Share this:TweetPrint 39 Responses DevilsAdvocate 07/24/2007 Yo is on the mound! He’ll be a tough assignment. DevilsAdvocate 07/24/2007 Wow! Pedro Lopez is on the bench, and Keppinger is at SS, and Edwin is at 3rd, and Ross is batting eighth! All seems right in the world. DevilsAdvocate 07/24/2007 Cincinnati Reds Hatteberg, 1b Hopper, CF Griffey, RF Phillips, 2b Dunn, LF Keppinger, SS EncarnacÃƒÂon, 3b Ross, C Belisle, P DevilsAdvocate 07/24/2007 Milwaukee Brewers Weeks, 2b Counsell, SS Braun, 3b Fielder, 1b Mench, RF Jenkins, LF Miller, C Gwynn Jr., CF Gallardo, P Justin 07/24/2007 Belisle had a good 1st inning. Justin 07/24/2007 Keppinger up bases loaded. DevilsAdvocate 07/24/2007 At least they made the kid throw a bunch of pitches. On to the 2nd. Chris W. 07/24/2007 Nice AB by Kep. Fell behind 0-2 and battled. Justin 07/24/2007 would have been good if there was 1 down instead of 2:P DevilsAdvocate 07/24/2007 Mark Sheldon & Marty talking, Alex Gonzalez ‘made an appearance in the clubhouse’. Say he might be back on the field by Friday. DevilsAdvocate 07/24/2007 Nice catch by Griffey! Still a sac. fly, though; 1-0 MIL. DevilsAdvocate 07/24/2007 Yo struggling a bit with control. Belisle walks – nice patience. DevilsAdvocate 07/24/2007 Norris Hopper: when the opposing pitcher is struggling to throw strikes, don’t help him out by swinging at the first pitch for a foul popout. DevilsAdvocate 07/24/2007 Reds should get these threats started before spotting the first two outs. But that’s the story for two innings – 5 baserunners, all with two out, all stranded. DevilsAdvocate 07/24/2007 How about Junior! Diving! Doubleplay! Justin 07/24/2007 Poor Matt, not a good outing at all DevilsAdvocate 07/24/2007 Gallardo is getting better as the game progresses, Belisle went the other direction. 4-0 after four. Justin 07/24/2007 Gosling has pitched effectively in relief shockingly. DevilsAdvocate 07/24/2007 Certainly Gosling’s been hot lately. He was great in that 15-inning game in Atlanta, and just as good tonight. DevilsAdvocate 07/24/2007 Despite not really doing anything, The Reds are still in the game and down 4-1 with two more chances against the Brewer bullpen. Think they’ll bring in Balfour again? Or maybe Turnbow will have one of his trademarked spectacular meltdowns. DevilsAdvocate 07/24/2007 Adam Dunn is awesome. 4-3 just like that. DevilsAdvocate 07/24/2007 Ha, Turnbow is rattled. Throws the next pitch to the backstop. DevilsAdvocate 07/24/2007 You know what Keppinger is? A professional hitter. In the mold of a younger Jeff Conine, or Joe Randa. DevilsAdvocate 07/24/2007 Edwin looking to bunt. I don’t know about that plan. DevilsAdvocate 07/24/2007 Thom sez: Edwin’s last sacrifice bunt was in AA-Chattanooga in 2004. No surprise that it didn’t work out here. abner 07/24/2007 Ugh. Villanueva comes in with a hammer. Quickly 2 away. abner 07/24/2007 Can javy get us back in again? Wild one gets Kepp to second. abner 07/24/2007 nope. K for the LLM. Onto the 9th down 4-3 Matt B. 07/24/2007 Maybe if Stanton wasn’t so fat, that double play would’ve been turned. I am sick of seeing this guy. He looked out, though. DevilsAdvocate 07/24/2007 ‘sallright – that would have been a pretty Incredible doubleplay if they had somehow managed to turn it. Jared 07/24/2007 That was close. If it weren’t for Stanton, there wouldn’t have been a guy on base to get a double play. 😕 Matt B. 07/24/2007 If his curveball gets any slower, the Reds should transfer his contract to a slow-pitch softball league. Base hit. Ugh. Jared 07/24/2007 I don’t think I can remember seeing this many foul balls in an inning. Matt B. 07/24/2007 I don’t care if it was a great pitch, Chris Welsh, this inning is Stanton’s fault. DevilsAdvocate 07/24/2007 Dammit Stanton, this half-inning has lasted about a half-hour and finally they score an insurance run. 5-3 MIL. Jared 07/24/2007 How can anyone in the administration want to keep Stanton around when he gives up runs so consistantly? DevilsAdvocate 07/24/2007 Gotta love Hatteberg. Man, has he been a nice hitter as a Red. DevilsAdvocate 07/24/2007 Ahhh. Game over, 5-3 MIL final. crypticphrasing 07/24/2007 This game’s on Belisle. He’s not giving the team a chance to win when he pitches. He needs to go into the bullpen…..
