Paul Janish Yanish's Big Day, Reds 5-4

Reds took game two of the series with the A-holes running their home winning streak to, seven? That's a hot team. They didn't hang the L on Oswalt but at least won a game that he started. That is happening more frequently as he ages but I believe his career record is still 22-1.

After the Kipster allowed many singles and many stolen bases in the first, the Reds' bats did the tighten' up, Stubbs hit the first pitch he saw out of the yard then old Janish Yanish doubled and later scored on a sac fly by Rolen. Kippy, who was recently voted the least popular player on the team due to unfriendly personality/venereal disease, battled through 6 and put his team in the position to win. At least that's what the paper said. He seemed to be having a battle with the strike zone and if 4 earned over 6 can be considered a success, we'll give him that.

The above-pictured Janish, celebrating one of the many big hits of his career, doubled in the go-ahead in the 7th and the bullpen finished things up with a nice couple of innings from Masset and Coco, with Masset striking out the side. Janish Yanish had three hits, which is likely a career high. Maybe not but I don't remember a lot of multi-hit games from the shortstop. And as everyone knows I have a photographic memory and never misstate facts which could be easily researched but are not. Nice win team, sweep today. Reds! Reds! Reds!
