    9-30-09 Reds vs Cards

    Lineup (per Fay):

    Drew Stubbs cf
    Paul Janish ss
    Joey Votto 1b
    Brandon Phillips 2b
    Scott Rolen 3b
    Jay Bruce rf
    Laynce Nix lf
    Ryan Hanigan c
    Bronson Arroyo p

    vs. RH John Smoltz (1-2, 3.18)

    Justin Lehr will start tomorrow. Matt Maloney had been scheduled but he’s still bothered by that blister on his left middle finger.

    ~has anybody heard anything about Gomes? He's played only twice in the past 7 games. Illness? Injury?

    Re: 9-30-09 Reds vs Cards

    11 straight starts by Bronson where he's gone 7 innings or more with allowing 3 runs or less. If he gets the 12th, it'll be the first time in Reds history. Say what you want about Bronson, but he's been dominant in the second half. I'm not sure there's been a better duo than Bronson & Homer of late.

    Schumaker K's to start the game.

    Bronson is awesome.

    Howdy from my little corner of the world!

    Nice first inning for Bronson and boy did Brandon look surprised when that Big Al grounder ended up in his glove, LOL

    Darn! I thought it was another leadoff dinger. Stubbs drive caught at the wall.

    Two down, trade-bait coming to the plate.

    Woohoo! Who'd thunk it? A double by Votto. He's just incredible.

    Team record for Votto. Most doubles in one month. EVER.

    Could we actually see 2 team records fall in one game?

    Jeff Brantley must not watch the AL very often because Oriole 2B Brian Roberts has been a doubles machine for most of his career and is sitting on FIFTY SIX of them right now. Jeff, get out a little more buddy!

    Not that I mind Joey setting more records and becoming even more awesome though!

    Brandon pops out to right. Okay, we didn't score...but it looks like we're getting good wood on Smoltzie. That's a good sign.

    I thought I heard that Brian Roberts is just about the break the season doubles record (by Biggio I think it was).

    Smoltz really has had an incredible career. I've always liked him and it would be nice to see him end his career on a happier note than it would have had it ended after his stint with the RS.
