@ the game can't get a good pic of the lineups ... But it looks as if it's half Tigers fans here. So it might be confusing hearing the cheers on the radio. Think of it as a Cubs @ Reds game...

Cozart strikes out on a big curveball.

WildcatFan
06-09-2012, 05:22 PM
Umpire doesn't call strike three but rings up Heisey anyway. Everybody thought it was ball four.

Nice at-bat from Heisey. Started 0-2, worked it full, 9 pitches.

WildcatFan
06-09-2012, 05:23 PM
Heisey even went down to first like there was no called strike.

RedlegJake
06-09-2012, 05:25 PM
Verlander Ks the side but they worked him for what? 21- or 22 pitches? Get him out of there early

WildcatFan
06-09-2012, 05:25 PM
Votto strikes out on a 3-2 breaking ball. 3 up, 3 Ks for Verlander. 20 pitches.

_Sir_Charles_
06-09-2012, 05:26 PM
Heisey even went down to first like there was no called strike.

That's because there wasn't one. Sure, there was a strike...but not "called". Horrible job by the ump there. Heisey clearly didn't know the call, Baker didn't know the call. NOBODY did. Speak up numbnuts!

Showed the replay and he didn't even twitch from his crouch. Not sure what he was thinking there.

Arroyo looks great. Switching arm slots, lots of breaking balls.

Home run from Santiago.

RedlegJake
06-09-2012, 05:30 PM
Arroyo and his obligatory gopher ball

WildcatFan
06-09-2012, 05:30 PM
Left a ball up over the plate.

I agree. But you spoke too soon.

5-3 groundout by Laird. 1-0 Tigers middle second.

RedlegJake
06-09-2012, 05:32 PM
Good inning and he looks good nonetheless - just made a mistake on one pitch and Santiago took advantage

PuffyPig
06-09-2012, 05:32 PM
Where was that first pitch to Santiago? Good grief.

Looked just like the 3rd strike call on Heisey.

Maybe it was a strike and you just couldn't tell by blue's reaction.

kbrake

BP turns on a fastball for a LONG foul ball.

I've been thinking all week its the perfect combination. This lineup vs. this pitcher we could very well see 21 K's.

Three straight full counts.

Really working him - good.

Grounds out to third. Verlander at 27 pitches after four batters.

06-09-2012, 05:37 PM
end the strikeout skein. 5-3

WildcatFan
06-09-2012, 05:37 PM
This could be a rough day for Jay.

RedlegJake
06-09-2012, 05:38 PM
Bruce with a two bagger

WildcatFan
06-09-2012, 05:38 PM
And on cue he doubles down the right field line!

Puig Your Red
06-09-2012, 05:38 PM
At least they are putting together good ABs.

This could be a rough day for Ludwick...

RedlegJake

Ludwicj just ripping - everyone else working him, Ryan swinging away. No chance on that first pitch either

Verlander calling for a trainer.

RedlegJake
06-09-2012, 05:42 PM
Verlander isn't going to last if he keeps throwing 7-8 pitches per batter, now at 37 pitches

WildcatFan
06-09-2012, 05:42 PM
Check that, pitching coach.

RedlegJake
06-09-2012, 05:43 PM
Luddy at least made him work in te end. 4Ks for Verlander

WildcatFan
06-09-2012, 05:43 PM
Ludwick strikes out. Seven pitch at-bat.

WildcatFan
06-09-2012, 05:44 PM
Everybody in the stadium is getting a chance to talk to Verlander here.

Frazier grounds out. Verlander at 40 pitches through 2.

RedlegJake
06-09-2012, 05:45 PM
Don't get too many chances against Verlander. Wasted one there.

_Sir_Charles_
06-09-2012, 05:45 PM
Bruce and Verlander chuckling about something too. There was SOMETHING going on that half inning.

Worth strikes out on a 1-2 curveball.

6-3 groundout by Jackson. Quick inning.

If not for 1 pitch, Bronson looking as sharp as I've ever seen him.

WildcatFan

Agreed. He's right on the corners and moving the ball a ton.

WOW. That was a PRETTY pitch!

Cozart flies out on the first pitch. Six pitch inning there.

WildcatFan

I don't understand why when you have a chance to ratchet up his pitch count you start hacking away.

RedlegJake

kbrake
06-09-2012, 05:57 PM

I thought based on the Dusty pregame quotes hacking away was always the plan. I was stunned by the first two innings.

Boesch grounds out.

Young grounds out to short.

RedlegJake
06-09-2012, 06:04 PM
I don't feel so wretched when its Fielder that hits it though. A guy like Santiago? Blach

WildcatFan
06-09-2012, 06:04 PM
Must be tough to be Arroyo. You just have zero room for error.

Buckeye33
06-09-2012, 06:04 PM
Arroyo simply can't avoid the 2-3 hanging pitches every game that get taken deep.

06-09-2012, 06:06 PM
Reds need to think line drives. We are not gonna score at all if they think of playing long ball with Verlander.

calling it a double and hit

WildcatFan
06-09-2012, 06:09 PM
Called a double? That can't be right.

RedlegJake
06-09-2012, 06:10 PM
It is - the call is no error

WildcatFan
06-09-2012, 06:10 PM
That's that home field advantage keeping up a hitting streak.

WildcatFan
06-09-2012, 06:10 PM
BP bounces one right in front of the plate. One down.

Baker this morning:


“Twilight is a tough time for anything,” Baker said. “My brother was in the insurance business, and he told me that’s when most car accidents are. There’s not enough sun, and there’s not enough light to help you at that time. It’s tough to see the stitches on the ball.

RedlegJake
06-09-2012, 06:12 PM

_Sir_Charles_
06-09-2012, 06:12 PM
4 straight at 100 to K Bruce. Nasty.

WildcatFan
06-09-2012, 06:12 PM
Four straight 100 mph pitches to Bruce, who swings through.

Gainesville Red

Buckeye33
06-09-2012, 06:13 PM
And this is what Welch was talking about early in the game .. he can rare back and bring it at 99-100 when it is needed

Buckeye33
06-09-2012, 06:14 PM
3-0 .. green light him?

WildcatFan
06-09-2012, 06:14 PM
Somebody tied Ludwick's bat behind his back. Walks on four pitches. Loaded for Frazier.

RedlegJake
06-09-2012, 06:14 PM
loaded up for Todd

Buckeye33
06-09-2012, 06:14 PM
Step up Frazier, need a huge 2 out hit here

RedlegJake
06-09-2012, 06:14 PM

WildcatFan
06-09-2012, 06:15 PM
101 outside.

Bad bad call to send Hanigan to 0-2.

Gpot him on a pitch in the dirt but a great battle there.

WildcatFan

Swings at a ball in the dirt. Shoot. Anyway, 2-2 after 4. Verlander at 76 pitches.

RedlegJake

WildcatFan
06-09-2012, 06:30 PM
I thought for a second Arroyo was gonna fool Verlander into a bunt strikeout.

WildcatFan
06-09-2012, 06:31 PM
He's at 57 pitches through 5.

WildcatFan
06-09-2012, 06:32 PM
I'm only doing play by play cuz I was the only one in here at game time. Never done it before. Y'all tell me if I'm posting too much.

RedlegJake

You're doing great...

WildcatFan
06-09-2012, 06:34 PM
If nothing else, Arroyo is a much better hitter than Verlander.

WildcatFan
06-09-2012, 06:35 PM
Hey! Single to left!

RedlegJake
06-09-2012, 06:35 PM
Well, he does get more practice...and he gets a single!

_Sir_Charles_
06-09-2012, 06:35 PM
Bronson! Solid single to the left!

RedlegJake
06-09-2012, 06:35 PM

First pitcher to get a hit off Verlander in three years, Kelch says.

Wow - they just said it was the first pitcher in 3 years to get a hit off Verlander, Wainwright was the last

WildcatFan
06-09-2012, 06:37 PM
Crap. 1-6-3 DP. Two down.

RedlegJake

gilpdawg

But how many pitchers has he faced is the question. Obviously that wouldn't happen if he was in the NL.

WildcatFan
06-09-2012, 06:39 PM

He'd be so mad if he missed another one. I wouldn't want to be an umpire.

WildcatFan

Around 30 I'd guess.

Hi-C doubles.

Votto being intentionally walked. Come on, BP.

gilpdawg
06-09-2012, 06:41 PM
Heisey is looking much better as of late. Hope he can get it going. He should have stayed at first so they would pitch to Votto. Well, maybe not.

RedRoser
06-09-2012, 06:41 PM
If Dusty had Cozart lay down a sacrifice bunt, we take the lead on Heisey's hit! Why he rarely calls for the bunt in situations like that is beyond me. :confused:

Because it is the 5th inning and it will most likely take more than 3 runs to win this game. Had a chance to do some damage this inning with one on and the top of the order up. Cozart might deserve some blame but hard to get on Dusty for letting these guys try to score some runs.

Fouls off the eighth pitch of the at bat and 103rd of the day.

Good AB by Phillips. Making him work.

kbrake

This offense has stunned me today. Can't believe they have worked Verlander like this. Wish we would see this effort against the AJ Burnett's of the world.

GREAT at bat. Draws a walk to load em on the 107th pitch, 13 in the at bat.

Okay, who ARE these guys? Some of the best AB's I've seen in a long time. The whole team.

Verlander is good for 120-125 routinely, so I bet he gets into the next inning unless we break it open here.

RedlegJake
06-09-2012, 06:51 PM
He's done after this

He worked that at bat too, though...as long as they are working the counts, fouling it off, staying alive I don't mind the strikeout - its Verlander.

That at bat by Phillips was the longest of the year against Verlander.

Lots of solid AB's today. I thought today was going to go much worse than it has.

Arroyo, on the other hand, leads off the sixth with his 58th pitch.

Most likely. I didn't realize he was over 110. Thought he was at 105ish.

That at bat by Phillips was the longest of the year against Verlander.

That at bat by Phillips is usually an entire inning for the Reds. Sometimes TWO innings.

Looks like he's pitching around Fielder a little.

WildcatFan
06-09-2012, 06:58 PM
Nevermind. Froze him to run it full, then fielder grounds out to Votto.

The Reds should seriously considering trading Stubbs (who I think has good trade value) for a real LFer.

All depends on whether the real Chris Heisey will please stand up.

Ludwick hoping Verlander can go 2 more innings.

54 straight starts with 6 innnings - may not want to break that

Are you implying that Heisey should be the everyday CF?

Ump is guessing on these close balls.

Wow, Verlander back out there.

Gotta keep that 6 ip streak alive. The Astros did the same thing to Wandy last time we faced them.

Puig Your Red
06-09-2012, 07:03 PM

Over Stubbs? No. But I think Heisey in CF and a real, actual LFer who can hit 4th makes the Reds better than Stubbs in CF and Heisey/Ludwick in LF.

06-09-2012, 07:03 PM
Frazier flies out to right. Next pitch is 120.

NOW he's done. We'll see Marte next

The Tigers announcers made it sound like he might be back out there for the 7th. At 127 pitches? That's nuts.

Verlander almost doubled Arroyo's pitch count through 6. That's remarkable.

IMO, regardless of the score, Bronson out-pitched Verlander.

WildcatFan

Goodness. That's a little scary for a guy like him, but he's been really, really good.

Dude is a workhorse, and were I a Tigers fan I wouldn't have a problem with 127, but I wouldn't be happy with more. If it were the World Series or something....

The Reds do need a LF.

But Heisey is not an every day outfielder. I don't care how many hits he has today.

Nice snag by Hanny.

_Sir_Charles_
06-09-2012, 07:17 PM
Hmmm...2 in a row have gotten away from Bronson and then he hangs a curveball. Not a good sign.

I hope the tossing over to first hasn't gotten him out of his rhythm.

WildcatFan
06-09-2012, 07:18 PM
He's really worried about Santiago on first for some reason. Now I'm worried.

One more reaches, I pull him. He has already done his job. Kept us in this game.

Inning over.

I think Dusty should pat Bronson on the back for an excellent 7 innings and go to the bullpen now.

That 17-pitch inning is the longest of the day for Bronson.

He went toe to toe with Verlander and I think he out dueled him

Ludwick is simply a better defensive outfielder than Young. He's more fundamentally sound.

Would have been Verlander's third-shortest inning.
