    He strikes out on a very nasty slider. He worked the count though so that was good to see.

    Wow, Kevin Barker gets intentionally walked with only one out in the inning!

    BRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCE comes up with the bases loaded and only one out. He's going to be stuck facing a lefty too. Come on Jay!

    BRUUUUUUUUUUUUUCE gets it done and the Reds are up 2-1!!

    Welcome back Jay! I think that was a nice boost of confidence for him to get a hit in his first PA back.

    Jay bounces a 'seeing eye' single through the right side. Sometimes, it's better to be lucky than good....Knocks in two, Reds up 2-1.

    Welcome back Jay!

    Reds hold the lead through the 8th but I'd love an insurance run or two before Coco comes in for the save.

    Re: Reds vs Astros - 9/14/09

    Brandon hits HR #20!!!

    And there's the run I was hoping for in this inning. Brandon also does something no Red has ever done but they've said it so fast that I didn't catch it! OK, here it is...he has now had three consecutive 20 HR-20 SB-20 double seasons and he's apparently the first Red to do that. Pretty cool. Congrats Brandon!

    Bruce gets his first test of the wrist and makes a great catch in RF. A little too similar to the diving catch that originally broke the wrist but he kept the wrist up and made the catch.

    And he catches out #2 as well! He should just catch them all since he got the Reds the lead in the first place, LOL

    REDS WIN!!!

    Bronson gets the win (he should buy Jay a steak dinner for the 2 RBIs, LOL : ), Brandon gets HR #20, and Coco actually has an uneventful save for once. Go Reds!!

    Hope everyone enjoyed the HeatherC game thread tonight, LOL

    Re: Reds vs Astros - 9/14/09

    i watched most of the game.

    Bruce made a great catch in the 9th to keep the bases empty in a 2 run game.

    Bronson has been amazing in the 2nd half. all the teams that needed pitching 2 & 1/2 months ago really messed up by not trading for him.

    Yep. Darned right. Bronson may not have the best stuff, but he's BY FAR the best "pitcher" the Reds have had in 20 years IMO. The way he keeps hitters totally off-balance with the arm angles, locations, speeds. When he's on top of his game, he's a pleasure to watch. I love watching guys look foolish on one of those bugs bunny breaking balls. :O) I really wish he could tutor some of the other starters on how to actually PITCH and not just throw.

    Agree, Sir Charles, that we tend to undervalue Bronson on RZ and that he knows how to pitch in a way that some others might benefit from studying. But 20 years takes in Jose so I don't know if I can quite buy that.

    Re: Reds vs Astros - 9/14/09

    My son and daughter went to last night's game. When I looked at the attendance from last night in the paper this morning, I said to my wife that the kids were mentioned in the article about the Reds game. She asked what I meant and I said the attendance was 9852, so if they clearly showed up in the number there.

    Funny thing is when I told my son that this aftenroon, he said they'd commented on that last night at the game.

    Ah...Okay, you got me. I forgot Rijo. :O) I didn't actually look at the specific years, it was just a round number....like 100 pitches. *grin* But most of our decent-to-good starters have been power pitchers and didn't have the mindset of Bronson.

    Regarding the attendance, yep...those stands were depressing. Can we just shuttle the Dayton fans over to Cincy? Sheesh
