Reds Kill Fish, Share Experience with Children, Reds 3-2

As the league is starting to recognize, there's just no beating the Reds at home. They waited this long to get things together, so they're just going to continue playing well. Baloney, in the place of Cueto, who's out with dysentery, picked up his first career win, with 5 pretty good innings - 4 really good innings, if you don't count the number of people on base anyway.

The offense featured some early hitting then a lot of relaxing. McDonald led the game off with a bomb, which has been a nice theme for the Reds the last few weeks, lead-off home runs. Then Anibal loaded up the bases and Bruce knocked in two with a powerful broken-bat flare into left. It still counts and it's nice to see him back in the lineup swinging (mostly) and missing. The tail end of the bullpen, Rhodes, Masset and Cordero were rock solid again. Not much else to talk about. Reds win, no big deal. I'm sure there will be three more to follow. Reds! Reds! Reds!
