Phillips pops out to 1b. Two outs.
I think I will go with Taylor...
Bruce grounds out.
Thank goodness for the powerful end of the Reds line-up with Hernandez/Owings and back up to Taveras.
2-1 Reds lead after four.
Thanks for the PM, obm.
I will def throw in with Taylor. His size and power, if he develops, would play nicely in Citizen's.
Danny Herrera on for Cincy now.
Owings battled, got the job done with his bat.
All things considered, a good showing.
Cincinnati Here We Go.
26 Years and Counting...
NASTY change-up from Herrera. Goodness.
Strikeout for the first out.
Herrera just made Morneau look foolish. He is fun to watch on the mound.
Agreed, C.E. Owings by hook or crook, kept runs off the board, and his bat helped them to the lead, a fine example of why he is the leader for the 5th spot in the rotation.
Fly ball to CF for second out.
I continue to love to watch Herrera pitch.
The screwball he throws is absolutely delightful to watch.
Goodbye to Delmon Young on a K.
Morneau and Young both Kd that inning.
Herrera looks great, everytime I see him.
And now he makes Young look bad. 2 K's and a flyout for Herrera.
I want to call him "Dr. H" (based on his initials: DRH).
Dr. H's last pitch for the strikeout looked like something out of a cartoon.
"Bring on Rod Stupid!"
Keppinger singles to CF.
Nice to see Kepp get a hit.
I cannot underscore to all of you who cannot see this enough how ridiculously fun it is to watch Herrera spin that junk up there.
Remember vintage Doug Jones? Slow, slower, slowest? Infuriating to watch him shut your team down? Herrera will be that infuriating to opposing teams...
Dickerson on base (ground single), runners at 1st and 2nd, no outs.
Ramon H up.
This ump has a tight zone. Dickerson just took a 2-2 fastball right down the middle at the knees and the ump called it a ball. Next pitch he singled to right. At least he's consistent.
