From Mark Sheldon:
*Shin-Soo Choo watch: Choo had one tough play in the game and it came in the first inning when he ran and caught Jason Giambi’s long drive to right-center field. For the second day in a row, Choo started the Reds’ first inning off by getting on base. This time, it was a lined-single to right field followed by a stolen base. He’s been on base three times in two games and scored three runs.
“That’s what he’s here for. We like that,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “Imagine if he gets on like this the year Brandon is going to have, Joey, and Ludwick and Bruce and Frazier. It would be exciting.”
