    Feldman just cannot throw a strike to Hanigan once he falls behind 3-0. Can't believe he threw strikes there, including the very hittable home run pitch.

    Make Hanigan reach for one. If you walk him, you walk him, the pitcher is on deck.

    I've seen this time and again this year. A walk isn't a good outcome but sometimes it's not such a big deal. Just hard to believe he threw that pitch, especially at GABP. Maybe he just missed his spot, I don't know.

    Feldman missed his spot badly and left the ball on the inside corner, waist high. Major leaguers hit that pitch out every time.

    Well, if it was just a bad pitch, so be it. I would have just made Hanigan reach. I wouldn't have come near the plate.

    Cozart is starting to get on base much more frequently. Hopefully a good stretch for him. I guess that one was an error? Maybe a hit, but he's getting on which is nice.

    Wow. That stat blows me away. Last Red to win the batting title was Pete in 73?!? Is that really right?

    Even Joey's outs look like hits. Nice catch by right fielder.

    I would have Cozart try to steal second now.

    #ScoreboardStumper: Since 1980, 5 players have hit 3 home runs in a game against the Cubs while playing for the #Reds. Who are they?

    I know Stubbs did it at Wrigley and I was at GABP when Votto did it. I'd guess Dunn, maybe Griffey, and...Kevin Mitchell

    Phillips just thrown out on a drive up the middle and that's the end of the inning.

    Hal "My Pal"* Morris came down to the last game of the season grinding it out against Gwynn one year if my memory serves me right.
