I’m posting this game thread early in the day (I’ll set it to publish to the front page at 8:00 pm) because I’m on the road, though I expect to be home in plenty of time to watch this one. The family and I are in Charlottesville, VA, at a major college football game.*
The ol’ Redlegs pulled one out last night in extra innings, thanks largely to a five-run 8th inning…and no thanks at all to Mike Stanton, who has been a complete disaster this year. I kept expecting him to get better, but it has never happened. Glad he has a two-year contract!
Tonight, Bronson Arroyo takes the mound for the Reds. Let’s hope for a third straight win against the Giants. Discuss it here.
*Again, a disclaimer: I confess that, given the state of the program, any game involving the University of Virginia can’t reasonably be called a major college football game. I can pretend otherwise, though. It is my alma mater, after all.
