Reds Hypnotized by Astros Swinging Bologna, 7-6
The author thought it would be clever to put together a photoshop commemorating Brad Salmon's official initiation into the Cincinnati bullpen, but Dr. Tiffy the photoshop extrordinare was sadly unavailable. You, as the reader, will just have to imagine the life cycle of the salmon, pictured at right, with the full grown salmon giving up a back-breaking homerun to Berkman in the 7th. I am confident you will enjoy the exercise as much as I did. Perhaps, the author was a bit premature encouraging the relievers to take on the name of any sea fish. The Reds official site is backing Milton, since the bullpen took away a potential win. We'll just subtract that from the 5 other wins Milton gave to the opposition. But that hit in the 4th was pretty sweet, went right through Wandy's heart. Tonight marks the third time this homestand that the team has scored at least 5 runs and lost. Losing at home and giving up a ton of runs, not too shabby. But tomorrow is another day and another Salmon. Woody and his small town sensabilities will take the hill. The bats are already preparing a beating beyond comprehension.
