Clay Rapada in to pitch
Stubbs gets picked off
Stubbs asleep and gets picked off. Now they can walk Joey
"You only have to bat a thousand in two things; flying and heart transplants. Everything else you can go 4-for-5."
Stubbs has just the bare minimum of baseball instincts, and that's the nice way of saying it.
"They didn't like it in Pittsburgh."
"If they knew what they liked, they wouldn't live in Pittsburgh."

Votto flies out to the track in left. 5-3 Reds mid 7th
With Stubbs' speed, he should be on second base now with Phillips hitting the lefty in an RBI opportunity spot.
Hey Drew, if you want to hit in front of Votto to get good pitches, try not to get picked off on the rare occasion when you are on base.
Man. . . .
Swisher lines a single to left
Swisher singles. Dusty, get up a pitcher and give Homer one or two more batters tops. I don't care about pitch counts.
Manage to win. Chapman and Logan are both rested, as is Marshall.
This isn't about stretching out Homer. Get somebody ready.
Ondrusek warming up
