Votto Would Like to Sell You a Wrist Band, Which You Know You Cannot Resist, Reds 6-4

Reds took the series from the A-holes last night, today they're planning a sweep. Then I can feature more pictures of that broom trying to win that lady over with some flowers or a soak in the hot tub. I'm already looking forward to the search for pictures tomorrow morning.

The team seems to have finally figured out how not to get beaten by Roy Boy Oswalt. Last night the key was Votto bouncing a ball off his pitching hand. Nice work Joey. Oswalts going to have a hard time operating the shovel level on his heavy machinery for the next several days. May also have trouble throwing pitches, which is fine, but since they're not the Reds, who really cares.

The offense was Phillips-less again, with Ramon Hernandez hitting in the four hole. Razor Ramon, however, knocked in the first two runs of the game with the slowest groundball base hit that the Reds Rocket has ever seen. But then the Astros came back. On Micah Owings you say with questioning inflection in your voice. Yes, sadly true. Owings gave up the lead the headed for the hot tub after the 5th with the game tied at 3. Each team added a run, Oswalt walked in the Reds' fourth. It is nice to see that hillbilly when he is less effective. And, in the 7th, as I'm sure you all know, Votto put the Reds up for good with a two-run bomb to left. Coco then converted his 13th save of the year in, wait for it, 13 attempts. Nice job team.

Arroyo takes the central pile of dirt today as the Reds try and wrap things up against some guy named Paulino, who has actually pitched pretty well against the Reds this year. Before tonight anyway. Reds five game over .500 and climbing. Reds! Reds! Reds!
