Let’s recap today’s titanic struggle….
St. Louis 6
W: J. Garcia (11-7)
L: H. Bailey (7-7)
S: J. Motte (2)
–In the seventh inning, uber-prospect Devin Mesoraco made his major league debut. On the first pitch, Mesoraco doubled off the wall. Welcome to the big leagues, Devin Mesoraco!
–Edgar Renteria went 3-4 with a double, a run scored, and an RBI.
–Jay Bruce had a couple of hits, including his 29th homer, a 2-run shot off our old friend Arthur Rhodes.
–Poor outing by Homer Bailey: three innings, four earned runs on six hits and a walk.
–Chris Heisey went 0-4, struck out twice, and made an error. He’s had better days.
–Not much else to say. Reds try to win the series tomorrow.
