    I agree. That shoulda been a strikeout. Instead the bases are loaded and nobody out.

    I think it's time to pull Harang. I don't want to see him give up a ton of runs again.

    Harang escapes a bases loaded zero out jam by getting Holliday to pop out and Hawpe and Ianetta to strikeout.

    And Harang gets a K to get out of the inning. Now THAT'S the Harang we like to see.

    I would've pulled the guy. Guess that's why I'm not a manager.

    Six shutout innings from Harang on 115 pitches. I don't know about you guys but I don't like having Harang throw 115 pitches three starts removed from a forearm injury.

    I agree 115 is too high. Good to see Harang have a good outing, though. Think of the pitches that would have been saved if Keppinger could get to anything. They've got to get him off SS by next year.

    Votto RBI single makes it 8-0 Reds. Two straight three hit games for Votto.

    Maybe it's time to trust Baker and Pole a little bit.

    Many of the fans around here wanted Harang "shut down" before this start. Looks like maybe it was the right move to let him pitch. Seems perhaps to be getting back to himself, Mr. Harang.

    As for the pitch count, if he's thrown 115 that's about enough I'd say. But it's good to give Harang an opportunity to pitch successfully after such a tough stretch.

    Yeah, maybe we should trust Dusty abilities to handle pitchers after he did such a fine job in Chicago.

    I didn't care for the ump's zone very much. Harang could've been out of a couple innings much earlier than he was. Seems like he wasn't getting the inside (to RH) strike.

    This is a very important outing for Harang and a really good sign for the ballclub. I'd just have liked to see him come in around 100.

    Hmm. Patterson didn't come through. Interesting.
