    Man on 3rd, 2 outs

    Maggy Ordonez takes a fastball the other way for an RBI single. Well, at least it wasn't a home run.

    1 on, 1 in 1-0 Tigers.

    AMEN!!!

    Anyway, with as big as this park is, wouldn't you guys say that there will be many fly balls?

    Hope Freel is up to the task.

    1-0 Tigers. Milton looks awful with his location right now.

    Re: Game Thread 5-20-06 Reds vs Tigers:

    1 on, 2 out

    Carlos Guillen up to continue the inning. Milton throws an 87 MPH fastball followed by an 82 MPH change up. That, sports fans, is a recipe for total disaster. Guillen runs the count to 3-0 and Milton would be well off just to walk him and move on.

    Milton gets a generous strike call from the umpire to continue the AB -- still not having good feelings about things -- way outside for ball four to put Guillen on base.

    We cut Dave Williams for this?

    Milton looks awful early on, but Freel's defense hasn't exactly helped things.

    He hasn't hit 90. 87 I think was the fastest yet.

    Milton being Milton with 2 on, 2 out...

    Chris "Hot April" Shelton up with another RISP opportunity. Milton cannot locate his curveball and falls quickly behind 2-0. No location, no velocity -- this guy is not ready to pitch and is going to be lit up in VERY short order if he keeps offering up 87 MPH with no movement.

    He hits a drive out to CF that Griffey can't get and another run scores.

    2-0 Detroit, the national nightmare continues...
