Reds Play A Little Better, Win Even, 4-3

Reds started things off slowly yesterday, they weren't down 10-0 in the first, but 3-0 in the 3rd with based loaded and no out. But Harang was able to fight his way out of it with a series of powerful blows. Then the team decided not to give up any more runs the rest of the way. Nice job Reds.

B Phill was the offense until the 9th. He hit two bombs, one with a friend on first. In the 9th Razor Ramon got sawed off but powered a single into center scoring Votto with what turned out to be the game winner. All-Star Coco closed things down in usual fashion. Prior to the game, Marty and Cowboy discussed, among other things, two points, the 50 at bats or so since Ryan Howard had hit a bomb and the current slump that Phillips is/was in. So, today they need to focus their discussion on how long Willy Tavares has been shitty and it's been several months since they saw Jonny Gomes eat a burrito in the dugout. I would like to see both of those things.

Reds have two more with the Phills before heading to New York to beat on the Mets. Homeboy on the hill today, hopefully that splitter still works. Reds! Reds! Reds!
