Paul Bako Is One Of the Greatest Power Hitters in Baseball History, Reds 9-4

With the two bombs tonight, Bako set a new career high with 6 in a single season. And for those of you who didn't see the numbers flip over on the live video feed from GAB, that is now 21 for his career. Nice night from the man named Gabor.

Even with, an unheard of, three runs allowed by Volquez, he pitched well enough to beat the Fish to run his record to 9-2, (which is also the inverse of Harang's current record, though Big Ugly's still planning a reversal into a suplex). The offense jumped all over Mark "Why Am I On a Major League Roster" Hendrickson, chasing him him the third. Griffey hit a notable homer (discussed above) and Phillips also went yard. Then everyone took it easy and thought about the suit coat and brightly colored T-shirt they were going to wear after the game until the Marlins cut it to 6-4 and Bako said that's all Paul Bako is going to take and pushed the game out of reach. Cody Ross did get tossed in the 8th, so Cordero was able to relax and protect the 9-4 lead. Nice job Francisco, worth every penny. Reds! Reds! Reds!
