    Sweet justice. Dunn walks in a run. Take that Dusty.
    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.

    Dusty Baker is such a poor manager. Just awful. All these extra pitchers and he brings in the injured Burton to give the game away.

    In comes No. 52 in your program and No. 1 in your hearts after Bray walks in a run. RBI for Dunn

    Why does Dunn insist on clogging the bases?
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    Bray had Dunn 0-2 and walked him. Good grief. But it shouldn't have come to that. Using Burton there was an awful move.

    And now he brings Lincoln in. LOL. Why not just send Roenicke home so he can begin his offseason?

    Bray=1.6+ WHIP. Not part of the long term solution.

    Once again, Reds bullpen can't find the strike zone, nibbling at the corners, down and in the dirt--3rd straight pitcher to do that. Lincoln gets a K by throwing down the middle.

    Interesting. 2 down and 2-0.

    Paul Bako, catcher extraordinaire. Technically a wild pitch, but if the batter swings at it, you should be able to catch it.

    Wild pitch/Passed ball makes it 3-0. Nice bullpen management this inning.

    Lincoln throws in the dirt again, it gets by Bako and it's 3-0. Game over (as if it wasn't at 1-0)

    K to end the inning. When you don't score, it doesn't matter how many the bad guys get I guess.

    Take away Harang's error and using a different set of pitchers in the 8th and we could still be scoreless, but we need to score more runs and play better defense against a good pitcher. We didn't.
