The Redlegs are on the left coast today, facing the Giants in an afternoon tilt. Discuss away!

I’ve seen the Reds and Giants play a few times. The first time I saw these two get together was this 16-inning tilt that saw the Reds win on a bases loaded walk (Bill Doran walked to score Reggie Sanders). The game lasted five hours and one minute, and I loved every single second of it.

Here’s hoping the Reds win today, either on a bases loaded walk, or some other way.

  1. I remember many Giants/Reds games in the late 40’s at Crosley Field. The Giants had one of the slowest teams ever with the great first baseman Johnny Mize at the end of his career and just before Willie Mays came up in 1951. The Giants had a couple good pitchers named Jansen and Hearn but the exciting team in those days was the Dodgers with Jackie Robinson, etc.

  2. Classic example of Dunn not driving in runs…
    Look at yesterday’s boxscore:

    Dunn was just 1 for 3 with 2 walks and 2 strikeouts. Oh…but what is that…there is a big old goose egg in the LOB column. Yes, again Dunn batted with the bases empty FIVE times yesterday. Meanwhile, Casey goes just 1 for 5 with another GIDP to kill any scoring potential in the first inning. Wouldn’t it be nice to have MORE people on base when Griffey and Pena come to bat?

  3. Not sure how many times Dunn had guys on base yesterday, but I know he came up with runners on 2nd and 3rd in one at-bat. A wild pitch scored the runner from third to tie the game at 8 and then Dunn worked a walk and later scored on Larue’s 3 run double which won the game.
