I think Volquez could take Lohse...
Hairston draws a two out 12 pitch walk.
Bruce got ahead 3-0, took a couple called strikes and then grounded out. Lohse is at 93 pitches.
After 5 innings:
Reds 2, Cards 0
Volquez 55 pitches, 34 strikes
Lohse 93 pitches, 63 strikes.
Nice 12 pitch AB there by Hairston to draw the walk.
"I think he'd be unbelievable. He's as organized as anyone in the game, he holds people accountable... He doesn't buy into stereotypical things in the game... Price looks at evidence. He's a freaking smart guy, he makes his decision on reasonable evidence." Bronson Arroyo
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
Singles by Schumaker and Ludwick. First and second with only one out for Pujols. I have a bad feeling about this one.
Too bad the offense fell asleep because now we're about to be behind.
He just made Ankiel look stupid - that changeup is just N-A-S-T-Y
Ankiel K's. Big out.
Still loaded for Glaus.
Still got a bad feeling.
two HUGE k's by EV
The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.
