Cingrani on the bump in the 8th after Broxton allows a hit and gets an out.
Cingrani walks his first batter. Cards lead 1-0 on an error by Phillips.
Ugh, Thom. "It should be noted Cingrani is not on the 40 man roster." So, if he's not on the 40 man roster, what is he doing pitching for the Reds now?
The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.
"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."
Top of the 9th coming up. Looks like a lost cause tonight.
Valdez, Votto, Rodriguez, and hopefully Bruce up. Alphabet on the mound.

Valdez beats out an infield squibler on an error.
Votto strikes out.
Motte on to close
Rod grounds out to the right side as does Bruce. Reds lose.
Nice way to go into the playoffs - getting shut out by the cardinals B team.
Good to see our bats peaking heading into the playoffs.....
Is it "next season" yet?
Good momentum builder.
