Votto Proves Critics' Point that He's Just Not All-Star Material, Reds 8-6
Wood's hustle, however, hid in the shadows and cracked him over the skull in the bottom of the 5th. The Mets hit him hard enough to prompt an entry by Jordan Smith, who was not great. He allowed all of Wood's runners to score and added one of his own. Fortunately, that's all the Mets were interested in scoring. Rhodes and Coco nailed things down and the Reds resumed their dominant road trip.
Harang's back has evidently healed, so he's going to handle game two duties against Johan Santana. He's typically handled the Mets pretty well and has been spending some extra time lifting weights and eating mountains of food. Now that his brother has been released from the organization there is no one who can challenge him for both the strongest and handsomest man in the organization. Good for you Aaron. Reds! Reds! Reds!
