Re: 03/23 Wednesday Reds/Padres
Phillips leads off the third with a bullet through the right side for a single.
(Phillips should lead off. Bruce moves up to the second spot and Stubbs drops to sixth or even seventh in the order.)
Phillips moves up to second on a single by Renteria.
Hermida grounds into a force at second. Runners on the corners. Padre shortstop on crack on that play. Instead of firing on to first to complete the double play he wheels and fires to third. A run is saved only because it hit the screen and rebounded right back to the third baseman. Brantley feels it was a tailor-made double play in the making.
Fred Lewis being Fred Lewis takes a called third strike. Lewis now 0 for 2 dropping his average to .158. Making a strong case for not making the club.
Heisey pops up to the catcher as the Reds waste a nice opportunity.
2-2 after 2 1/2.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
