    Bases drunk with Reds, no one out, for Phillips.

    Had Phillips played last night, the Reds might have won.

    Bruce DP, just so the Reds fans won't get too cocky.

    First pitch hacking against a guy you've never seen who can't find the plate is always a bad idea in my book.

    Bruce scorched the ball, but Pirates had him,played perfectly, SS almost on the second base bag. That goes through, game could be a blow out.

    It was a hard hit grounder. But it was a routine double play ball, I wouldn't get excited that Bruce is "scorching" the ball.

    Bruce's opposite field hitting is particularly helpful on the road. Traditionally, Jay hits much better at home.

    At GABP, I hope he still pulls the ball on occasion, would hate to see him lose too much power by his new approach.

    There's no doubt that we simply haven't been getting the breaks in this series.

    To be fair, Jay smoked that one. Bucs defense aligned perfectly though.

    Oops, 757690 had that one covered. :O)
