    Reds 3rd:

    Stubbs lines an off speed pitch into left for a single.
    Janish pops out to shallow right.
    Votto bloops a single to short left.

    Oddly enough, Karstens is done after 44 pitches. New pitcher is another righthander, Steve Jackson.
    Phillips nearly nails Mark Berry with a foul liner. Wild pitch by Jackson, both runners advance.
    Phillips then bounces out to 3rd, with Stubbs scoring. Votto has to stay at 2nd.
    Rolen flies out to center.

    After three innings, Reds 2, Pirates 0.
    Bailey at 55 pitches, 32 strikes.
    Jackson (new) at 7 pitches, 5 strikes.

    As shaky as Homer looked early, still no runs allowed, only 2 hits, 1 bb and 4 K's. Getting stronger as he goes. I've really liked that aspect of his pitching in the second half.

    Janish is very good defensively. They showed that he leads all NL shortstops in fielding percentage. Not bad in the newer defensive metrics either.

    No doubt and that makes him valuable--but not in the two hole.

    George Grande not coming back next year. Wow.

    Does George have a sick family or something? Castillini said he "had to take care of his family."

    Pirates 4th:

    Milledge grounds a single up the middle.
    Moss singles through the right side hole, two on, no outs.
    Young bunts the runners over. Second and Third, one out.
    Diaz bounces one in front of the plate, Homer grabs it and throws Milledge out at home. Two outs. Nice play.
    Cruz flies to center. No runs score...

    Commissioner Selig on the phone with the TV crew saying how much he will miss Grande.

    Nice Houdini there from Homer. Flyout to Stubbs to escape unscathed. This kid is really showing some maturity here in the second half. I'm really looking forward to a whole season of him next year.
