Pirates Offer Little Resistance, Reds 9-1

During the game today, I realized that I have made very little of Ragweed Ross' hot start. Look at that average, well over .205 and his strikeouts are down from every other at bat. He continued today, 2 for 3 with 4 daggum rib eyes. Good for him.

Hairston, Jr. picked up three hits and Bruce reached base three time in game number two. Two by way of the free variety. And Votto went 3 for 3 with a double. After the six run first inning outburst the offense took 'er easy for the remainder. Disappointingly, Andy Phillips didn't make an appearance, maybe tomorrow. Patterson isn't going to forget this. AAA is no place for a major league talent like Corey Patterson.

On the pitching side, Arroyo looked pretty sharp. He allowed just the three hits over six, then hit the showers early. Then Lincoln, Weathers, and Bray demonstrated that they can pitch effectively after the opposition's spirit has already been broken. Nice job guys. Maybe one of you could save that for the next close game.

Harang lucks out tomorrow, getting matched up against Dumatrait. He showed a remarkable ability to be hittable to everyone last year. Somehow he was able to talk his way into a starting gig in Pittsburgh and has mixed in some control problems this year. Six walks for a guy who didn't strike out that many all last season? He's a real snake in the grass. Sweep tomorrow, no question about it. The team just loves playing in front of the third worst attended stadium in the National League. Reds! Reds! Reds!

Bruce is here... Daggum goes yard... I'm feeling a lot of emotions right now. And not just because I'm drunk.
