This is one of those games Reds can't expect to win and wouldn't be a tragedy to lose. Reds would have a split in SF which is good.
Still, it would be a GREAT game to win. Let's hope Bronson is on like last time, but gets relieved in due time. Reds bullpen is well rested after two consecutive complete games.
Todd Frazier can play 1B. Jeepers
IMO Frazier will get some starts at 1st this week if Joey needs some more days off. Does anyone know how long they think Votto will be out?
Cozart flies out on the first pitch.
Vogelsong has just as much of a gripe at not making the All Star team as Cueto does.
Stubbs grounds out sharply to second. 2 down.
Brandon grounds out to 3rd. 1-2-3 go the Reds.
Cards over the Pirates 5-4 in the sixth.
Blanco pops out to Cairo in foul ground. 1 down.
BB to Theriot
Frazier is playing third, not Rolen, who is a "late scratch."
Back spasms for Rolen
Ground out to short. Theriot to second.
Rolen was scratched due to back spasms.
I've got 3 screaming girls running around me, so if somebody wants to take the pbp, feel free. I know I'm going to miss some stuff.
I didn't miss THAT though. Great play by Frazier at the hot corner to end the inning.
