  1. 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.

  4. Mark Sheldon & Marty talking, Alex Gonzalez ‘made an appearance in the clubhouse’. Say he might be back on the field by Friday.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Gallardo is getting better as the game progresses, Belisle went the other direction. 4-0 after four.

  8. Certainly Gosling’s been hot lately. He was great in that 15-inning game in Atlanta, and just as good tonight.

  9. 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.

  10. You know what Keppinger is? A professional hitter. In the mold of a younger Jeff Conine, or Joe Randa.

  11. Thom sez: Edwin’s last sacrifice bunt was in AA-Chattanooga in 2004. No surprise that it didn’t work out here.

  12. 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.

  13. ‘sallright – that would have been a pretty Incredible doubleplay if they had somehow managed to turn it.

  14. That was close. If it weren’t for Stanton, there wouldn’t have been a guy on base to get a double play. đŸ˜•

  15. If his curveball gets any slower, the Reds should transfer his contract to a slow-pitch softball league.

    Base hit. Ugh.

  16. I don’t care if it was a great pitch, Chris Welsh, this inning is Stanton’s fault.

  17. Dammit Stanton, this half-inning has lasted about a half-hour and finally they score an insurance run. 5-3 MIL.

  18. 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…..
