Homer Bailey made what we all hope is his last minor league start on Sunday. Hopefully he will pitch well enough to stay in Cincinnati. Of course he will have to pitch better than he has been recently, and he will have to pitch better than he did yesterday. On a short pitch count, Bailey went 2.2 innings allowing 2 runs on 3 hits and 2 walks while striking out 1. Danny Herrera picked up the loss in extra innings by surrendering a run on 3 hits in 2 innings pitched.
Corey Patterson went 3-5 with a double and a run scored. Jolbert Cabrera and Chris Dickerson had 2 hits apiece. Dickerson doubled and hit his 2nd homerun of the season. The 2 combined for 3 rbis in the game.
