Reds Bats Contract Pleurisy, Lose to Bucs 3-1
The author actually just learned what pleurisy is from his friends at Redleg Nation, during their in-game chat. They are a very knowledgeable group. So, not to let a chance to sound smart pass on by, the Reds' bats tonight appeared to have been suffering from inflammation of the lining of the pleural cavity surrounding the lungs, like Griffey, whose ailing chest cavity did make a brief appearance, drawing a walk in the 7th. This game would be more frustrating if Snell hadn't been overall pretty decent this year. But still, get some hits. And when there are guys on third with less than 2 outs, get them in. Dunn gave up his vow to only strikeout the rest of the season, to hit a bomb in the 9th. Though he was dropped to sixth in the lineup. That's probably not the ideal spot for him to take his swings, but again, I'm no Narron. We can all rest assured that Narron has the team losing for a reason, soon we will understand. An additional note, aside from the first, Milton's performance was tolerable.
