    Taveras reaches second on a double error by the shortstop. All due to his speed. If he would only hit the ball on the ground more often. And walk occasionally.

    Now a single by Gonzo knocks Taveras in. That's what the Reds had in mind with Willy, but it just happens too infrequently.

    Homer gives up a homer to a 100 pound, 15 year old kid.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Homer just isn't putting anyone away with the fastball tonight and doesn't seem to have control of the secondary pitches. The splitter has been non-existent and the curve has been up in the zone....I really would like to see Homer put a few fastballs in on the hands of the hitters to make them a little less comfortable up there.

    Lincecum with a single and then someone about the size of a bat boy homers.

    Homer has these games where he is going fine and then suddenly has problems in the middle innings. It seemed to happen quite often in the minor leagues.

    i doubt it's fatigue. It could be that he loses some concentration and makes mistakes. But with maturity hopefully he will avoid this problem.

    Two outs and a man on second for SF with a two run lead.

    Does anyone but me see the difference between the chaff we call a ball team and Scot Rolen? I'm not talking about everyone, but he's a professional hitter and it shows.

    Gomes with a productive veteran out.

    I meant Gomes.

    Rolen doubles with one out in the sixth. Balentien singles to move him to third (he hasn't made an out tonight) and Gomes grounds into a force play to score Scott and make it 4-3.

    Not gonna lie, I really like what I see out of Balentien so far.

    Homer gives up a two-out single to Rowand but gets through the sixth without major incident. He's likely gone for a pinch-hitter in the seventh; not a terrible start for him. Lapses in concentration begat a pair of two-run homers, but he was pretty decent beyond that.

    Never mind- Homer bats for himself to start the seventh. Can't say I agree with that decision by ol' Dust.

    Why is Homer hitting for himself?

    Homer burns up eight Lincecum pitches before grounding out to second. Tim now at 110 pitches with one out in the seventh.
