Re: Bronson's Red's Debut: Game Thread for 3/25 vs. the Twinkies
The King of Cornrows goes for the Reds in the Top of the 1st.
1.) Tyner leads things off, and Bronson starts his Reds career with a strike. Woo Hoo. Tyner pops up to Felipe Lopez. Bronson comments that in Boston, that would've been a strikeout.
2.) Luis Rodrieguez up next and gets a base hit into left field. Bronson comments that Manny Ramirez would've gotten to that hit and thrown the runner out at first. 1 on, 1 out.
3.) Jason Kubel hits a deep rocket over Griffey's head to the wall. Rodrieguez comes around to the 3rd. Marty rips on Felipe Lopez and Tony Womack for not cutting the throw off. I choose to blame Womack. Bronson comments that Nomar would've made the cut off. 1st and 2nd with 1 out.
4.) Morneau continues the hit parade, knocking a base hit. A run scores to make the score Twinkies 1, Reds 0. Bronson mutters something about Sam Adams and Marathons. 1st and 3rd with 1 out.
5.) Glenn Williams strikes out and will, no doubt, be teased mercilessly for not getting a base hit off Bronson Arroyo despite being a lefty (that's 5 consecutive lefties, for those of you counting at home). 1st and 3rd with 2 outs.
6.) Rob Brown pops out to Encarnacion to end the inning. Bronson trots eagerly back to the dugout to listen to the Dropkick Murphys on his iPod and ignore his new teammates.
After .5, Twinks 1 Reds 0.
23 Years and Counting...
