Big K. Clevenger strikes out looking.
Jeff Baker up. Let's hope he doesn't hit like his name sake.
Jeff Baker pinch hitting
RBI grounder, two outs.
Baker grounds out to short. 4-3 Reds. 2 outs.
"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."
Marshall is excellent. K ends the game.
Nice pitch. Stewart strikes out looking. Reds win 4-3!
Needed that one.
Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
Marshall is murder on lefties.
Pay attention to the open sky
Hope the Cubs are enjoying that production from Wood and Sappelt.*
*I readily admit they could very well become Chicago regulars, but for now, I feel like gloating.
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
Still, it took Cueto, Ondrusek, Chapman and Marshall to beat the Cubs by one run and win the series 2-1. Fine, but Reds still have some work to do.
