Deep enough to try with a speedy runner.
Hanigan hasn't been real good at that type of situational hitting this year.

Not very good hitting there with Hanigan grounding to third and Cozart going up 3-1 in the count and fouling out.
Both teams with the meat of the order coming up, third inning should be of interest.

"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."
Stubbs K's (started 3-0)
Bruce flies out to the warning track in left
Rolen flies out to right

Arroyo can't get the clean inning as Kip Wells singles on 0-2 with 2 outs.
Amarista singles to left
Venable singles up the middle
Headley singles off of Frazier's glove
4-3 Padres lead
All with two outs. Yeesh.
Alonso flies out to CF.
4-3 Padres to the bottom of 4
2 outs nobody on, 0-2 count on Kip Wells...and they get 2 runs. Ugh.

Arroyo threw a cookie to wells at 0-2 and severely paid for it. Yuck
Having said that, though, it seems like the Pads have had a lot of seeing-eye singles get through for base hits this series. Two of 'em that last inning plated both runs. I guess that's the risk you take when you don't miss a lot of bats.
Ludwick flies out to deeeeeeeeeeeeeep left
