    Got me wondering how many times Hanigan has got on base with 2 outs and was left there with pitcher on deck......

    Batting him 8th is the worst thing Teh dust does.

    Got a bad feeling with Uggla up again with a man on, hopefully I'm proven wrong.

    I even think I know Dusty's reasoning on Hanigan. A couple years ago he tried Hanigan higher in the lineup and Ryan slumped for awhile. So I figure Dusty decided right then that Hanigan is the eighth guy, that's his best spot, keep him there.

    I mean, I don't pick on Dusty much, but on this team hitting Ryan eighth, burying him in the lineup, really makes so little sense.

    Sorry for the interruption, let's go Reds. Or whatever.

    6 times, 2 of which were by walk. And that's the maximum, as the P could have been PH for in a few instances.

    Uggla comes close again, but Ludwick catches it. Two down in the sixth.

    Arroyo with a K ends the sixth. I have him at 97 pitches, is that right?

    Bronson has some trouble beyond 90 pitches or so, hopefully tonight is an exception.

    Cozart has really picked things up again, after a slump. Nice player.

    Phillips, as usual, falls behind 0-2. Then he takes two balls. Even count.

    Then ball three. This fella Hanson is a good pitcher by the way.

    Foul tip, would have been ball four, runners were going. Stays alive.

    Walked him, loaded for Bruce.

    Jay should try for the fly ball, probably would hit it out. Nice easy fly ball Jay.
