Reds Like a Rainbow in the Dark, Reds 6-3

I'm sure many of you, like me, had a hard time concentrating while you were wasting time at work and during the Reds' win over the Brewers this evening on account of the passing of Ronnie James Dio. I won't waste the very knowledgeable readership's time with too much Dio trivia but Dio did more than sing songs about dragons, rainbows and magic. He invented the index finger-pinkie gesture simulating the devil's horns, which is awesome that you'll see this summer following Iron Maiden around on tour. He could also see the future, assuming there were enough model boats around, and predicted the Reds would great this season.

The Reds, affirming Dio's prediction, won another one this evening, this time over the Brewers. They waited to get pain in the ass Gallardo with his dominating stuff out of the game then took out their sticks on hogbody Big Frucking Nasty in the 7th. They dropped a solid five spot on Coffey with the big hit coming off the bat of Gomes in the form of a three-run shot to left center. Cueto was good again, lasting through the 7th in picking up his third win of the season. Don't worry, he'll probably throw a few too many pitches next came and the Brennaman family can hammer him about his focus on the mound. "Of all of the players in the majors today, Johnny Cueto is hands down the most frustrating person to watch pitch a ball game." The Reds conclude their two-game series tomorrow afternoon with Homeboy taking on Manny Parra. Come on Brewers, get your head in the game. Parra stands no chance. At least they know that coming in. Reds continue to impress everyone tomorrow. Reds! Reds! Reds!
