Cork Wields a Very Powerful Bat, Reds 4-2

The offense took strides in becoming adequate again, with Cork leading the way with a solidly stroked bloop hit in the 3rd to drive in a couple o' runs. In case you were wondering, yes, his boiler was spilling over his pants when he made contact. Votto made it 3-0 with a double scoring Phillips. Arroyo did give Coco Crisp a break, allowing his first bomb of the season despite his overwhelming inability, but that was the only major blemish. Bronson went 8, gave up just the two runs and picked up the "w", which is an abbreviation for the term "win."

Coco even made an appearance and surprised all with a successful close out. He's back on track, as long as he has more than one run to fool around with. So, the Reds have won the series and a win tomorrow will even up the road trip at a solid 3-3, even with the debacle in Seattle, which is a fun term to use. Looks like there are going to be a lot more debacles going forward. Everyone can monitor my use of the term. Each mention enters readers in a drawing to win some new deodorant from your friends here at the Reds Rocket and their annual budget of about $10. Reds wrap things up tomorrow with Cueto speaking words of disrespect in Spanish to the Anglo members of the Athletics. Including that Elephant. He doesn't belong on the baseball diamond. Reds! Reds! Reds!
