Reds manager Dusty Baker has already said Scott Rolen will be rested in a day-game-after-night-game situation and that Todd Frazier will start at third base. The move is somewhat curious as in 12 plate appearances against Vogelsong, Scott Rolen is hitting .400 with a double, a triple, a homer and six RBIs.
Keep the momentum rolling, Homer.
Easy inning for Bailey. 8 pitches, 7 strikes. Two ground balls and one strike out.
Vogelsang impressive early. One grounder and two Ks.
Homer sets down the first five in order, followed by back-to-back two-out singles. Grounder to Votto puts out the fire.
Bailey's control seems to be improving yearly.
His stuff, OTOH, seems to be heading in the opposite direction.
I still can't figure how a guy that looks off in the distance at the point of release has any kind of control.
Phillips and Bruce each single to start the second.
Heisey pops up for the first out.
Frazier walks on four pitches to load the bases for Mesoraco.
Sac fly for Mesoraco. 1-0.
Bailey with a line drive single. Yes. 2-0.
Cozart grounds out to his opposite number.
Giants tie it on 2 singles, a walk, an error, and a sacrifice fly.
Heisey just missed that one...a long out to center.
Frazier singles, Mes up
Mes walks on four pitches; two on one out for Homer
