Cargo Shorts! Reds 4-0
Troubling, however, was Masset's latest poor performance. He entered with a runner on 1st, gave up a hit and walked a batter without recording an out. Now that Arty Rhodes has arthritis in his ankle and is taking a little break, it is the Reds Rocket's official suggestion that Masset start pitching slightly better to ensure that the Reds win game which they are leading late. So, we'll leave that up to him or maybe I'll place a couple of calls.
The offensive star last night, as he is every time he makes an appearance, was Miguel Cairo. Old Man Inveirno went deep for his first homer for the Reds and even added an additional two-out base hit. The hit resulted in Hanigan getting thrown out at the plate by Garrett Jones but at least he's trying. Stubbs and Hanigan also had two hits. Hooray for the bottom of the order. Votto got, hopefully, the lone day off yesterday to rest his aching neck. If any reporter asks him about it, the interview is over. Over! Reds take the series today behind Cueto and his blister. Reds! Reds! Reds!
