    Saturday 8.29.09 Reds v Dodgers

    Stubbs 8
    Janish 6
    Votto 3
    Phillips 4
    Rolen 5
    Balentien 7
    Gomes 9
    Tatum 2
    Maloney 1
    vs. RH Charlie Haeger (1-1, 1.93), a knuckleballer.

    Reds on season-high five-game winning streak, their longest since 6-game winning streak from May 12-18 of 2008.

    1B Kevin Barker has been optioned to Louisville as LHP Matt Maloney comes up to start today's game, manager Dusty Baker told us at his pre-game media session.
    "It's always a tough decision, but there are a couple of guys with a little more versatility," Baker said.
    Baker said Barker will return once Louisville finishes its Triple-A playoffs.
    --
    OF Laynce Nix hopes to return in a day or two from a stiff neck. Nix had an MRI on Friday and said he has a bulging disk, and is doing treatments. He said the problem stems from an outfield collision he had with then-Milwaukee teammate Geoff Jenkins a few years ago; after occasional problems since, he finally had it checked out.
    --
    OF Jay Bruce (disabled/broken wrist) said he has begun swinging a bat but is not yet cleared to hit.
    Bruce also will take the lineup card out again today, as he has done during the Reds' current winning streak.
    --
    Francisco Cordero probably not available today after pitching 4 straight days, Baker says; Rhodes/Masset/Burton could close if needed.
    --
    Dodgers lineup
    Furcal 6
    Pierre 8
    MRamirez 7
    Kemp 9
    Loney 3
    Loretta 5

    I'm glad to see Dusty giving Stubbs a lot of at bats. It needs to be seen what he can do offensively. Defensively, he's fine.

    Knuckler going for the Dodgers today could give these free swingers some trouble.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    ManRam Homers. Hard to knock a guy for giving up a HR to Manny, but Maloney sure gives up a lot of them. Dumatrait territory.

    I leave the room for 5 minutes and it's 2-0.

    My fault. I will no longer leave the room

    Gameday says 4 Seam Fastball at the usual 87 MPH. Maloney was a guy to deal not a guy to hang on to. I think that ship has sailed.

    The kind that hit his bat squarely.

    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)

    Kind of excited to see a knuckleballer at GABP.
