    Valdez swings at the first pitch, right to first for the third out.
    "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."

    Wood faced four Reds in the second, on five pitches....

    In fairness, Wood is pounding the zone. That said, they probably should lay off the first pitch.

    I have no problem swinging at the first pitch, as long as it's a hitter's pitch.

    DeJesus vs. Arroyo with the bases loaded

    DeJesus wins. Single up the middle.

    2-0 Cubs

    Why even throw a strike on 0-2?

    I've said it here many times but I hate watching Arroyo pitch. 0-2 hits are the norm for him
    This is the ol Left Hander rounding third and heading for home.

    Barney pops up to 2nd.

    2-0 Cubs after 2. Reds can't let Wood get into a rhythm. And Arroyo has to stop sucking.

    Can the reds make Wood throw six pitches this inning?

    Hanigan goes to a full count, and flies out to right.
    Arroyo K's
    Cozart K's looking.


    2-0 to the bottom of 3
