for Rolen with 2 out.

HometownHero
08-25-2012, 04:34 PM
That was a Cardinals type play for sure on Bruce taking a potential double away with a shin bone on a liner you missed.

Who Dey Time
08-25-2012, 04:35 PM
Rolen walks. Up to Navarro.

Who Dey Time

No dice. Navarro K's. Headed to the 3rd.

Another solid inning for Leake. Zeros going to bottom 3rd.

how long is Dusty going to keep Mr. K batting 2nd? i hoped he would have been
moved by now.

HometownHero
08-25-2012, 05:01 PM
I wish we had the BABIP luck the Cardinals have. They lead the majors by 6 points at .319 while we came in at .298. They have a bloop just over 2nd and a ball under Todd's glove we have 2 liners to 3rd and a ball on the 1B's leg.

HometownHero
08-25-2012, 05:02 PM
Last two balls hit to the same spot, one was a out the other a double.

How they've allowed it to happen this long is one of the most absurd things I've ever witnessed in MLB.

Big-time jump there. Tougher play than usual considering he had just chased one into the corner.

Stubbs continues to play because we don't have a better CF option. And no, Heisey isn't the answer either. As for him continuing to bat second, that's all about Dusty.

Sac fly. Close at the plate. 1-1.

HometownHero
08-25-2012, 05:23 PM
Too bad that throw wasn't on the money he would been out but now they move up the runners with it hitting Cruz.

Jdattilo
08-25-2012, 05:23 PM
Doesn't Leake back up at home on that?

The Rage
08-25-2012, 05:24 PM
Mano, Leake and Bailey really give up the hits. It is a consistant pain to watch people on base against them so much.

Who Dey Time
08-25-2012, 05:24 PM
Doesn't Leake back up at home on that?

He did but ball kicked away to other end.

Who Dey Time
08-25-2012, 05:27 PM
Leake gets out of it with only 1.

Could have been worse

40YrRedsFan
08-25-2012, 05:28 PM
Leake gets out of it with only 1.

But he's already given up 7 hits, and Holliday smoked that one to Cozart

I'm just saying he is getting hit...but I guess Leake always does.

HometownHero
08-25-2012, 05:33 PM
More hard hit outs

texasdave
08-25-2012, 05:34 PM
Close your eyes and swing hard, Drew. 12Ks in the last five games. What can it hurt? He can't hit with his eyes open.

Surprise everybody.

Stubbs on a 5 K run!

40YrRedsFan

Headed to the 6th 1-1.

texasdave
08-25-2012, 05:37 PM
If he hadn't missed that time in June he would be well on his way to 200 whiffs again. And let's get him the most at-bats. Now that is thinking outside the box. It isn't smart. But it is thinking outside the box.

Red Raindog

When Votto comes back -- can there be any other choice but to move BP to the 2 hole?

Who Dey Time

Big inning here. If Leake can shut them down you get the big boys up in the bottom half.

HometownHero

That was #6 for Drew

Yes. BP 1st, Cozart 2nd.

Beltron has really fallen off.

Nice job in the sixth by Leake.

08-25-2012, 05:43 PM
Leake gets em in order. Strong outing today for him.

HometownHero
08-25-2012, 05:43 PM
Beltron has really fallen off.

He's playing with some type of hand injury. That's what sucks about them playing better in August as Beltran and Holliday have both been terrible this month.

Red Raindog
08-25-2012, 05:44 PM
Yes. BP 1st, Cozart 2nd.

I can live with that --- if Stubbs is sent out there -- I may become an addict of something mind numbing

this is the 4th year in a row that Stubbs' BA has dropped

HometownHero
08-25-2012, 05:44 PM
Nice inning now lets get some offense going, been stagnate since we beat up on Lynn.

40YrRedsFan
08-25-2012, 05:44 PM
13 of Drew's last 18 outs have came via the Strike Outs.

and Dusty continues to play him........Heisey can't be that bad. Has Heisey ever had the chance to play for and extended period, like 10 games in a row?
What does Dusty have against him?

texasdave
08-25-2012, 05:46 PM
According to baseball-prospectus.com the ML average line drive percentage (including pitchers!) is 19%. Drew Stubbs line drive percentage this year is 13%. Just a quality, quality hitter.

If you're Stubbs you get five more starts.

Most likely, or he will sit one game and be right back in there the next game

Yadi kills us since that brawl but Phillips does the same to St. Louis.

He owns them at home but not in St Louis as he's just .262 there since.

That's surprising. It seems like he's hitting every time we play them.

When he does get a hit there it tends to be a XBH so maybe that make it seem more impressive but his OBP is under .300 there since the brawl, but he murders them at home.

Blew them away!

Big win to damper their hopes of division changing sweep. Mike had a good solid start despite tons of hits. Would be sweet to beat them tomorrow with their Ace going and start them off 1-2 on a 10 game road trip and get both games in the standings we lost to them right back.

Wish we could have held our leads the last two days we could been on the verge of warping this deal up early.
