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