    3/26/09 Reds vs Twins

    Don't forget that tonight's game is on TV, channel 668 on DirecTV.

    Twins:

    Denard Span cf

    Alexi Casilla 2b

    Brendan Harris 3b

    Justin Morneau 1b

    Michael Cuddyer rf

    Delmon Young lf

    Mike Redmond c

    Nick Puto ss

    Nick Blackburn p

    Reds:

    Willy Taveras cf

    Jeff Hairston Jr. ss

    Joey Votto 1b

    Jay Bruce rf

    Jeff Keppinger 3b

    Chris Dickerson lf

    Ramon Hernandez c

    Micah Owings p

    Fay left out the second baseman. I'm guessing Phillips is playing second and batting fourth.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    Dickerson just made a great throw to nail a runner at the plate. No score after a 1/2 inning.

    It was insane that they sent that guy. He was out by 30 feet.

    K looking by Taveras. Lazy pop out by Hairston.

    Weak check swing ground out from Votto.

    Three weak to ugly at-bats from the Reds in the first.

    Delmon Young with a single to start the 2nd. Owings getting hit fairly stoutly to start the game.

    What the heck was Taveras doing there? A routine pop fly to center and Taveras pulls up and forces Phillips to attempt to make the over the shoulder catch. Runners on first and second and nobody out. That is the center fielders ball.

    Silly play by Phillips there to try the over-the-shoulder catch. Taveras and/or Bruce was there and should have called him off. Phillips drops it, and runners are on first and second with no outs rather than one out runner on first.

    That 2-2 pitch sure looked like a strike. Guess not.

    Good gravy, Owing just got squeezed again on the 3-2. Tough call for ball four.

    Bases loaded, no outs.

    Owings is falling behind everyone tonight, though that last pitch should have been strike three. I guess its spring training for umps too.

    Supposedly Nick Blackburn is under orders not to swing, so this ought to be a K.

    K. Blackburn is no Owings with the bat in hand.

    Nice stop by Ramon H. of a ball in the dirt. Very nice.

    Owings still can't find the plate.

    At 3-0 on Spann, Owings throws two fastballs for strikes to run the count full...

    Ack. Another pitch that looked AWFULLY good, but apparently was off the plate to the outside.

    Bases loaded walk, 1-0 Twins.

    Owings then gets a soft line drive to SS that turns into an easy inning-ending DP.

    1-0 Twins.

    7 baserunners through two innings. One run.
