Castro 6 (nice play deep in the hole by Janish)
End 1 0-0
And back to work for me.
I'll try update when I can.
BTW, when I went to Az last year, the games in Mesa were intolerable. Cub fans are miserable no matter where they are.
Hanigan singles Gomes scores 1-0 Reds
Janish flies out
LeCure grounds into a force out.
1-0 Reds after 1.5
Soriano pops out to Votto
Dewitt grounds into a FC. Pena scores Soto out at 2nd. 1-1
Colvin ground rule double 2-1 Cubs
Castro flies out.
2-1 after 2.
Time to focus on the Buckeyes, I'm out.
Phillips doubles after a Stubbs K then Votto walks and Rolen with the 3 run shot. 4-2 Reds ok I'm done now.
4-4 in the bottom of the 3rd as Danny Ray replaces LeCure with one out.
6-4 Cubs after 3 as Danny Ray allows LeCure's runners to score. LeCure's ERA rockets up to 5.79.
Reds tie it at 6 on a Stubbs single and a Votto HR.
Going to the bottom of the 5th
Cubs now lead 9-6 after 5 innings, as Burton takes the mound and surrenders 3 runs in the fifth. LeCure, Herrera and Burton all looking like the B-squad in this game against the Adolescent Bears. Love that handle!
Anyone hear what's happening with Bailey in the minor league game?
Get out the laughing gas!
Reds now take 10-9 lead in this game of playground seesaw with the Adolescent Bears. It's the end of the 7th. Maloney preserved our 1-run advantage pitching an inning, surrendering a walk and a hit but ceding no runs to the Chicagoans.
We racked up four runs in the sixth inning on a series of doubles (by Gomes, Hanigan) and RBI singles (by Stubbs, Phillips, Votto).
Reds up 14-12 after 8
