Harang Has Marlin Sandwich, Reds 5-3

Suddenly, after what has been for the most part a disappointing season, the author has less shame in being a Reds fan. Sure the Marlins are a poor baseball team, but those teams have given the Reds the fits this year. A nice ballgame against a bad team means just as much to us around these parts as beating on the Diamondbacks.

Harang was good over seven, only having the one inning with multiple home runs, and won his thirteenth. Majewski held the lead and Weathers slammed the door with his boiler. Valentin, working on a fourteen game hitting streak, drove in two including the go-ahead. Jorge Cantu got back in the lineup with a single and a run scored. Phillips had three hits, including a triple and a homer and the author goes to bed [passes out in an alley] happy tonight, dreaming of Harang dominating the Marlins on the way to his 13th win. Reds! Reds! Reds!
