Re: Cactus League - Reds, Rangers 3/24
Well, it figures. I stop listening and the Reds score a bazillion runs.
Reds 8th - Burriss grounds out to the pitcher. Chris "King of the Pop Ups" pops up. Bruce triples into the right field corner. Robinson strikes out.
Cubs 8th - Frazier makes a fine backhanded stab of a ball headed down the line and throws out Starlin Castro. Vogelbach walks. Dave Sappelt lines a single to center. His second hit on the night. Schierholtz Ks. Candelario slaps one to short for out number three.
Reds 9th - Take a deep, deep breath. Frazier pops to first. Lutz follows with a liner to right for a double. Izturis, who has never hit like this in his entire career, ground-rule doubles home Lutz. Corky Miller rockets a single to left to plate Izturis. Chris Berset walks. Burriss reaches on an error by Candelerio at third as Corky touches home for the third run. Burriss steals second. Second and third now. Heisey's liner to left scores a fourth run. First and third. Bruce laces one to right to score a fifth run. Heisey moves over to third. Derrick Robinson walks and the bases are all red now. Devin Lohman's sac fly brings home a sixth run. Donald Lutz is up for the second time in the inning and leaves the yard. 9 runs have crossed the plate so far. Izturis lines a single to left. He moves to second on a wild pitch. Corky grounds out to end the inning.
Cubs 9th - Clay Hensley to close things out. Gonzalez lines to Robinson in center. One away. Zapata walks. A Clevenger single chases Zapata to third. Lillibridge pops to Lohman, who remained in the game at short. Hensley gets Starlin Castro to look at called third.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
