It's stupendous because of HOW they won. With the exception of Votto (who is hurting), they all stepped up big time:
Stubbs! Go figure. Earned his salary this game.
Luddy -- wow!
Latos, who so wanted in this game once Cueto got hurt, and delivered bigtime
Dusty -- great moves; just reaffirms my already deep faith that 'dusty knows'
Broxton--the immaculate 3-2 to the corner
Chapman--held it together enough
The O--anytime the Reds get 5 or more runs, I'm ecstatic. And in a pitcher's park.
LOVED this game. For reasons way beyond the delightful bottom line outcome. Most significant Reds win since 10/20/90 imho. Hopefully they'll exceed it at the end of this month.
Wish the Nats luck tomorrow afternoon. Need them to take out STL for us.
Can't wait until tomorrow. How awesome it'd be if they take both from SF. Will sleep well.
