    Another day, another Reds (sure to be funtastic) Game Thread!

    I notice both McDonald and Janish are in the lineup and also notice they have averages higher than the ones they are replacing. Should be interesting to see how this turns out.

    Guys, hopefully the reds knock the astros back to whatever grungy part of the universe that they originally came from early and often. However, worst case scenario we get out of Houstan with a split.

    Lets sit back and enjoy the game and while we're at it, lets let the mods enjoy it too....

    On paper, I'd predict that this Reds lineup will have a tough time scoring.

    On the other hand, the Astros really only have one tough lefty in the lineup for Arroyo to deal with...

    Taveras tries to lay down a bunt...pops it up. I haven't been very impressed with his ability to lay down bunts. Seems pretty erratic with it

    Grounds a single up the middle though. :O)

    Hairston up....Hampton's paying alot of attention to Willy at first. 3-0

    Hairston drives one to center but not deep enough. 1 down
    Votto up...

    Hairston flys out to centerfield on a 3-1 pitch. One out.

    Votto slaps an outside 0-2 pitch through for a base hit. Runners on first and second.

    Brandon Phillips grounds to 2nd on the first pitch. Both runners advance. He's now 0 for his last 14 ab's.

    BP quickly gets a "productive out", moving the runners to 2nd and 3rd.
