Just wanted to bring a bit of sunshine to the end of this thread.
Billy Hamilton for the second straight game, pinch ran for Ludwick, stole a base and scored an important run late in the game. Pretty awesome start to his MLB career.
"Man, the pitch looks fast, even in slow motion." Thom Brennaman on Chapman's fastball.
I was thinking as the game wore on that the loser would likely win the next day and that's exactly what happened. These one game means everything stuff in MLB rarely turns out that way. I never saw it as a devastating loss for our Reds because I never felt like we had the game in hand or that it was a game we should have won. Quite frankly, we didn't play well enough on a lot of levels and the Cards deserved the W. Fine. You move on and try to beat 'em the next day
