    Bako begins the 5th with a single. And of course Volquez will hit for himself. We have expanded rosters but who cares, we'll continue to push our young starter.

    Volquez should not be at the plate right now.

    Volquez will have games like this and they take him out so soon every game in which he struggles, he won't be a viable MLB pitcher.

    He's most likely pitching like this because of his heavy workload. This is the first time he's ever thrown this many innings in his career, plus he's coming off three straight games in which he threw 117+ pitches. With only a handful of games left the Reds need to take it easy on him. For the first time in the longtime the Reds actually have some good young pitching, I'd hate to see it ruined.

    Typo. It should have read *if* they take him out. My bad.

    Me too, but 110 pitches, which is what he'll probably have won't mean much.

    Volquez gets two K's and a ground out in the 6th inning. He's now at 100 pitches which means it's a lock for Dusty to send him back for another inning.

    6 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 5 BB, 4 K

    Volquez is up to 196 strikeouts this season.

    Volquez now at 100 pitches. Time for some offense.

    Bruce is hacking at anything again. He's seen 7 pitches in 3 at bats. Lord, someone talk to this kid. Horrible

    Bruce still has plenty to learn.
