Knowing the Reds luck he will get warned or tossed.

Phillips was at ball three to make it 2-1 and then flies to center field. Oswalt tried to intentionally hit Phillips but missed him. Let's see if the Reds retaliate.

Wild pitch by Roy Oswalt, Scott Hatteberg to 2nd.

Oswalt threw at Phillips, make no mistake about it.

Brandon Phillips flies out to center fielder Willy Taveras.

After 5 innings, Astros 1 Reds 3.

Pitches-strikes: Oswalt 97-62, Claussen 88-48.
Ground outs-fly outs: Oswalt 7-5, Claussen 10-2.

Due up:

Krivsky with the nice sense of humor (just saw this, and im late to the game thread so forgive me if it;s a repeat)


Krivsky sat in the Reds dugout and pondered the dilemma facing his club in Friday night's game against the Astros at Great American Ball Park.

Astros starter Roy Oswalt is 15-0 lifetime vs. Cincinnati.

Reds starter Brandon Claussen, meanwhile, has never beaten Houston. The Reds were shut out in each of Claussen's first three career starts versus the Astros.

"I guess we're the underdogs," Krivsky said.

Rick White is not that bad for a few hitters. Leave him in long enough and there will usually be trouble, but tends to get ground balls from first few hitters.

As for Claussen, he has good stuff, nice breaking pitch, changes speeds well. But he is so inefficient, throws so many pitches, that he seems rarely to go deep into games.
