    how did the reds get their run?

    Don't make me resort to ESPN gamecast which is not close to real time!

    Kearns singled Casey to third, and then scored on a Burnitz error.

    And using your logic that positions don't matter, well if a guy is a .300 singles hitter then he better have enough speed to go first to third on a single, second to home on a single, and first to home on a double - he has none. He is a singles hitter who clogs the bases, hits into a ton of DP's, and has the fielding range of a turtle on crack (apparently!).

    Last inning Casey doubled, Kearns singled and there was an error on the outfielder.

    Ok im on gamecast, and my boy Kearns got a hit!!!!!!!! off prior!!

    It would appear we're getting to prior early, keep the pitch count up and don't let him get in a groove like he usually does against us.

    Also, Harang has got to hold the cubbies down from here on out

    Casey in on a Kearns single after he doubled in the 2nd
    I thought league average bullpen arms looked better than this

    Priors got a pretty nice strike zone.

    That strike one call to Dunn was ridiculous. I am in favor of using questec to call balls and strikes. These umps are terrible... Dunn has the worst strikezone I have seen in a long time. Anything above the ankles is a strike to him.

    small sample size or not some times a manager just needs to play a hunch since going by the book doesn't always work.

    Yeah, these umpires call strikes like turtles on crack!

    Agreed, I'd trust computers over some of the sock high strikes Dunn gets called on him
    Go Gators!
