Saarloos Refuses to Let Opportunity to Pitch Crappy Pass Him By, Reds Lose 5-2
Kirk Saarloos knows that when an opportunity knocks, you've got to answer the door. Jealous of the recent spotlight cast upon Coffey, Weathers and Cormier, for their inability to get key late inning outs, Saarloos forced Reds fans to acknowledge his shortcomings. And wow, four batters faced, two hits allowed, two walks, that's some bad relief. If that doesn't get you mentioned in the first paragraph of tomorrow's write up, the author doesn't know what will. "Saarloos' Salad Goes Bad." The team continues to punch Arroyo in the gut, just three hits before the big Cardinals 8th relieved the pressure. Can't ask for much more from a starter. How about some runs tomorrow maybe, or at least some runners on base? No one is happy with a Cardinals win.
