    Better yet, why didn't he advance to third base on that groundout to first base? That ended up costing the Reds a run.

    Astros announcers are slamming on Keppinger for his boneheaded baserunning. Saying he should've advanced on that grounder to berkman that scored Dickerson and then being baffled by him not tagging on Votto's drive. Should've been 2-0 without a doubt.

    Also, I'm not sure if the Reds station showed it, but Hanigan clearly threw out that runner earlier in the game and now he guns down Tejada. He's got a rifle. :O)

    Phillips should've gone for the play at home there. I think it was definitely hit hard enough. Oh well. 1-1 ballgame.

    Just saw that play from a different angle, and you can clearly see Hanigan pointing for Brandon to throw to first. Bad move by Hanigan there. But I kinda expect that from a rook.

    2 extremely well pitched games so far. You could argue inept bats...but both Wandy and Bronson are really on top of their games tonight. Other than the Keppinger baserunning brain-fart...it's been a VERY well played game all around. Nice change after that Rockies nightmare.

    Bruce is lost right now. I agree with Chris Welsh, tonight would have been the perfect time to sit him with a lefty on the hill.

    Agreed. He's swinging at everything.

    Cabrera almost makes a nice grab and then almost snags it again on the deflection off his glove. Berkman on with 0 outs to start the bottom of the 7th.

    Jolbert Cabrera in left field makes Adam Dunn and Pat Burrell look like gold glovers. That is flat out embarrassing. How does a major league team turn so many routine plays into base hits?

    Thankfully Arroyo gets out of it scoreless.

    Great play by Phillips to get Berkman at 2nd. Flipped it with the glove after snagging it on the SS side of the bag. Not able to turn the DP though.

    Oh, come on. That was FAR from a routine play. That would've been a web gem if he'd hauled it in. That was a very long run and then a sliding catch attempt. Someone with great speed probably pulls it in without a problem. CF type speed...Dickerson...yep, he makes it. But definitely not a "routine" play.

    Someone mentioned it earlier, but this is a case where your eyes deceive you. That's a routine play for just about every team in baseball but not the Reds because they have yet another guy playing out of position. That was a routine flyball. That's a play I've seen Dunn make before.

    DP gets out of the inning. 1-1 going into the 8th.

    Reds have K'd 10 times tonight. Career high for Wandy. Free-swingin Reds combined with Rodriguez having great stuff tonight.

    If the Reds can score some runs here, Bronson's looking a CG right in the eye.

    Hanigan homers to make it 2-1 Reds in the 8th.

    Hanigan BOMB! 2-1 Reds! WooHoo!

    That'd be one they'd review a week from now...no doubt. Right above the line. Really close.

    Yes! Hanigan goes yard.

    9th hit for the mighty REDS in the last 19.1 innings. A big one (thanks to Arroyo's effort).
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.
