Needed that one. With Pittsburgh and St. Louis seemingly never losing, this was a shot in the arm.
"You only have to bat a thousand in two things; flying and heart transplants. Everything else you can go 4-for-5."
"I talked to an advance scout that told me if Joey Votto and Albert Pujols were on the same team he'd advise his team to do the unthinkable...pitch around Votto to get to Pujols." - Buster Olney, ESPN
Chapman didn't look right. Seemed he was wincing after every pitch.
"And this one belongs to the Reds."
Would have loved to see Leake get the win and go to 8-3. It was a nice bonus to beat an ex-Cardinal pitcher, though.

"What would your feelings be, seriously, if your cat or your dog began to talk to you, and to dispute with you in human accents? You would be overwhelmed with horror. I am sure of it. And if the roses in your garden sang a weird song, you would go mad." --Arthur Machen
Great to see Devin come through and give this team a quick lift. Something like that has to turn them around and give them some much needed confidence.
