Eveyone is Very Impressed With Aaron Harang, Reds 2-0

The Reds finished out the weather-shortened series with Pittsburgh on a high note, with a nice, clean 2-0 victory over the P-rats. Harang was economical, treating the Pirate offense with much disrespect. Kyle Lohse and his tiny, novelty beard, also threw a complete game shutout, but Harang's was first. So, suck it Lohse. And that is the pitching performance that the Reds Rocket is going to expect for the rest of the season, from everyone.

Phillips went yard in the first and that's all the offense bothered with for the day. They new Harang was on and they could focus on eating sunflower seeds and playing pinochle. They got runners over to 3rd a couple of times but weren't too concerned with pushing them across. And hey, first triple play of the season, nice job Eddie. When the Pirates think about that, they can remember hte 3 hits they got over 9 innings. But, as they say, you can't put your arms around a memory.

Reds hit the road for the longest road trip of the year with tour stops in Milwaukee, Houston, and Chicago. I can't wait for the beating they're going to lay on the Cubs. Reds! Reds! Reds!
