Lt. Harang Doesn't Need Your Eight Runs, Reds Win 8-0

No better way to bounce back from two losses in one day to the Pirates then to put Aaron Harang on the mound. The offense woke up but Harang wasn't much interested. He went the full nine for his first shut out of the season. He only needed 94 pitches to do it. The Pirates are a waste of his time. But he'll really have to turn it up if he wants to get any of those third place Cy Young votes he's been shooting for. The voters aren't going to look to kindly upon those three losses.

The offense piled on Ian Snell. Griffey started the party in the first with a three-run bomb. Alex Gonzalez, in a rare appearance in the two hole [heyo!], had three hits and smoked that sacrifice fly. B. Phill had 2 hits, again, and Valentin had 3. Nice work everyone. Give B-Lizzle the same support tomorrow. Though another shut out is a high probability. Put a sawbuck on it. Series split tomorrow. Reds! Reds! Reds!

Why haven't you come up with a clever nickname for Harang yet?

How about something having to do with his uncanny resemblance to Sid Fernandez?

I think he looks more like King Hippo from Mike Tyson's Punch Out.
