Looks like it will be one of those frustrating games to follow as the Reds probably have orders to be aggressive early in the count. Each batter for the Reds starts off with a ball but none wait for a called strike to start swinging. so much for driving up the pitch count.

Besides being an excelelnt pitcher, Hudson is one that throwes strikes.

If you look at the spilts, you best chance of hitting him is on the first pitch, or after he has fallen behind.

Letting strikes go by is death to a pitcher like Hudson, as the strikes will get more marginal the more favourable the pitching count.

On a hit and run, Heisey legs out an infield single. As it was a hard play for Jones to make (a weak grounder), Bruce tried to leg it out and make it to third, but is gunned out on a play at the bag.

I guess you can't fault Bruce for bing aggressive. It was a great play by the Braves infield- everyone did their job.

That's exactly how I feel. If anyone isn't completely on their game on the Braves' defense, Bruce is easily safe.

It looked like he was safe if the lead leg would have went straight to the bag. Still not sure Wilson got him, but the ball beat Bruce and the slide looked funny.

Except Hudson hasn't pitched that many innings yet this year and has not had pinpoint control either. 5BB in like 18 innings. If he is starting everyone off with balls don't help him get in a flow by swinging early.

i can only imagine how bad they were talking about that umps zone from yesterday behind the plate.

They were worse during their big years of course....but Simpson sounds so condescendingly snide and Skipper is a tool.

The reds are in the middle of a grinder portion of the schedule. Cueto might need to take a few innings for the team to keep the pen in good shape.

There's one of my pet peeves right there. That run was "un-earned" for Cueto due to the error...charged to HIM. I'm sorry, that should be earned.

Hits in 8 out of his last 10 games. Just finished a 6 game hitting streak. He's getting a ton of ab's and yeah he's slumping, but I'd say it's a bit overboard to call him an automatic out.

Not to beat a dead horse but Bruce is up 1-0 to a pitcher who has thrown 7 straight balls and walked two guys when you are down 4 and he swings at a marginal strike. What is he thinking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You need base runners make him at least throw one strike before you help him out. He really should have someone talk to him after that.
