Phillips singles to left. 2-1 Reds!
Navarro has the speed of a possum.
Americans love a winner. Americans will not tolerate a loser....Americans play to win all of the time. I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed...the very idea of losing is hateful to an American.

Actually a double for Phillips as he went to 2nd as the ball went off Barmes's glove
Wild pitch and 2 runs score. 4-1 Reds!
the first run scores on the wild pitch. The catcher than threw the ball to the pitcher covering home. It hit the runner for an error.
This fellow Navarro has hit pretty well for the Reds.
Teams often use only 11 pitchers in the playoffs. I could see the Reds going with three catchers so Navarro can be used as a pinch hitter.
If the Reds are going to have an extra position player, not sure I can think of a better idea than keeping Navarro to pinch hit and Mes to be the backup catcher.
Stubbs grounds out to short.
No more Stubbs.
"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."
Votto flies out to left. 4-1 Reds after 2.
Big inning for Leake...heart of the order.
1st pick of the 2022 baseball amateur draft
This is going to sound horrible, but I root for Drew Stubbs to get out every at bat. The worse he plays before October, the less they'll use him (I hope). Heisey deserves his job.
