Diamondback Emphasize That They, Not the Padres, Are the Worst Team in the National League, Reds 13-5

The Reds, like the man to the right, grabbed the Snakes, shoved them up their nose, and then pulled the head out of their mouth to the amusement of all onlookers. For the first time this year, the Reds really unloaded on a team. The offense was hitting everything hard, especially off Garland. Which is not surprising, because he is a fine person but a terrible baseball player.

Willy Tavaras went 5 for 5 with 4 runs scored a stolen base. Rosales made up for some Tim Timmons-like defense at third, by hitting a sprinting homer and two doubles and Nix hit an absolute bomb to center, for his second homer of the season. There were many highlights for the Reds offense which, in its last five games, has scored 6, 6, 8, 7, and 13. Those are some awful big numbers for a bunch of guys who had little interest in scoring runs to begin the season. All the runs made the fact that Arroyo wasn't particularly effective moot. But no one is interested in that. Reds score many runs, Reds Rocket satisfied.

As a brief recap of my first trip to Snake Field this year, I saw both a Alex Smith, superstar quarterback, and Bobby Higginson Tigers jersey worn with pride and the local fans were booing by the third batter of the game. Reds score 20 runs today, wreck-up that low ERA of Haren. Reds! Reds! Reds!

I bought a round of toothpicks to celebrate. Needless to say, I became the most popular guy at the bar.
