Reds Bludgeon Cardinals With Bats, 10-3
It had been a popular question around circles of Reds supporters, when is Alex Gonzalez's bat going to come alive? Well, that was answered tonight, where everyone seemed to be seeing the ball for the first time all season. Dunn was the only starter to go hitless. Gonzalez went deep twice and drove in five. The author doesn't think it's too much to expect this kind of production from the shortstop every game for the rest of the season. Griffey, powered by diverticulitis, went deep for the first time this season. Our friends at Getty Images were able to capture the image to the right, which I borrowed. Nice work Dilip Vishwanat. And get this...David Ross had two hits. Look at that average! .140 and rising. That was truly a savage beating for which they've been saving up the last week. Reds! Reds! Reds!
