The Reds Know a Little About Beating the Brewers, Reds 9-5
The line-up was reorganized, Bruce bounced up to 2 and Phillips down to 4. Apparently, at least according to George Grande, there is some benefit to hitting in front of the reigning MVP. Bruce benefited today, hitting a bomb, in addition to a steal and a couple of runs. Phill and Stubbs each had 3 hits, Phillips had an RBI to go along with each hit. In fact all Janish-Yanish starters had a hit. Paul's still hitting .265, which is probably a little higher than he'll finish the season. So, it's okay to skip the hits that even the pitchers are picking up.
Leake hits the hill tomorrow as the Reds move toward taking the series. Aside from a general lack of knowledge regarding the rules of society, he's been adequate thus far. The Reds Rocket expects more adequacity tomorrow. Reds! Reds! Reds!
