Actually, it's pretty irritating in this case. Votto and Phillips got hard hit base knocks, but it started with two out, nobody on.

Votto should have 60 RBIs but doesn't have enough base runners to knock in.

By the way, Votto was safe at home, the replay shows.

He was safe, but the throw was good. I've watched the Buccos play some this season and they just don't make plays like that.

It should be 5-0 Reds. Votto should have scored. Phillips should have been on for the Bruce homer.

And the first two hitters should have high OBPs and should have been on base and then scored.

Against this pitcher they would have been. I guarantee it.

And Ludwick should have had a hit too in the second. Hit it right back up the middle. Bucs had the nerve to position their players well.

Can't get a break.

1-0 Reds.

Pretty risky to run him on that play, hard hit single to right, fielder charged the ball well.

LOL. Okay. No big deal. I just saw him slow so he could dive. When I say hot dog, I mean you intentionally dive to make it look more spectacular. If he hadn't slowed there, I think he could've made that on the run and maybe hold Pressley at 2nd.

Frazier and Ludwick with bad at bats there. Frazier jumped on the first pitch and grounded it to third. Ludwick struck out on a pitch in the dirt.

The objective there, fellas, is to hit the fly ball. You wait for a pitch that could be hit for a fly ball.

Very disappointing inning.

Again, it was nice of Dusty to leave Leake in the game. I'm sure his parents are pleased, his other family members, and all of Mike's friends.

But with the man on third in the seventh inning, the Reds needed the strike out. I would have brought in Arredondo to try and get it.

So Mike now has his seven innings, the bullpen is rested, everyone is happy, and the Reds are losing.

Hardly Mike's fault for that last run though. Except for whatever ailed him in the 4th he's pitched a great game.

I put this one on the offense AGAIN. Flailing away at first pitches, not hitting in situations, and finally a mental mistake in a tight game that should NEVER happen. Don't want to open that can of worms again, but its as if these guys don;t really worry abput the Pirates - they are like a lot of us - ehhh, its the Pirates.

That one was on Phillips all the way. He took the throw at first and didn't focus on third at all. Heads up running by Bucs.

The irony is that Phillips has done that a time or two. Hopefully it won't be the difference in the game. Is it just me or is Thom going to be his father far too soon? I understand commenting on Phillips' failure to keep an eye on the runner, but Thom sounds far too ticked off about it.

I don't think so. He's usually a ground ball pitcher and he was inducing more grounders than usual tonight. He was also getting the swings and misses. I was fine with Leake pitching there. (of course there SHOULDN'T have been a guy at third...*grumble, grumble*)

IMO, that's three games in four days that Dusty left his starter in too long.

Dusty talks about being aggressive, but he is passive when it comes to removing starters. He loves to leave them in the game.

It's as if these guys are getting paid by the half inning.
