From yesterday’s game report:

Narron didn’t manage too differently than Dave Miley would’ve, but there were some changes:

Narron dropped left fielder Adam Dunn into the seventh spot in the order for the first time all season. Dunn hit a pair of long home runs to help the Reds build a 7-0 lead. Both, however, were solo shots, leading off innings.

“I told him if he hit one more, I was going to hit him leadoff Friday,” Narron said.

Narron wants to separate the left-handers in the batting order. That meant flopping Dunn and Wily Mo Peña. Hitting sixth, Peña struck out with runners on to end each of the innings before Dunn hit a homer.

So, it appears that his plan is to flip-flop Dunn and Pena in the order at 6 and 7. Who are the two most productive hitters on this team again?

    he also stated in an interview that he wanted to place Dunn in the #2 slot some time.

    The LH dictated the low spot, after yesterday I would hope that it doesn’t last.

    I can live with Felipe-Dunn-GIDP King-Griffey, though it’s not ideal. At least it gets the best hitters batting in the first inning.
