Reds Agreement to Limit Hits to 2 Backfires, Lose 3-2

Leake pitched another fine ballgame, limiting the Brewers to two runs over 7, while striking out six and not walking a batter but the one hit allowed by new 8th inning man, Ondrusek, went over the fence providing the final margin. The offense, alternately between huge run totals and no production whatsoever, had two hits, one by the pitcher against some guy the Brewers pulled from the concession stand prior to the game, Marco Estrada. Phillips wins the gold star for offense, with a two-run bomb in the 3rd. Votto walked a couple of time but if that's in my brief synopsis that means it was a quiet night with the stick.

Fortunately, the Sam LeCure hits the hill today. Yovani Gallardo, though dominant, typically doesn't have much interest in limiting the Reds' production. So, the Reds plan to take the series and even up the road trip to 3-3.
