Homer Bailey tossed five shutout innings to match his longest start of the season. He scattered three hits, struck out five and walked a season-high four in running his personal scoreless streak to 15 innings.
But Brad Morenko, with his .60 ERA (2nd best in the Midwest League) couldn’t close the game.
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.
