As Expected, Reds Beat Holliday, Take Series, Reds 4-3
That time allowed the offense to slowly get going against Holliday and by the end of the 8 innings, they'd picked up 13 hits against him, a career high. Tough break Roy-Boy. The big hits were in the form of a Votto bomb, a Cabrera RBI single to center, and finally a two-run shot by featured photo Ray-Jay Bruce in the bottom of the 8th. After Harang's exit, the bullpen, even Coco, held up their end of the bargain. So, Reds leave town happy after taking a series from a good team before rolling into the Chicago to pound Carlos Silva today. Travis Wood is to be the beneficiary of the beating propounded upon Silva, making his major league debut replacing recently demoted Sam LeCure. Good luck Travis but remember, it is the Cubs. Nothing to worry about. Reds! Reds! Reds!
