I guess Dusty would rather avoid testing Marshall in this situation. So he seems to be going with Hoover.
JJ is overworked, hope he's on today.
Too bad Reds didn't score there. That's why the bunt play is so controversial. I can't criticize giving up Cozart with a sac bunt, but he didn't get the chance to get a big hit.
Hoover in for the 11th
For those of you who are always asking for an 11 pitcher staff, this is why you don't do it.
Not a ton of options in the pen. Hope Mr. Choo just ends this next half inning.
If Marshall is still not available he should have been on the DL. This is the second time they have been short handed in an extra inning game.
Ugh. Dinger for Desmond.
94 and winning the division and the NLCS but falling in the WS to Toronto in 6
94 Reds / 86 Cards / 85 Pirates / 76 Cubs / 72 Brewers
That was a bomb.
Desmond with an upper deck shot. 6-5 Nationals
No idea why Hoover was pitching today
Most Vottomatic Player
Line out to left.
Hoover has pitched in 4 of the 5 games. What are you doing Dusty? Where is Marshall? If he can't pitch here then DL him. It's not that hard.
I miss Adam Dunn.
