Beating Fish is Rough on the Knee Caps, Reds 5-3

No surprise today, as Volquez was on the hill. He pushed his record to 6-1, lowered ERA to 1.12 and foiled an attempted concession stand robbery when he went to get a hot link after his start. Actually, he just kept Keppinger from going through the team lockers after he fouled a ball off his knee.

Fortunately, Jerry Hairston Jr. comes from a long line borderline capable baseball players, so everyone should be very excited to see him take over short for the next 6 to 8 weeks. That .315 average is legit. Paul Janish hops in the back of the watermelon truck leaving Louisville and gets to play backup. Get to know the name, if you don't already. He has the talent to be a legitimate .205 major league hitter. But he does have a nice glove which is worth something to all of us who still have Juan Castro posters hanging in our office. Nice win team, make it three tomorrow. Reds! Reds! Reds!
