Reds Close Bar Early, Eat all the Sausages, 12-4
Josh Fogg must have been lifting some arm weights before the game today because he sure made the Brewers look bad. Made them look as bad as him team photo. Freel filled in for Encarnacion and made his mandatory error over at third and Phillips let a ball roll through his legs which gave Milwaukee a short lead, but other than that, pretty good game for the Redlegs.
It's getting to the point where I am going to have to consider offering some sincere praise for Corey Patterson. Not yet, but look at that average. And four bombs from the leadoff spot? Tonight, rather than just rely on Patterson to provide the offense, the rest of the team thought they'd get some hits as well. Freel, Griffey and Phillips picked up two each and the Donkeysaurus hit his first bomb of the year. That means he gets a full trough of millet. Dusty knows how to motivate. Volquez brings home the series tomorrow. Reds! Reds! Reds!
