Reds Drive Astros Into the Ground, Like a Stake, 2-1

It's nice to see that some of the other teams in the Central are also having some trouble of late. Notably, the Astros, who tonight lost their ninth consecutive game. But losing to the Reds is not something to feel bad about, you played a good ballgame, but Chad Qualls bites. As the Astros continue to lose, as they will certainly do for the next two games, I wonder whether their fans feel more like a large rock fell off a cliff and landed on their head, hammering them into the ground, or like the team is hitting them on the head with a mallet, and a large, comical bump rises out of their head. Maybe some birds would circle. Either way, nice to be in Houston.

So, B-Liz looked sharp tonight. While nobody enjoys allowing Adam Everett to have any part of a score, the one run allowed was a more or less fluke. Just the four hits to go along with eight k's? Simply outstanding, old boy. And Hatteberg, thanks for not allowing the team to fall back into the old habit of doing just enough to lose, big hit. I'd enjoy the game more if, in the future, Weathers didn't base his ninth inning off of old Rod Beck highlights. Gives me the fits. Anyway, real nice victory. Reds! Reds! Reds!

It is clear that Weathers is trying to imitate Rod Beck's waistline as well.
