Astros Agreeable to Allowing Volquez Time To Work Through Issues, Reds 12-4

Volquez was not very good in the 1st inning today as he struggled to remember where the strikezone lies and when he occasionally remembered, he left big, fat pitches in the middle of the zone where even the inept Astros' hitters could handle them. The A-holes batted around in the first, scoring 4. After Volquez bunted into a double play in second, Marty stated "he just isn't doing anything very well tonight." But then Volquez's weave took control and he settled in nicely for the next four innings. Allowing no more runs and exiting after 5 with 8 Ks. Four of the five hits he allowed came in the first. So, hopefully he remembers innings 2 through 5 for his next start.

But, as the title states, the Astros' pitching (Nelson Figueroa? Come on) was more than happy to allow the Reds not only to come back and tie but turn the game into a laugher. The offense piled up 12 runs, on 14 hits. Phillips and Janish had 3 hits each and Rolen drove in 3. The team stole some bases, the Astros played some bad defense and the Reds remained undefeated. The Astros, I suppose, remain defeated. At least they have their weird looking ace hitting the hill tomorrow - Brett "Boom Outta Here" Myers. Or do you prefer Brett "How Do You Spell Retard" Myers? I like them both. Anyway, his beard is big league, so he must know what he's doing. Fortunately, the Reds' bats also know what they're doing. A sweep is looming. Reds! Reds! Reds!
