On paper, the Reds have two tough series remaining outside of the division. Arizona and LA. They are both at home.

Arizona is a hot team and highly motivated to get truly back into the wild card race.

Reds haven't done well against good teams.

I think this series will be telling. Overall, though, I'd like to see them win 5 of the 7 games on this homestand v DBacks and Brewers. Or better, obviously.

We need to play well in these next 7 games. Every game is big now :)

Both teams are 7-3 in their last 10. I expect a really good series. It would be nice to win three or even four. That would just about knock the Dbacks out of it. A split would be OK too but they would still be just close enough to worry about.

The Votto detractor like to slam for Votto for some of the easy plays he's flubbed (which he has) but you certainly don't hear them giving him credit for some of the downright fabulous plays he makes. Sad.

And Votto grounds out.

But not before Brantley and Thom bring up the RBI issue, and JB shares a story of how he was just talking to Jim Leyland in the elevator the other day and Leyland was saying how Cabrera will expand his strike zone when an RBI is available. Then talk follows about Votto's goal of not making an out.

It's unbelievable how these announcers can spend so much time watching something, spending their entire lives in it, and not really getting it.

And this follows kudos given out earlier to the fine year BP is having- which I don't mind, them praising BP. They just do not understand who BP is driving in.

Ugh, help us please.

I was listening to the game on the radio on my way home from work, and I was surprised to hear Chris Welsh on the radio. I thought he did a nice job of play-by-play. His enthusiasm reminded me of the Old Lefthander a little bit.

Arroyo is the best pitcher I've ever seen pitching out of jams, other than the very elite pitchers. He really thrives in those situations. Always has.

And Leake has been much better in those spots this year, undoubtedly learning from Bronson.

I'd differ. Prado got a two run single on an 0-2 pitch. The pitch wasn't grooved, but on 0-2 he shouldn't have had anything he could hit.

It really wasn't a bad pitch. He blooped it over the shortstop's head, it happens. Can't fault him for making a quality pitch, it's not like he fed him a fastball right down the pipe.

It was a bloop, it wasn't hit hard. But in that spot I want the batter to swing at something he can't hit. The pitch was a bit too good IMO.

0-2 pitches with the bases loaded shouldn't be hittable.

If it is in the zone it is certainly capable of being a hit. Therefore you believe it must be a ball or you believe there are unhittable strikes. That's fine, but which is it?

In the case of Arroyo, I would have liked a pitch off the plate there. Chapman, or Hoover, or Latos, or Bailey could throw a strike if they wanted to.

Actually parra gives Baker a lot of credit. He says when he came off the DL. Baker sat down with him and told him there were lots of pitchers who were more successful than him who did not have the stuff he had. Parra said that made a big impression on him.

Arroyo knows more in his little finger about pitching in jams than I will ever know. So I trust that he either didn't execute the pitch well or Prado just got lucky. Just hate to see a big hit on an 0-2 pitch.

But Arroyo got out of the jam, there's still a good chance for the Reds to win. Hopefully the pen is on tonight.
