The DDN covers last night’s Dragon’s extra innings win. (They were within one strike of ending it in regulation.)
News on 2nd round pick B.J. Szymanski:
Outfielder B. J. Szymanski continued to have soreness in his right knee and went for an MRI in the afternoon. Results were not immediately available.
Szymanski, the Reds’ second-round draft pick last summer, played in the opening four-game series at South Bend and was in the lineup for the home opener Tuesday when his knee began to bother him. It wasn’t any better Wednesday, prompting the MRI.
I’ve been a Reds fan since the late ’60’s, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in ’84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in ’90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.
