Ah My Groin, But Reds Beat Giants 4-2

As disappointing as it was to see the Reds lose the series to the Cubs, putting them back in first place, Griffey yank his groin and take the rest of the season off, that victory today over the Giants tonight sure was sweet. Not only did Bailey return and pitch well but he did so against a lineup which had at least four players I wasn't aware existed. You're not going to hold Eugenio Velez to one hit in three at bats very often, that's how effective Bailey was tonight. Throw in Nate Schierholtz in right, Guillermo Rodriguez behind the plate, and Rajai Davis, that's a very impressive lineup. This was a demonstration of what we Reds fans have to look forward to in the future.

McBeth still isn't able outs without first giving up some runs but Hopper had a nice night at the plate, dribbling grounders through the infield. And let me tell you 'bout Jason Ellison, that guy is an out of this world talent. Keppinger drove in two and Jorge Cantu added a pinch RBI double. Quite a game, one I'm sure everyone is very interested. At least we get to see more of Buck Coats. Reds! Reds! Reds!
