To keep us in the game, I think he is going to have to go longer and allow fewer runs. Bronson and Harang both pitched shorter than their norm so the pen could use a break. It would be great if Lohse could pitch 7 innings and bridge the gap to Bray and Guardado. We are in trouble in the long run if we have to throw Majewski and Cormier out there nearly every day. They need some rest.
We could use Loshe for 3/4/5 innings and Standridge can come in and get us to the 8/9th
Good point, totally forgot about standridge. On that note, it boggles my mind how Narron continues to use Majewski over Jason. Other than the home run he gave up to Fielder in Milwaukee, Standridge has been great.Originally Posted by wojo1025
6 1/3 4 runs 2 earned... I think the change of scenery will do him good in the long run, but it might take him a little time to get acclamated
I just can't get overly excited about Lohse's start. I believe he bombs in a bad way: 3 1/3 IP, 7 hits, 5 ER, 1 K and 3 BB.
Maybe wishful thinking:
7 innings, 3 runs, 2 earned runs.

I think that would be a good start for Lohse, but I won't take it. Not with Smoltz pitching against. He'll need to pitch a great game to win. I'd set the over/under for runs scored for us at 2.5 with Smoltz pitching. Hopefully, we'll go over.Originally Posted by Rex Argos

Narron leaves him out there for 5 IP so he can be eligible for the win, alas, he exits

I'll take 1/3 of an inning and 8 runs if the Reds win.
But this guy has better stuff than Joe Mays.
I don't know what his problem has been in Minny. Some guys need a change of scenery, some guys just stink. Time to see which one we got.
I'll take 5 innings 4 ER, allowing 2 HR and 4 walks.
Just keep them in the game....that's all I ask.
With Smoltz the opposing pitcher, it's hard to say what that means.
