An afternoon game today in Milwaukee, where the Reds attempt to get back on the winning track. Paul Wilson and his 6.00 ERA take the hill against Wes Obermueller, who is sporting a nifty 1.74 ERA. Obermueller, however, has pitched only 10.1 innings, all in relief, so we’ll be seeing his first start of the season.
Use this thread to discuss the game today. Here’s a topic for discussion: can the Reds win with Paul Wilson as one of the rotation’s top two?
UPDATE: Finally!!! After bashing one just foul, Ken Griffey, Jr., crushed a ball to deep center field for his first home run of the season.
For the better part of a week, Junior has been hitting the ball very well, so it was only a matter of time. Seemed like he was snakebit, though; how many balls has Griffey hit to the warning track over the last week?
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
