That's a Nice Victory, Reds 8-7

With the exception of the first two innings, of course, Reds fans have to like the outcome in tonight's contest with the Nat'ls. Nice to see a team that is not opposed to making game changing mistakes. Not too often, at least this year, where the bullpen bails out one of the starters, notably Arroyo. Now I suppose they're even for that 6-2 lead he gave them against Houston. The author would like to extend special thanks to Austin Kearns for letting Hatteberg's 8th inning double get in there, we know you could have caught it. We know what you were getting at, wink, shove it up your ass Bowden.

The author had a hard time coming up with a featured player but the more I thought, the less question that Valentin is pretty deserving. Santos' four innings of solid relief certainly was a nice surprise, and Cooter, nice second victory. The first one seems to have slipped past me, I'll have to do some research and go back and edit that post. Seemless. And Phillips saw the end of a long hitting streak which the author seemed to always forget to write about. We'll attribute that to not wanting the jinx the major accomplishment. But a late inning home run which proves to be the eventual game winner, is pretty unusual. Nice job Jay-vier, that's the pronunciation he prefers. Way to not give the author the pains in his head that makes it hard to live. Reds! Reds! Reds!
