Votto grounds out to 2nd on the first pitch. 1 out.
Kevin Gregg and Jason Marquis brought back vivid memories of the Lost Decade.
Kevin Gregg: DFA'd May 11, 2015
Jason Marquis: DFA'd June 5, 2015
Cabrera strikes out swinging. 2 outs.
Bruce flies out to the warning track in center. 2-1 Dodgers after 3.
400 foot flyout for Bruce. That's a homer anywhere else in the park.
I miss Adam Dunn.
Anemic offense. Bad llineup.
To inflict Patterson like Baker has on Reds-dom is simply cruel. No one in control of their faculties would use Patterson as much (or in the manner) that Baker has. Having Baker do that really hampers a GM, because Baker cannot apparently be trusted to be sane. You can't give him flawed toys because he will use excessively and incorrectly the flawed toys. It is mind-boggling.
At least CP is batting 7th tonight, but I don't know that I have ever been aware of a team that has run out guys so OBP horrible at the top of their line-up on a consistent basis as this team has this year.
Martin strikes out looking. 1 out.
A long homer to right by Loney. 3-1 Dodgers.
Kemp lines out to 3rd. 2 outs.
Arroyo should walk every LH hitter he faces for the rest of the year. I bet his numbers would improve.
