Nothing Santiago could do about that called third strike, either.
If the home plate umpire is going to give Bumgarner that pitch, they might as well call the game and let everyone beat the afternoon rush hour traffic.
Eric Stratton, Rush Chairman. Damn glad to meet ya.
Lol that pitch was so far outside...
And now the ump,isn't giving anything close to Marshall. Never heard of him before, hopefully won't ever again.

Marshall vs. Posey. This can't end well.

Well, whatever smidgeon of momentum the Reds had after winning four straight (three against the woebegone D-backs) is now completely gone. Poof! Disappeared into thin air. The Reds aren't even competitive today.
And with Cole Hamels going tomorrow, this supposed "big homestand" will get off to quite the whimper with losing three of the first four.
Oh, and Walt: I know you don't read this and if you did wouldn't care, but I went to my fifth game last night and saw my fifth loss. In two of those losses the team you assembled didn't even score. I went to 38 games in 2012, but I hope you understand when I say that I won't be going again anytime soon.
