    8.3.11 Reds @ Astros

    this is the free game of the day on MLB.TV for those of us without any other was to view the Reds
    Frazier gets the start at 3rd.


    Drew Stubbs 8
    Edgar Renteria 6
    Joey Votto 3
    Brandon Phillips 4
    Jay Bruce 9
    Fred Lewis 7
    Ramon Hernandez 2
    Todd Frazier 5
    Dontrelle Willis LHP

    v. Jordan Lyles RHP
    0-6, 4.41 ERA


    http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/gameday/index...1&mode=preview
    It will be a battle of two winless pitchers at Minute Maid Park on Wednesday night as Astros rookie Jordan Lyles (0-6) duels with Reds left-hander Dontrelle Willis (0-1).

    Lyles is making his 12th start of the season and has been better than his record shows, allowing three runs or less in six starts.

    He has been the victim of some low run support, as the Astros have averaged just 2.88 runs in his starts. He has received more than four runs of support just once in his rookie season and has had just three or fewer runs to work with in seven of his 11 starts.

    He should get used to that. The Astros only average 3.76 runs per game and that's when they still had Pence and Bourn.

    Stubbs and Renteria K'd, Votto singled a flare into left but got thrown trying to stretch it to a double.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    2-0 Astros. Not a good start.

    Wow. The last 2 days, Yonder Alonso has taken ground balls at THIRD. Mark Sheldon just said that on WLW to Marty. That's stunning.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    There are still 2 months left. Reds have too much talent to be out of it yet. Doesn't help when your having issues with the AAAstros though.
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.
