Ludwick pops out to Altuve who makes on over the shoulder catch.
Something about Frazier's stance and swing make it look like he's completely susceptible to pitches on the outer half of the plate.
Then again, I know he's hit the ball the other way before.
This will not change until the Reds win the World Series.......

Frazier strikes out swinging. 12-9 Reds mid 8th.
Can't say Frazier didn't put up a battle.
"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."
Ludwick needs to get the run in somehow there. He can't pop it up on the first pitch.
He hits an occasional bomb, but otherwise Ryan isn't having much of a year.
Sean Marshall in to pitch
Schafer grounds out to 2nd.
Gotta give Dusty credit, Votto had a monster night so far.
Altuve strikes out swinging.
Good inning for Marshall. Lowrie strikes out swinging. 12-9 Reds after 8.
Good inning for Marshall. On to the 9th.
