    Has Stubbs broken the 200 K barrier yet? I'm anxiously awaiting that.

    3-0 Reds. Reds has bags loaded but Votto GIDP to end the threat.

    Young guys providing the offense.

    That HR from Mesoraco was startling -- plus fastball up and in and he turns on it. I don't think I've been as surprised by a home run based on the pitch as by that one, all year. You're talking elite ability to turn on a pitch.

    JD Martinez hit a 2 run dinger in the 3rd, Reds up 3-2 after three and a half.

    Homer with another hit. Now 3-3. Average up to .297
    Reds lead 5-2 in the bottom of the 6th. Bailey with 106 pitches on the night. Hopefully that is it for the evening.
