    Okay, so I know I said I was bad at math, but I lied. Speaking of patterns....

    In the second, the Astros scored 1 run, the Reds 2. In the third the Astros scored 1 run and the Reds scored 3. If they keep this up, the Reds should win 44-8.

    Good to see Boone can still pick it.

    Now 8-2 Reds. The offense has done a 180 in 2 months.

    Bruce has his OPS quietly up to .745....starting to be a bit more optimistic about him next year.

    Are we sure Juan Francisco can't help this team next year with the stick? He's been pretty frisky since his call-up...

    Bang! Bang! Herrera throws an 81mph slider to strike out the batter and I'm sure Corky's throw to second to get the runner was faster than 81.
    After 7 complete it's Reds 8 - Astros 4.

    Wow, the Reds sure are having fun with their bats tonight! I'm glad to see Jay having another good night and I ALWAYS enjoy seeing Joey tear it up during a game. Hey, could the Reds actually win tonight by the same score that they won with last night?! That would be a riot, LOL

    I bet SirCharles is having a great time at the game!

    If he can play left field, they could platoon him out there and let him spell Rolen, who will need it, on occasion. That last at bat was poor, but he does have a knack up there, as one poster once correctly said.

    They only got 12 hits tonight instead of the 17 from last night. Slackers.

    Anyway, we just got back from the game. My daughter and I had great seats. Almost exactly where that guy was from last nights game who caught the flung bat into the stands down the third base line. Anyway, prior to the game during BP, I predicted a 10-2 score. I thought I nailed if for a while there. :O) I also lucked out and called Bruce's shot late in the game. It was a really great night overall. Votto the double machine continues to knock the cover off the ball. We got the win. And my daughter got Jay Bruce's, Drew Stubbs & Juan Francisco's autographs. Kudos to her. :O)

    It's also time to cut Justin a little bit of slack. Anybody notice the number of starts & innings he's logged this season. Good grief. That's one heck of a workload. All in all, I think he's handled himself in the bigs quite well considering his rather pedestrian stuff.

    But yeah...Louisville it'll be.

    I'm glad you had a great time at the game! Good for your daughter getting a few autographs too.
