Aaron Harang's a Hell of Nice Guy, Reds Win 9-5
The Reds Rocket would like to welcome Edwin Encarnacion back to the plus side of the Mendoza line. With Griffey out of the lineup, he's been able to get some consistent at bats and appears to have remembered that he can hit the ball on a regular basis. With the three hits today [the big one a base clearing triple off predictably ineffective Maholm] pushed that average to .221. Pretty impressive. And with Daggum Ross now hitting right about what you'd expect from an average pitcher, the offense is really starting to show some signs of life. Harang did not have his best stuff today, but with plenty of support, he cruised to his fourth victory. Very nice way to finish a series against the Pirates. Have a nice day off tomorrow, sleep in, watch one of Bob Barket's last episodes of The Price is Right, or maybe take this opportunity to get some tips from Adam LaRoche, that guy can rake. Reds! Reds! Reds!
