Reds Rebound, Masses Celebrate, Reds 6-3

Harang, responding to the polite request that he turn in a better pitching performance, complied. He went 7, allowed 5 hits and generally looked like a pitcher should against the Giants. He ran into some trouble in his last inning of work but was able to talk Freddy Sanchez into flying out to Bruce in right. That evens his record up at 5-5. Nice job Aaron. He's on his way to adequocity, as opposed to sub-adquate. The rest of the pitching staff was its usual underwhelming self, Herrera giving up a hard hit single before exiting and Coco allowing a garbage run in the 9th. It's probably not great that he appears to be so hittable.

The offense was powered by Scott Rolen, who has been on fire. Flaming, if you will. That average is above .300 and he added two more extra-base hits last night, driving in the first run of the game and the third run of the game. Stubbs went yard and Gomes had a big two-run double in the Reds side of the 6th. I just heard Jon Miller say that Gomes is 8th in the NL in RBIs. Not too bad for a pseudo-platoon player. Also, looking at the numbers, Stubbs' average is all the way up to .245. He really prefers that 7th spot in the order, for whatever reason.

So, the Reds finish things out again Todd Wellemeyer today. No reason not to pound him for 10 runs and even up the series. Reds! Reds! Reds!
