Reds On the War Path, Reds 10-3

Reds were pretty impressive tonight against the Bravos. Bobby Livingston demonstrating his distaste for Native American heritage by pitching five pretty good innings in picking up his second win but also going 4 for 4 at the plate. Wouldn't be surprised to see him get some at bats for Daggum Ross late in upcoming games, if he gets to stick around, which he probably won't. The author read on the official site that the 4 for 4 performance was the first by a Reds pitcher since John Smiley. That's some lofty company. Who do you think had fresher salad, Livingston or Smiley? Watch out radar gun here comes some 87 mph gas. Griffey passed Robinson to move into sole possession of 6th on the all time home run list with a bomb off Villareal in the 3rd, he drove in four for the game. Eddie also had a nice game and the author is always careful not to forget Jeff Keppinger, nice first RBI of the season.

Now, the author vaguely remembers an outburst like this last series in Flushing. Then the offense followed it up by scoring 3 runs total the next two games. So, lets not do that again this series. The Braves are sending Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo out to the hill tomorrow to make his second career start and Arroyo has been pretty good for about a month, you put those two together and you've got yourself a pretty good chance to win, assuming the team scores more than zero runs. The author predicts a big game at the plate from Pedro Lopez, that boy's dangerous. Nice win tonight team. Reds! Reds! Reds!
