    disappointing turn of events there. Reds have to capitalize on those situations. A one pitch out on a weak fly ball...better be a meat-ball in that situation.

    The rain is outta here except for the chance of a 'stray shower'.

    This isn't picking on Brandon, who has been pretty selective/patient the first two games... But you don not swing at the 1st pitch after the guy in front of you walks. Just not a good AB.

    To fill folks in, Rasmus smashes on off of Arroyo, deflected to Rolen, who throws him out. They're checking BA now, a couple tosses, should be OK.

    Craig lines out to Rolen to end inning. One to tell Grandkids though, about his 1st AB.

    Arroyo seems to be pounding the strike zone. 26 pitches, 19 strikes. Pretty good for 2 innings.
