I completely forgot that Juan Francisco was picked up by the Crew. Playing first.
Votto draws a walk to continue the inning for Phillips.
I'd like to see the spray chart they're using for Votto here. Slight shift to the pull side. As much as he goes oppo...that's surprising.
Although, he DID go to the right side...walking there. :O)
Yikes. Votto gets picked off there, and that ends the inning.
St. Louis and Pittsburgh are already off to early leads.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
I think Votto needs a day off
And a bloop there to make it runners on 1st and 3rd. So no score there, still a chance for us to get out of this.
