We gave up TWO outs in the top of the 1st inning to score one run. Freel led off with a double against a rookie pitcher witha a 5.68 ERA. Lopez BUNTED him to 3rd!!! Griffey then Sacrificed him home. That is easily the dumbest thing they could have done in the 1st inning against a rookie pitcher. But, I can hear it now
Marty B: “Executed Perfectly”
George Grande: “The way baseballl should be played.”
Jim Tracy: “THANK YOU FOR THOSE TWO OUTS!”
The Reds scored their one run in the 1st inning, and then put up 3 in inning 2. I wonder what would have happened if we let our hitters try to NOT make outs. Would we be up 7 or 8?
