    Dunn and Valentin hit dingers; Harang goes 7; bullpen makes it very interesting--Reds win 7-5.

    I am really concerned about the pen. This a group of mediocre pitchers and not a single one has a dominating out pitch(hence no real closer). I don't think White will survive long and I am concerned about the propensity of Burns and Hammonds to give up HRs.

    Harang will pitch more than five but less than seven solid innings, giving up three or fewer earned runs. The Cubs will hit several balls solidly. The Reds will turn one or two DPs to get out of jams.

    Zambrano will be throwing some serious gas, but his command will not be sharp.

    The strong winds will be blowing straight out to left field, resulting in more than fourteen runs being scored.

    Griffey goes yard
    Felipe has 2 hits
    EE has 2 hits

    Reds win 7-5. Reds/Cubs games are always crazy.

    9-7 Reds. Late heroics by Abad. And judging by the weather right now, at least 2 rain delays.
