Reds Spitting Rhymes Like Fire, Reds 10-2

The Reds radio broadcast was ready to start choking the offense today as they, through 5 innings, were pretty poor against Chris Narveson. And who can blame them, don't you think I'd like to choke someone too, but I don't have time for that. And it turned out that Mary was a bit premature as the offense eventually got to Narveson and then turned on the afterburners against the Brewers' bullpen, running away with things. All of the offense presented Travis Wood, looking very pleased with himself, with his first Major League win. He probably got to take a beer shower afterwards. Good for you Travis. That's something that no one can take away from you.

Wood was overall pretty sound. He gave up two over five but struck out 6, including 5 in a row. But, for the second night in a row, was ferocious. Votto had three hits, including a bomb, to follow up the four hits he had yesterday. B. Phill was on base three time, stole a base and put the game out of reach with a grand slam in the 9th. If you are teaching pitching, that's exactly the game plan, fall down 3-1 then groove a fastball when the hitter knows you can't walk him. Hanigan laid down a nice squeeze bunt which is always fun and the team gets to head back home to beat on the Bravos over the weekend. They even rescheduled the Saturday game to accommodate a national audience watching the ball game. How about that? I'm sure the rating will be brutal. "Where the fuck ah da Yanks?" Reds! Reds! Reds!
