Votto doubles to left center. They just ran themselves out of a run.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
Ludwick strikes out on 3 pitches.

Brewers up 1-0 on the Pirates in the 3rd. Marlins up 1-0 on the Braves. Cards just starting.
Several rainouts tonight: Phillies - Mets, Nationals - Dodgers, Blue Jays - Yankees
I don't usually apologize for Stubbs, but it looked to me like he called out on ball four.
As for Phillips, I don't know who called for that steal of third, but it was ridiculous.
Nasty pitch by Homer to strikeout The Jesus.
DeJesus strikes out swinging.
I swear, Valbuena is generally awful but he gives the Reds pitchers fits.
