First-round draft choice Homer Bailey took a 3-1 lead into the third inning, but gave up five runs, including a three-run home run by former Reds farmhand Alan Moye.
Bailey’s two innings of work matched his shortest of the season and his five runs allowed (four earned) tied a season high. The right-hander struck out three, walked two, was called for two balks and threw a wild pitch.
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.
